Diving the Mediterranean sea, near Marseille

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I went diving two weeks ago in the South of France near Marseille.

Marseille is known as being the place where recreational diving has been invented (Thanks to Jacques Yves Cousteau). This is also the place where he created the first regulator "Cousteau Gagnan 45".

 

I really love diving in the Mediterranean sea. Big walls, giant red gorgonians, clear water and large school of fish !!!

I know that many of us are reluctant to dive there, but it is not so cold... We had 21°c on the surface and 16°c around 40 meters.

A good 7mm semi-dry is perfect.

 

I'd like to share with you few shots taken that weekend, and hope that I'll give you the envy to try a dive in our waters !!!

Very nice, Damien! It certainly makes me want to dive there. Love those gorgonians and the fish schools.

Magnificent images!

 

But 16C is cold-water diving to the Americans...
