Discover Diving France

Would you like to explore the Calanques in some way other than on foot or by boat? How about diving into the transparent waters and exploring the sea bed? The site of the Calanques, which boasts an impressive landscape, to say the least, proves to be just as fascinating and rich underwater. Thanks to the diving clubs, deep sea spots are accessible to all, and diving guides can show you some incredibly beautiful places like
The pointe de Cacau: here, you can watch congers and sometimes lobsters, groupers and squid.
Castel Vieil: at this site, the rock is hollowed out into little nooks, and corals and anthozoas thrive.
The coral cave: located beneath the cliff, this overhang coated in coral is the place to come to see sea bass swimming around, and if you are lucky you may even spot a sun-fish in the middle of the blooming red sea fans.
The Calanque d'Oule: this place is full of small creatures like sarpa salpa, sea bass, slipper lobsters and prawns, but also moray eels and congers.
Morgiou: you may well wish to return more than once to this site, which is full of corals and sea fans. It is also home to forkbeards and spiny lobsters, who lurk in the shipwrecks on the seabed.
The diving clubs offer different training options adapted to each individual's level. You can take training courses to reach level 1 (6 dives, equipment provided, certificate, educational materials, etc.), 2, 3 or even NITROX and certified NITROX diving training.
Expect to pay around ?50 for an introductory dive and ?30 for supervised diving in the day time.
Diving Clubs: introductory courses, improvement courses, certificates and air refills.
