Dive sites

Our dive sites scatter in the Gulf of Juan les pins, around the tip of Cap d’Antibes and the Lérins islands. This large area is known for its abundant marine life, warm water and good visibility.
These drop-offs, pinnacles and caves are rich of underwater life. School of fish wander in the posidonia and around the rocks. Colourful fauna and flora decorate the walls.

Choice of dive sites

We choose dive site not only depending on the divers’ levels. We also try to diversify our choice and to avoid the sites that are too crowded. Since the boat is only reserved for fun dive and advanced training for certain sessions, our choice of dive sites is more flexible.

Thanks to our fast boat and a privileged geographical location, these sites are within 5-15 minutes boat ride.

Water temperature

In late spring, water temperature normally stays around 18 degree.
During summer and autumn time, it could reache 25 degree, allowing a pleasant diving with a 5 mm wetsuit.

Depth

From 2 meters to 60 meters deep

Visibility

10-30 metres for most dive sites depending on the season and weather.
