Diving in France

Explore diving in France

Surrounded by three seas, there is no shortage of diving in France. The country is large, and the dives are diverse. Northern France is where you go to wreck dive. There are hundreds of wrecks to see, especially along the beach where D-Day occurred. The region is easily accessible, and you can shore dive to several of the wrecks.

In the South of France head to the small islands offshore, or the lovely sites between Nice and Cannes. It is common to have visibility up to 30 meters in these clean, clear waters.

Divers will not want to miss Corsica, an island in France’s Mediterranean. There are fantastic corals clinging to canyon walls, overwhelmed by attractive fish. Shipwrecks can also be found here, and there is even a wrecked plane to check out.
