Scuba diving in France: things to know before you go

Scuba diving in Port-Cros National Park France

Like many things, the French like to do it differently. Scuba diving is, unfortunately, one of those things that don’t work in the same way the rest of the world does. This article is not meant to judge whether it is a good thing or not. It is a practical guide if you intend to visit France with scuba diving in mind, or if you live in France but you trained abroad, and you would like to explore the best dive sites in France, from diving in Marseille to its furthest overseas territories of the Pacific Ocean.

Understand PA & PE equivalences

Wreck diving in Le Lavandou France

What does PA mean? “Plongeur Autonome” = Autonomous Diver

What does PE mean? “Plongeur Encadré” = Supervised Diver (with a Divemaster or an Instructor)

What does the number 12, 20, 40 mean? It is maximum depth in meters the diver is allowed to in the PA or PE case

In France, you do not necessarily do fun dives with a Divemaster, hence the different cases. If you request to have a guided dive, it usually comes at an additional cost.

However, according to the classification below, you may dive deeper depending on your scuba diving certification level:

PA case without a dive leader

  • PA12: Autonomous Diver who can go down to 12 m maximum without a dive leader or an instructor. You can be granted PA12 in France if you are a certified PADI (or equivalent) Scuba Diver. Note: in practice, you will be usually asked to be certified Open Water Diver.
  • PA20: Autonomous Diver who can go down to 20 m maximum without a dive leader or an instructor. You can be granted PA20 in France if you are at least a certified PADI (or equivalent) Open Water Diver. Note: in practice, you will be usually asked to be certified Advanced Open Water Diver.
  • PA40: Autonomous Diver who can go down to 40 m maximum without a dive leader or an instructor. You can be granted PA40 in France if you are at least a certified PADI (or equivalent) AdvancedOpen Water Diver + Deep Specialty. Note: in practice, you will be usually asked to be certified Rescue Diver.

PE case with a dive leader

  • PE20: Supervised Diver who can go down to 20 m maximum with a dive leader or an instructor. You can be granted PE20 in France if you are a certified PADI (or equivalent) Scuba Diver. Note: in practice, you will be usually asked to be certified Open Water Diver.
  • PE40: Supervised Diver who can go down to 40 m maximum with a dive leader or an instructor. You can be granted PE40 in France if you are at least a certified PADI (or equivalent) Open Water Diver.Note: in practice, you will be usually asked to be certified Rescue Diver.

In my case as a PADI Divemaster with a Deep Specialty, I am considered as a PA40, but any new Dive Director I meet needs to confirm it. I recommend having your scuba diving logbook up-to-date and a positive attitude. For information, PADI (or equivalent) Divemasters cannot lead dives in France, and PADI (or equivalent) Instructors cannot teach in France.

When I say France, it means its main territory in Europe with Corsica, its overseas territories in the Caribbean & South America (Martinique, Guadeloupe, Saint Martin, Guyana) and the Indian Ocean (Reunion Island, Mayotte). New Caledonia and French Polynesia Sports Laws are based on the French Sports Law but have more flexible arrangements. In New Caledonia, I can be allowed to lead a dive as a PADI Divemaster for instance.

Understand liability release does not exist in France

Scuba diving in Cavalaire France

Scuba diving is ruled by the Sports Law in France. It gives the person in charge of the dive, called the Dive Director, all the responsibility for what will happen during the whole time of the dive. So you will never sign any liability release in France, the scuba diving centre is entirely responsible for you.

Based on this principle, it is essential to understand that this Dive Director will not take any unnecessary risk if he does not know the level of a scuba diver he never met before. So don’t be shocked if you are not immediately granted the equivalence explained below or ask to go first on an easier dive for observation.

Please try to be understanding. At any time, “gendarmerie maritime” can come and stop the boat, ask everyone’s dive computer to check the maximum depth of each diver and compare it with the roll. If anyone went below his authorised depth, the Dive Director is held responsible and can be fined.

Don’t forget to bring a medical statement from your doctor

Florine Scuba diving in Toulon France

One important point that nobody will ever tell you : most of the time you will be asked for a medical statement from your doctor saying you are fit for scuba diving. The statement must not be older than one year. You will need to show this document before going on your first dive. This is not a legal requirement, but since the Dive Director, as explained above, is fully responsible for you, he/she usually wants to take this risk away by asking this mediacal statement.

If you have no idea what it should look like, you can use this medical form made by PADI.

I have never been asked to show my scuba diving insurance. The main reason is if we have a diving accident in France, we will be covered by Social Security, which is true to some extent when you have a good health complementary insurance (people living and working in France have this included in their salary package). Make your life easier by always having a valid scuba diving insurance for all the additional medical costs (hospitalisation, repatriation, additional treatments later).

  • If you are an EU citizen, make sure to ask your European health insurance card.
  • If you are not an EU citizen, make sure to have a scuba diving insurance.

The best places to go scuba diving in France

Diving La Fourmigue lighthouse Golfe-Juan Antibes

Based on the regulation explained above, you should be able to dive anywhere. However, there is a difference between theory and practice. To be honest, popular areas with foreign tourists will be your best bet to make your life easier. My recommendations are :

  • French Riviera, the Mediterranean coast from Hyères to Menton in the south of France
  • Martinique & Guadeloupe in the Caribbean
  • New Caledonia &French Polynesia in the Pacific Ocean

For areas such as Northern France and Normandy unfortunately, all scuba diving centres are associative clubs affiliated with the French Scuba diving Federation (FFESSM, equivalent to BSAC in the UK), and it will be hard, almost impossible to go diving there if you do not know someone.

Can you scuba dive in France if you don’t speak French?

Diamond Diving Golfe Juan French Riviera France

I know I know… the reputation of France for its English speaking skills is not at its best… but believe me, things have slowly started to change. For instance, did you realise you are reading a diving blog in English written by a French girl?

Once again, touristic areas will be your best bet to find scuba diving centres who can offer service in English. On France’s mainland, the French Riviera will be the place to go.

Are you hesitating to contact a dive centre to know if they speak English? Join our group on Facebook where French scuba divers who speak English will help you to find out.

When Are You Going To Start Or Stop Using Duolingo?

When Are You Going To Start Or Stop Using Duolingo?

When are you going down in French Duolingo? is an interesting question that many people ask. There are a few different ways to answer this question, and it really depends on what you are trying to say. If you want to ask someone when they are going to start using Duolingo, then you would use the question ” when are you going to start using Duolingo?” However, if you are asking someone when they are going to stop using Duolingo, then you would use the question ” when are you going to stop using Duolingo?”

In addition, the words “Tu es o cette semaine” can be included.

Why Are You Going Down Now In French Duolingo?

There are a few reasons why someone might be “going down” in French Duolingo. They may be struggling to keep up with the pace of the program, or they may be having difficulty understanding the material. Additionally, they may simply be losing interest in the language. Whatever the reason, it is important to remember that everyone learns at their own pace and that there is no shame in taking a step back to review and refresh your knowledge.

When you go to work, are you going to the office or you are going around? It would be acceptable if you said, “I’m turning around here to go to work.”

The Inconsistency Of Duolingo’s French Course

Why do you want sugar? Duolingo sometimes says “Vous voulez du sucre?” and then makes the correct choice of “Tu veux de sucre?” Are you going to your place? Vas-tu chez toi?” can now be ordered (05/2021). Can you open the door? How are you doing, in the Porte, “Peux-tu ouvrir la porte.” There are several accepted answers to the question. You should not include a hyphen in the form, which is not optional. Yes, because the infinitive – ouvrir is required.

Are You Going To Your Place In French Duolingo?

In French, you would say “est-ce que tu vas à ton endroit sur Duolingo?” This is translated to “are you going to your place on Duolingo?” Duolingo is a website that helps people learn different languages.

It is critical to know the local expressions when traveling abroad in order to communicate effectively with one’s host country. que is one of the most difficult words to understand, despite its widespread usage. The term qu can also be translated as that, that, what, who, or which, and it is used to introduce a relative clause. In this context, the word “que” can be translated to “that,” “what,” or “which,” as well as used to introduce a relative clause. The phrase Je ne vois pas le livre, which means “I don’t see the book you have there,” would be interpreted similarly. This question is commonly asked, Rentrez-vous Chez vous?, when someone inquires if they will be coming back home. A? is also accepted, as is the phrase, “I wish you a pleasant vacation.”

In The Next Lesson. How To Be Polite In French: The Dos And Don’ts

Vas-tu chez toi? has now been accepted as the first sentence. As a result, it is appropriate to say this to a person while leaving their house. Is this ‘Tu vas / ton appartement, pas vrai’? As an alternative, it would be less polite. The second sentence, “O allons-nous déjeuner?” is preferred, and it is accepted. Instead of ordering, ask someone where they want to go to lunch and be more diplomatic. The third sentence, “Can you go to the supermarket, please?” is accepted as well. When you’re in the market for groceries, this is a good way to ask someone if they’ll be able to take you. In French, do you want a little sugar in Duolingo? A person may be asked this question as part of the Duolingo process to determine whether they want to learn more. If someone says Tu veux dure suc? Duolingo assumes they want sugar and will show them how to pronounce it. As soon as the next lesson is complete, please do so. Duolingo assumes that the person does not want sugar, and no one will be able to tell them how to say tu veux de sucre.

Do You Want A Little Sugar In French Duolingo?

In French, the phrase “do you want a little sugar?” can be translated to “est-ce que tu veux un peu de sucre?” When ordering coffee or tea at a café, it is common to ask for sugar on the side so that you can add as much or as little as you like. In Duolingo’s French course, this phrase is taught in the lesson on ordering drinks.

What’s Wrong With Duolingo’s Translation Of Tu As Faim?

How hungry are you? Tu as faim is proposed as a Duolingo translation.

Do You Get Up Early Or Late French?

Whether someone gets up early or late in the morning is generally a matter of preference. Some people find that they are more productive if they start their day early, while others prefer to sleep in and get going later on in the day. There is no right or wrong answer, although some people may find that their work or school schedule dictates when they have to get up. In general, people who get up early tend to go to bed earlier as well, while those who stay up later often find themselves sleeping in the next morning.

What Are They Reading In French?

Duolingo is a website that provides a variety of learning materials in French and English. In the following article, they ask the question, “What are they reading in French?” and provide a few answers. The standard answer for this question is, “Quo’est-ce qu’ils lisent?” Informal is also apropos: lire quoi?

My top 10 of the cheapest diving destinations in the world

Scuba divers Koh Tao Thailand South West Pinnacle

Scuba diving doesn’t have the reputation of being a cheap hobby, so it could come as a disadvantage when travelling alone. However, I have been surprised more than once. I found scuba diving destinations with soft diving rates in many places around the world, locally and on tropical islands. Even if it sounds counterintuitive, it is possible to combine budget travel and scuba diving by going to the 10 cheapest diving destinations I listed below. If the cost of your scuba diving holiday is something holding you back to travel the world on your own and ticking off the best dive sites from your bucket list, check these places first.

Read Post  What Not to Do If You Want to Get Your Friends into Scuba Diving

The cheapest areas to go scuba diving include South-East Asia, the Mecca of budget scuba diving, and Central America and Southern Europe. Even the Red Sea, one of the top world-class diving areas, is one of the most affordable destinations for scuba diving. Note that these destinations are affordable from a scuba diving and a travel point of view. What’s the point of a dive below 20€ if you can’t find accommodation below 200€ a night? Like me, check booking.com to find accommodation at the best price for your next diving adventure.

Please note that the prices below are only an indication. They are based on the rates for 2020 of the 5 first diving centres (when booking direct) ranking on Google for each diving destination.

Summary

1 – Thailand

Diving Koh Tao Thailand - cheapest diving destinations

In the last decades, Thailand has acquired the reputation of the place to go if you are looking to start scuba diving on a budget. Indeed, this is where I headed in 2009, and in Koh Tao especially. The island is now famous for being the scuba diving school island for divers coming from all over the world thanks to its affordable prices both on diving, accommodation, food while offering fantastic landscape and great beach parties.

I realised later Thailand is not the only place with low prices on scuba diving, but it is indeed an excellent place for beginners thanks to its easy conditions with almost no current and warm waters.

While Koh Tao doesn’t offer colourful coral reefs and marine encounters of the level of the country’s top dive site, the Similan Islands, it is still a great diving destination. The dive sites close to the islands have little to see but are great for the underwater classes of the Open Water Course. Just by taking the boat a bit further, dive sites such as Chumphon Pinnacle and Sail Rock boast incredible marine life, including regular whale shark encounters!

Koh Lanta is another popular destination for backpackers who love scuba diving. The island is located in the south of Thailand. I have yet to discover its waters!

Prices in Koh Tao

  • Price per dive from 1,000 BHT / 27 € / £ 25 / $ 32 (with rental gear included)
  • Price per dive from 950 BHT / 26 € / £ 24 / $ 30 (without rental gear)
  • Price per dive from 800 BHT / 22 € / £ 20 / $ 26 (as in a 10-dive package)
  • Price for the Open Water course from 11,000 BHT / 297 € / £ 275 / $ 352

Prices in Koh Lanta

  • Price per dive from 1,550 BHT / 42 € / £ 39 / $ 50 (with rental gear included)
  • Price per dive from 1,350 BHT / 36 € / £ 34 / $ 43 (without rental gear)
  • Price per dive from 1,155 BHT / 31 € / £ 29 / $ 37 (as in a 10-dive package)
  • Price for the Open Water course from 11,850 BHT / 320 € / £ 296 / $ 379

2 – The Philippines

Diving Moalboal The Philippines - - cheapest diving destinations

A bit less explored than Thailand, The Philippines are yet one of the most affordable countries to travel to in South East Asia thanks to its extensive network of ferries and jeepney (local bus). The density of dive spots across the country is such that you will need more than one trip to see everything. Scuba divers visiting the Philippines either focus on Manilla area including Palawan and Anilao, or the Visayas Islands including Cebu and Malapascua (diving in Malapascua became famous thanks to its thresher sharks encounters).

While its top dive site, the Tubbataha Reefs, a UNESCO marine heritage site, requires an expensive liveaboard to be explored, places such as Moalboal and Panglao offers low-key but paradise-like dive resorts on the beach with some of the lowest diving rate I’ve seen around the world.

Prices in Moalboal

  • Price per dive from 1,100 PHP / 19 € / £ 18 / $ 23 (with rental gear included)
  • Price per dive from 950 PHP / 16 € / £ 15 / $ 20 (without rental gear)
  • Price per dive from 850 PHP / 14 € / £ 14 / $ 18 (as in a 10-dive package)
  • Price for the Open Water course from 14,999 PHP / 255 € / £ 240 / $ 315

Prices in Malapascua

  • Price per dive from 1,580 PHP / 31€ / £ 29 / $ 38 (with rental gear included)
  • Price per dive from 1,300 PHP / 26 € / £ 24 / $ 32 (without rental gear)
  • Price per dive from 1,170 PHP / 30 € / £ 28 / $ 37 (as in a 10-dive package)
  • Price for the Open Water course from 18,000 PHP / 315 € / £ 296 / $ 389

3 – Indonesia

Diving in Bali Indonesia - cheapest diving destinations

For many scuba divers, Indonesia is the number one destination in the world. With world-class diving spots such as Raja Ampat and Wakatobi National Park, passionate divers and enthusiast underwater photographers flock from all over the world, even if prices in these places are not the cheapest.

However, Indonesia being such a vast country from Sumatra to West Papua, there are many places which offer fantastic dive sites and affordable prices such as Bali and the Gili Islands. Even Komodo National Park, a UNESCO marine heritage site, can be explored for less than most liveaboards on day trips.

While being one of the most popular tourist destinations with world-class dive sites, diving in Bali remains surprisingly affordable. It’s especially true in Tulamben area, known for the Liberty shipwreck, which is mostly about shore diving. In areas like Nusa Lembongan, where longer boat rides are necessary, the price of a dive is obviously higher but still extremely affordable. On top of this, there are so many fun things to do in Bali that you can only spend unforgettable holidays there.

In Komodo, the day trips leave early morning Labuan Bajo harbour for a two or three-tank dive trip in the waters of the national park. Obviously, these boats can only take you to a tiny part of the park, but it’s already fascinating. And did I mention that you will also have the opportunity to meet a Komodo dragon at the surface interval?

Prices in Tulamben

  • Price per dive from 300,000 IDR / 18 € / £ 15 / $ 21 (with rental gear included)
  • Price per dive from 250,000 IDR / 15 € / £ 13 / $ 18 (without rental gear)
  • Price per dive from 271,500 IDR / 16 € / £ 14 / $ 19 (as in a 10-dive package)
  • Price for the Open Water course from 3,100,000 IDR / 186 € / £ 155 / $ 217

Prices in Nusa Lembongan

  • Price per dive from 425,000 IDR / 26 € / £ 21 / $ 30 (with rental gear included)
  • Price per dive from 425,000 IDR / 26 € / £ 21 / $ 30 (without rental gear)
  • Price per dive from 342,900 IDR / 21 € / £ 17 / $ 24 (as in a 10-dive package)
  • Price for the Open Water course from 3,750,000 IDR / 225 € / £ 188 / $ 263

Prices in Labuan Bajo (Komodo National Park)

  • Price per dive from 550,000 IDR / 33 € / £ 28 / $ 39 (with rental gear included)
  • Price per dive from 550,000 IDR / 33 € / £ 28 / $ 39 (without rental gear)
  • Price per dive from 550,000 IDR / 33 € / £ 28 / $ 39 (as in a 10-dive package)
  • Price for the Open Water course from 5,500,000 IDR / 330 € / £ 275 / $ 385

4 – Egypt

Diving in Dahab Egypt - cheapest diving destinations

Even before becoming a certified Open Water diver, I knew the waters of the Red Sea offered some of the most fabulous coral reefs and spectacular marine life in the world. No wonder why, after only 3 to 4 hours of flying from Europe, only 6 months after my certification, I was travelling to Sharm-el-Sheikh, Egypt! Egypt is all about liveaboards diving for most European divers, especially in the Brothers, Daedalus and Elphinstone Islands, which made diving in the Red Sea famous.

But if you are looking for affordable scuba diving day trips, you have to know that the South Sinai include some of the most famous spots in the Red Sea, such as the Dahab Blue Hole, Ras-el-Mohammed National Park and the Thistlegorm submarine wreck. With budget diving camps and mostly shore diving, Dahab in the South Sinai, and Marsa Alam in the south of Upper Egypt, became budget travellers’ favourites.

  • Price for the Open Water course from 325 € / £ 301 / $ 385

5 – Honduras

Diving in Utila Honduras - cheapest diving destinations

This small country of Central America might be mostly known internationally by scuba divers thanks to the Bay Islands on its Caribbean shore. While the island of Roatan became a place for scuba divers looking for a luxury dive resort, the island of Utila became the hotspot for backpackers in love with scuba diving and whale sharks! Over the years, Utila became for Central America what Koh Tao is for South-East Asia, a scuba diving school island.

Prices in Utila

  • Price per dive from 27 € / £ 25 / $ 32 (with rental gear included)
  • Price per dive from 21 € / £ 20 / $ 25 (without rental gear)
  • Price per dive from 25 € / £ 23 / $ 30 (as in a 10-dive package)
  • Price for the Open Water course from 190 € / £ 176 / $ 225

6 – Belize

Diving in Caye Caulker Belize - cheapest diving destinations

Another tiny country of Central America, right below Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Belize is mainly famous for scuba divers. This is due to its Great Blue Hole, the largest in the world with a diameter of 200 m! While most scuba divers looking for a luxury vacation will stay on Ambergris Caye, backpackers touring Central America gather in Caye Caulker. While the day trips to the Great Blue Hole became increasingly expensive over the years, diving in the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, located between Caye Caulker and Ambergris, remains affordable.

Prices in Caye Caulker

  • Price per dive from 42 € / £ 39 / $ 50 (with rental gear included)
  • Price per dive from 42 € / £ 39 / $ 50 (without rental gear)
  • Price per dive from 42 € / £ 39 / $ 50 (as in a 10-dive package)
  • Price for the Open Water course from 338 € / £ 313 / $ 400

7 – Mexico

Diving in Playa del Carmen Mexico - cheapest diving destinations

This is maybe one of the most exciting diving destinations in the world due to the variety of diving adventures you can live from one ocean to the other. In Baja California, on the Pacific shore, it is all about encounters with large pelagic species such as whales and sharks, while in the Yucatan Peninsula, on the Caribbean shore, you can mix reef diving with cenote diving, the famous Mayan underwater caverns.

While the prices have increased a lot since my visit in 2010, Mexico remains an affordable diving destination, mainly if you stay around Playa del Carmen or Tulum. In Quintana-Roo, one of the three states of the Yucatan Peninsula, you can also dive in Cozumel Island and Isla Mujeres, next to Cancun.

Prices in Playa del Carmen

  • Price per dive from 25 € / £ 23 / $ 30 (with rental gear included)
  • Price per dive from 25 € / £ 23 / $ 30 (without rental gear)
  • Price per dive from 25 € / £ 23 / $ 30 (as in a 10-dive package)
  • Price for the Open Water course from 286 € / £ 265 / $ 339

8 – Spain

Diving in Tenerife Spain - cheapest diving destinations

Time to talk about diving in Europe, in Southern Europe, to be specific! I usually amaze people when I say scuba diving in Europe can be some of the cheapest in the world. You can scuba dive everywhere in Europe, but Spain offers the widest choice in terms of diving spots with some of the most affordable prices.

Diving hotspots in Spain’s mainland are mostly around marine protected areas such as the Medes Islands in Costa Brava, Catalonia, or Cabos de Palos in Costa Calida, Murcia. However, let’s not forget the Canary Islands also belong to Spain. In Tenerife, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria, El Hierro and La Palma, scuba diving is full of underwater surprises with volcanic landscape and pelagic marine species encounters.

Prices in l’Estartit (Medes Islands)

  • Price per dive from 42 € / £ 39 / $ 50 (with rental gear included)
  • Price per dive from 30 € / £ 28 / $ 36 (without rental gear)
  • Price per dive from 37 € / £ 34 / $ 44 (as in a 10-dive package)
  • Price for the Open Water course from 345 € / £ 319 / $ 409

Prices in Tenerife

  • Price per dive from 37 € / £ 34 / $ 44 (with rental gear included)
  • Price per dive from 25 € / £ 25 / $ 32 (without rental gear)
  • Price per dive from 35 € / £ 32 / $ 41 (as in a 10-dive package)
  • Price for the Open Water course from 380 € / £ 352 / $ 450

9 – Malta

Diving in Malta - cheapest diving destinations

When discussing scuba diving in Europe, it’s impossible to forget Malta. It must be Europe’s #1 diving destination thanks to its warm waters and the shipwreck program conducted since the 1970s. Most dive sites in Malta and Gozo are accessible from the shore. Hence you usually take a van to go scuba diving in the Maltese Islands. This unique situation makes the prices cheaper for the greater pleasure of European divers who love the shipwrecks or the famous Gozo Blue Hole.

Prices in Malta

  • Price per dive from 37 € / £ 34 / $ 44 (with rental gear included)
  • Price per dive from 30 € / £ 28 / $ 36 (without rental gear)
  • Price per dive from 29 € / £ 27 / $ 34 (as in a 10-dive package)
  • Price for the Open Water course from 315 € / £ 292 / $ 373

10 – France

Diving Porquerolles France

My latest destination on this list might be the most underrated scuba diving destinations in Europe. Why? It might be because people think prices will be high in France, and international divers are afraid they won’t find service in English. Well, prices are definitely among the best in Europe and now most scuba diving centres, especially in the south of France, have English speaking instructors. With two superb marine national parks, Port-Cros & Porquerolles and the Calanques between Marseille and Cassis, diving in France offers surprisingly incredible value.

Prices in Marseille

  • Price per dive from 50 € / £ 45 / $ 58 (with rental gear included)
  • Price per dive from 35 € / £ 31 / $ 41 (without rental gear)
  • Price per dive from 31 € / £ 28 / $ 36 (as in a 10-dive package)
  • Price for the Open Water course from 410 € / £ 370 / $ 479
