Diving the South of France: Wreck Diving Paradise

The area from St Tropez to the Poqurelles islands is scattered with numerous wrecks sitting on sandy bottoms with clear warm water. What more could a confirmed wreck diver ask for?

For more details read our diving descriptions. For accommodation, qualifications needed, and so on - see the practicalities page.

The Mediterranean Sea is the largest closed sea in the world, 2500 miles wide. It is warm and temperate - neither reaching very high or very low temperatures. It is too cold for reef-forming corals and too warm for many of the marine animals of Northern Europe. It therefore has its own flora and fauna. The water is saltier than the Red Sea, but less salty than the Atlantic.
