Bitaro: Esta geocache foi arquivada por falta de uma resposta atempada e/ou adequada perante uma situação de falta de manutenção.
Relembro a secção das Linhas de Orientação que regulam a manutenção das geocaches:

O dono da geocache é responsável por visitas à localização física.

Você é responsável por visitas ocasionais à sua geocache para assegurar que está tudo em ordem para funcionar, especialmente quando alguém reporta um problema com a geocache (desaparecimento, estrago, humidade/infiltrações, etc.), ou faz um registo "Precisa de Manutenção". Desactive temporariamente a sua geocache para que os outros saibam que não devem procurar a geocache até que tenha resolvido o problema. É-lhe concedido um período razoável de tempo - geralmente até 4 semanas - dentro do qual deverá verificar o estado da sua geocache. Se a geocache não estiver a receber a manutenção necessária ou estiver temporariamente desactivada por um longo período de tempo, poderemos arquivar a página da geocache.

Se no local existe algum recipiente por favor recolha-o a fim de evitar que se torne lixo (geolitter).

Uma vez que se trata de um caso de falta de manutenção a sua geocache não poderá ser desarquivada. Caso submeta uma nova será tido em conta este arquivamento por falta de manutenção.

Obrigado pela compreensão,

Geocache Description:











Be safe! Be informed!

DON’T dive alone!

The shipwreck of the cargo ship Dori took place in 1964, and today it is “the” essential diving spot of the Azores, due to its unique characteristics in terms of access. With a length of 800 meters, the wreckage rests on a sandy seabed, sheltering diverse species, such as octopus, red porgy and ornate wrasse. Around it, lots of yellowmouth barracudas and Almaco jacks can be spotted. From a depth of 10 meters onwards, the shape of this sleeping giant is more easily perceived.

For a long time the local people have said that touching the blade of the propeller of the Dori brings good luck to the diver. With this underwater geocache you are now challenged to do it!

DIVING BAPTISM

Those who have never practiced diving are also able to enjoy the waters of the Azores. On various islands, the diving centers offer a diving baptism. Besides it being an unforgettable experience, the door is also opened to the discovery of the underwater wealth of the Archipelago.
