Description dive spot:
The classic dive, which is probably carried out here by all dive centers on site, begins in the Calanque au Lou (Wolf Bay). Then left shoulder to the underwater rocks. On the rocks between 15 and 40 meters, there are many gorgonians and larger groupers. Then head north past the Tombant Est. Then steep wall east. The dive ends in Calanque au Sombre (Shadow Bay).
Sometimes strong current prevails here, then the dive site can only be dived on the back side, but then very comfortable with the current.
