Why go to a good centre when you can go to an exceptional centre of excellence at all levels

Amel - Facebook

Supervision and nickel infrastructures, near the wrecks and the reserve, and friendliness at the rendezvous… and the icing on the cake is a dolphin on the landing on the way back from Alice-Robert!

Magic!
An exciting first dive. Passionate instructors, a good atmosphere on the boat, brand new premises and equipment, in short everything to have a great time.
I recommend the eyes closed (remember to open them underwater, it’s beautiful)

Maxime - Tripadvisor
A super spacious, bright and spacious diving centre with equipment at the TOP.
Antoine and Jules you are really PRO. Thanks to Cedric our dive director for his little tea after the dive.
A lot of professionalism I recommend this Club
Fabrice - google maps

A rigorous and professional but also warm centre where it is nice to come.
I went there as part of the 2018 International Festival of Scuba Diving where I did my first deep dive in exceptional conditions.
I thank the whole team for these few days spent far too quickly and hope to be able to come back soon.
I strongly recommend to anyone who wants to make bubbles towards Perpignan.
I hope to see you next year for the next festival and if possible well before…..
