2006 season review, Brevet d’Etat in the pocket, World Underwater Photography and Film Festival in Antibes

The season is slowly winding down, but the quality of diving has been excellent due to quieter dive boats and water temperature staying just over the twenty degrees mark due to some excellent autumn weather. Typically, the visibility has been consistently good to excellent.

Highlights have including rich dense gorgonian forests, clouds of castagnoles, giant lobsters and curious congers. We also have just enjoyed the 33eme Festival Mondial de l’Image Sous-Marine in Antibes, with some truly amazing photography and films on show.

For an impartial view of what it is like to dive in this part of the world, and experience a holiday with us please see the following write up featured in the November issue of Sport Diver magazine.

Alex Diamond, Director, has recently successfully completed his training to gain the French Brevet D’Etat (BEES 1ere Degre), making him an instructor recognised by not only the French Diving Federation, but the government. In total this qualification comprises over fifteen weeks of intensive formation, plus independent study and revision, contributing to a high level of experience, safety, flexibility and quality in all of the courses Diamond Diving conducts.
