The Reefs

The Petit Sec

At the end of the Cap Lardier, this rock mass is hidden a few centimeters under the surface and descends to 20 meters. All year long you will meet all sorts of underwater creatures, from rainbow wrass to groupers as well as nudibranch, conger and moray eels.

The Moyen Sec

This reef is a few yards from the Cap Lardier. The  «wall of the Moyen Sec » is home to the typical Mediterranean fauna, breams, groupers, conger and moray eels playing hide and seek between the gorgonians and the corraligen.

The Petit and Grand Quairolle

Two big rocks not far from the Cap Lardier welcome a profusion of flora and fauna : conger eels, moray eels, groupers, dentexs, barracudas in a grandiose scenery of walls and cracks covered with big gorgonians at depths ranging from 15 to 45 meters.

The Dattier

This vast rocky plateau to the west of Cavalaire presents a succession of cracks and flat stones between 5 and 18 meters, the small Mediterranean fish will be a delight for beginners.

The Gabinière and Sec de la Gabinière

The Port-Cros National Park benefits 100% from the « reserve » effect, the big groupers can be counted in dozens, the dentex and barracudas in hundreds. The wall of la Gabinière is accessible to all divers; it is a gigantic aquarium between 0 and 40 meters. The grandiose scenery of the “Sec” is reserved for experienced divers because of its greater depth and its location in the middle of currents.
