Let’s Go Riviera feature, weekend PADI course deals

The couple of weeks have been spent diving with clients and journalists at our fabulous partner dive centre on the Cap D’Antibes, already resulting in a great write up in the regional English speaking paper and events guide, “Let’s Go Riviera”.

Their writer Peter Hawkins put together a great eye witness account of his first scuba diving experience. The dive centre has three boats, great rental kit, generous tank fills, free private parking and great shower facilities. Water temperature has now reached 18 degrees and 45 mins in the water with a 5mm one piece plus 5mm shorty is totally comfortable.

Whilst diving of late we been treated to loads of octopus, doris geant (a large colourful blue and yellow nudibranch), schooling peacock wrasse, weird orange coloured scorpion fish (a mutation due to the reproductive cycle I am told), morays with cleaner shrimp, galatees and much much more. Further evidence of the migration of tropical species to the Med is the catch of a local fisherman recently of a 1m 30cm Great Barracuda. We hope to see some of those underwater later in the season!

Do not forget that we offer the PADI Advanced course and a range of specialities (inc wreck, deep, nitrox and underwater photography) that fit nicely into a short break and are still offering good deals for certain parts of the season. Current special offers include the Open Water Referral (four dives, three nights) in Antibes for £325 and the Advanced Open Water course (five dives, four nights) for £379.
