About scuba diving in France

France is located in the Western Europe and washed by four main bodies of water: English Channel, the Atlantic Ocean, the North Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. The stunning underwater world in crystal clear waters can be explored while scuba diving in the waters of France. France offers a wide range of diving suitable for all grades of divers. There are plenty of destinations on the southern and the northern coast of France as well as the island of Corsica, which is situated in the Tyrrhenian Sea in the western Mediterranean. The northern France is known for its wreck dives. Some of the wrecks are the HMS Svenner ( which is lying at the depth of 30m/98ft), the Susan B Antony ( lying at the depth of 30m/98ft), the Empire Broadsword (lying at the depth of 23m/75ft), SS Leopoldville and the Strathalbyn. In the Southern France, which is  the French Riviera, the best dive sites are L'Arche (The Arch), L'île D'or, La Gabiniere, La Pointe de L'Escampo Barriou, La Pointe de la Croix, La Pointe de la Galere, La Pointe de Medes, Montremian Head, The Togo shipwreck, Le Tombant des Sardinaux ( Seabreams' Drop-off), The Rubis Submarine wreck, The Donator Shipwreck and some others. The Rubis Submarine wreck is located around the Cap Camarat, between Cavalaire and Saint Tropez. The depth of this site is 40m/131ft. The visibility is excellent, but the currents can be strong. In these waters divers can see barracudas, moray eels, mola mola, groupers, conger eels, crayfish, snappers and goatfish. Corsica is a well preserved gem at the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, with dive sites like Capo Rosso, Ficajola, La Grande Vallee, La Muraille (The Wall), La Piscine d'Omigna ( Omigna's Pool), La Pointe de Scopa (Scopa's Spit), La Vallee des Merous (Groupers Valley) and others.

The marine life is thriving around the cape, with clouds of pink anthias, schools of snappers, breams, stingrays, moray eels, groupers and crayfish. The area is covered with beautifull corals including hard coral, soft coral, red coral, tube sponge, red gorgonian fan, yellow gorgonian fan and posidonia.
