An Introductory Dive, also known as a "Discover Dive" or a "Resort Dive" is intended for someone that has no scuba diving diploma yet.
It takes place on the afternoons. The meeting is at 2 pm at the diving center where an instructor equips you before joining the boat in Cassis port. The dive starts form the boat, somewhere near the creeks. Every introductory diver is accompanied by an instructor. The dive is maximum 6 meters deep and lasts approximatively 30 minutes long. The boat returns to the port at 5 / 5:30 pm. Back to the diving centre, we deliver a diving certificate.
It is necessary to book in advance by contacting us.
The introductory dive, all inclusive (gear, afternoon on the sea, instructor, diving certificate, taxes) costs 63 € / person.
Every diver already having a diploma wishing to do an exploration dive must possess a medical certificate less than one year old attesting no health contraindication, and papers attesting his or her experience (level cards, diving booklet).
The prices of exploration dives with or without gear rental are available on the prices page.
Exploration dives are intended for divers with at least one scuba diving training.
What is characteristic of dives in the Parc national des Calanques is that it is full of colours (coral, red and orange gorgonian sea fans, yellow anemones, yellow lone corals, ...). Of course, around this wanders the unfixed fauna characteristic of the Mediterranean (according to the seasons : grouper, octopus, breams, sunfish, Saint-Pierre, basket stars, barracuda, tuna, ...).
Organization of dives
Usually, morning dives are only for advances divers. Afternoon dives are open to all and the choice of the diving site is done according to the less advanced divers.
On the morning, the meeting is at 8:30 am at the club to equip ourselves. We dive from the boat, alongside the cliffs, outside the creeks (maximum 45-50 meters deep), with the possibility to stop at the desired depth of course. On the afternoon, the meeting is at 2 pm. We usually dive inside the creeks with smaller depths, but with rifts, small caves and light holes.
