Hi Patricia! I´d love to do some scuba diving too! I´m completely dependent on others because I do not have any equipment.I do have a PADI open water. I´ve been asking around and it seems you need to be at least with two persons to arrange some guided dives. For example via RioExtreme. They charge 600 per person for two dives. ALL inclusive.

How about you? Did you find anything? If you want to arrange something together I´ll be up for it. I´ll be around here untill the 25th of march.

Rio extreme also offers Rafting which I found interesting

Let me know what you think!

What? 600 per person? Forget about them. I've been scuba diving in rio since 2011 and the dive operators usually charge 160 reais for 2 tanks dive, equipment rental is about 20 reais for each peace (regulator, BC, mask & fins, wetsuit).
Scuba diving in Arraial do Cabo, for example can be a bit frustating because there are so many dive operators concerned only about making money. They usually take the boat to the closest dive spot, some can limit your bottom time to 40 minutes. Cabo Frio is much better in my opinion, same diving conditions and good dive operators.
There is also the option of going to Angra dos Reis or Ilha Grande and visiting Pinguino, which is the most famous shipwreck in Rio de Janeiro state.

In Rio I recommend the operator Mar do Mundo. They are located at the yatch club - Urca.http://www.mardomundo.com.br/

In Cabo Frio, the best dive operator definitely is Over Seahttp://www.overseadivecenter.com.br/

Angra dos Reis, Sottomarehttp://www.sottomare.com.br/
Good dives ;)
