The dive center is located right in the middle of the natural reserve of the Strait of Bonifacio. The natural reserve extends over the entire south of Corsica. Thanks to our perfect location, we dive basically in the natural reserve.

We called on the same day and had the opportunity to dive around noon. The instructor was absolutely friendly and very calm. Our equipment was in a nice and tidy condition. Luckily we could spot a barracuda school during our dive. Perfect day
