Azores - latest?

Hi All,

Looking for current info on the Azores and whom to contact for arranging freediver friendly boats etc.
Looking at a possible trip out there late this summer.

We are currently trying thru Tony Eynon of the UK but are having trouble making direct contact with him. Is he around or is he just extremely busy?

BTW Does anyone know if the project titled " Inhale - The Azores in One Breath" ever was completed?

Thanks,
Mike.

Re: Azores - latest?

I purchased the Video from Vimeo.
No problem doing so :>)

Nice spearo Video and shows mostly the fish to be found there.

The Video does not help in planning a trip there and that is mostly what I hoped for.

I tried contacting a few tourist organizations there for assistance, but still waiting for responses.

So far, planning to go to the island of Pico, as from the little we have learned, that may be the place to do a recon of the area.


Mike.
