Founded in 1998 under the name UrzelinaTur, this nautical family company was passed on from father to son and received its name from the parish Urzelina, which is so dear to us and saw us grow. In the present year of 2017, we felt the need to rename the company to something that would help us stand out in the Azorean community. And so, we changed our image and now are known as the São Jorge Dive Center.

Our immense passion for the sea and for the sailing world led leads us to expand our company by acquiring a top of the line vessel and so the São Jorge Sail Center was born.

We are located in the Commercial Port of Velas in the Island of São Jorge, the most central island in the archipelago of the Azores. This location allows us full mobility between islands, especially in the Central Group.

Our main goal is to grant those who visit us a full-on, unique experience by showing the best São Jorge Island has to offer. Our team is young, competent and committed to customizing each activity so those who visit us can fully enjoy our service.
