News for May….lots going on!

Lots going on at Diamond Diving at the moment.

On the 7th May we have a full Open Water Course starting for which there remains one place.

On the 12th May we have a Project Aware underwater cleanup at one of our most frequently used confined water training sites off the Cap d’Antibes.  This is nearly full but there is a standby list in case anyone drops out so please let us know if you are interested. We highly recommend all divers to create their own My Ocean account on the Project Aware website at  Here you can also download for free the excellent book Our World, Our Water which has a wealth of information on the world’s seas and oceans.

There is an Open Water Referral (for those who have already completed theory and confined water training elsewhere) running on the 15th and 16th of May and we have two spaces left.    

Two places are still up for grabs for the Discover REBREATHERS day we are running in conjunction with Jean-Francois Andre of HippoConsulting.  For €80 you get one of the best known techincal diving instructors in France supervising and guiding an introductory experience at a 2:1 ratio with roughly 25 minutes in the water.  Let us know if you would like to participate.

On the Instructor Development side of things we have an IDC running from 27th May to 7th June with the exam in Cannes on the 8th and 9th of June. We have a couple of places still, so let us know if you are interested,

We also have a full 10 day intensive DiveMaster course running from 25th May to 4th June.

We are also really pleased to annouce that are Aqualung ProShop is now open for business so we can help you with all of your equipment purchase needs.

The water is warming up nicely and the great weather is on it’s way so we look forwards to seeing you in the South of France soon.      

Project Aware, Next IDC, Aqualung ProShop, Discover Rebreathers Day and much much more….

So, loads of news to share with you all.  The water is warming up nicely on the Cote d’Azur and is a balmy 15 degrees at the moment.  The last few dives have revealed loads of life including Nudibranches, huge schools of Sardines interpersed with the Damselfish, Octopi, Morays, Scorpionfish, Blennies, Sar…really encouraging for quality of diving for the forthcoming season.

We have a Project Aware Underwater Clean Up coming on Sunday 12th May and the following Sunday (19th) we have a « Discover Rebreathers » Day with Jean-Francois Andre of HippoConsulting, one of the leading Techincal Diving Instructors in France.  There are a couple of places left, so please let us know if you’d like to participate.



Our new Aqualung ProShop is now in place so we’re obviously more than happy to advise on the best equipment choices for our clients,  if we don’t have something in stock it can be ordered in and delivered normally with the matter of a few working days.

The next PADI Instuctor Development Course starts on May 27th and we have one place left.  This will be a bi-lingual IDC with the lead language as English but any necessary and complementary explanations in French are available, of course.  The IDC will be almost immediately followed by a three day Specialty Instructor Training Course starting on the Tuesday after the Instructor Examination.  For more information about our Professional level PADI training courses please e-mail Alex on
