There are great places, the most gourgeous and untouched is Fernando de Noronha, but way the most expensive. You have in Bahia a place called Abrolhos Marine Park with rich corals and marine life, you can even see whales from November to March. Porto de Galinhas in Pernambuco is awesome too, known locally as "the golden coast", with a beautiful picturesque town. You can also try the "Sunny Coast": Buzios, Cabo Frío, and Arraial do Cabo. You'll find turtles, sea horses, corals, tropical fish, moray eels, and if you have proper certification they let you reach shipwrecks and take deep dives. These cities are about 2 hours from Rio de Janeiro.
The fact is that wherever you go you'll find great infrastructure for divers and unbelievable beauty. If you need some more info write me a message.
Good luck!

there are 2 marine reserves in Brazil. One is the mentioned Fernando de Noronha (but is an island and a bit expensive to get /stay there). the other one is in southern Brazil : Bombinhas, Santa Catarina.

Lovely place, beautiful green bays and white beaches,lots of scubadiving schools and places too and accomodation of all sorts. It is very crowded with tourists in january and feb., brazilian and argentinian. Westerners havent discovered the place yet. For the rest of the year it is quiet.
