Once you have had a glimpse of the magnificent landscapes of Corsica, how about exploring its sea beds?
The Plongée Castille team will take to the water for you, offering a variety of services, including baptisms, explorations, and training programmes.
Baptisms, which are the first step into the underwater world, are accompanied by a special instructor. This initial diving experience in shallow water will nevertheless give you the opportunity to observe over a dozen different species. Once you have got over this first hurdle, you can then start to explore a little more, and with four excursions every day, the club is able to offer a variety of explorations and sites to visit. Excursions are divided into two categories: dives for all levels and the Calvi classics.
Dives for all levels, suitable for novices (involving depths of between 66 ft and 132 ft), will enable you to explore some extraordinary sites. They take place in impressively vibrant diving spots such as the Revellata reserve, Saint-François, Punta Vacaja and Punta Spanno, among others.
The team is extremely familiar with all these spots and will guide you to sights of particular interest, such as flotsam and jetsam, previously unexplored taluses, shipwrecks, etc.
Whilst the dives for all levels, as the name indicates, cater to a wide audience, the "Calvi classics" will satisfy more experienced divers who are looking for a more thrilling experience involving a greater level of technique and greater depths, in the Punta Bianca, Sec du Lion and Sec du Clocher areas.
If even that leaves you hungry for more, Plongée Castille has uncovered new diving spots at Sec des Gorgones, Sec de Cavallo, Grotte à Corail, and elsewhere.
For those with a particular interest in history, the club's team organises daily dives into the past, guiding divers to the wreck of a B-17 bomber from World War II, shot down in 1944.
