Phoceenne Diving open all year to introduce you to diving, improve...

Phoceenne Diving open all year to introduce you to diving, improve yourself, and explore the underwater world in the NATIONAL PARK CALANQUES

Our objective

Allow as many discover scuba diving, but also to share a unique experience in the Mediterranean in the Phocean City.

Our philosophy

We are a diving structure on a human scale, in contrast to the diving industry. Naturally environmentally friendly, we never take more than 10 people on board while we can board up to 14 people, this for your comfort and well being of all on board.

Scuba diving is a break, it's a special moment with the marine environment, a change of pace from the earthly life.

To satisfy you, and learn diving in the best conditions, we adapt our schedules, and locations of those dives when they are already beset by hordes of divers.

Our technical means

o Boat in the National Marine Park of the Creeks, from the Old Port to snorkel in Friuli, or in the Riou archipelago

o From the beach, in the heart of the National Park Land of the Creeks, just try diving with ease, we offer a minibus service from the Vieux Port to go to the south of the city (Creek of Samena and Callelongue) c is the opportunity to discover Marseille.

Erwan arranged two dives for my wife and I. We only had a couple of days in Marseille so we were very glad he could accommodate. My wife is very inexperienced, only snorkeling. I was excited for intermediate difficulty dives. He took on only one more very inexperienced diver and 2 other very experienced divers. The experienced divers were part... More

Did two dives with Erwan and I must say I was really impressed. The man is knowledgeable, very pleasant company, patient and just makes the whole thing really, really pleasant. It felt like diving with a long time friend. Small groups (two of three). I have not dived in the area before, so cannot compare Erwan's approach with others, but... More

We had an excellent time with Erwan in Marseille. We went on a combined trip. Some in our party wanted to go snorkling. Others went for a dive. It was great to go out of the harbour of Marseille in his boat. Erwan is very relaxed, an important feature in a dive instructor. The dive itself was nice and a... More

Hubby and I went for diving on 23rd May in Marseille during a long weekend. Amazing experience, relax and professional at the same time. Erwan and Patrick have years of experience and tons of hours under the water, and you want that for people you are diving with. Lot of sea life, small, medium and large fishes as well as... More

Erwan runs an excellent service. Very knowledgeable about the local area and good equipment. Good soul diving, very relaxing and a breath of fresh air compared to unusual commercial diving operators. Such a nice fellow and well deserving of his trip advisor reputation.

My family and I went on two dives with Erwan during our holiday; he was friendly and knowledgable, and even picked us up right outside our apartment in his boat. Throughout the whole dive experience, he guided us through the sites wonderfully, helped us with our gear and suits, and made this dive excursion the highlight of our stay in... More

Me and my friend went on a roadtrip in France last August, and one of our stops was in Marseille. We contacted Erwan of Plongee Phoceenne in order to do a "bapteme" or initial diving lesson. I e-mailed Erwan only 4 days in advance and he replied very quickly. Sometimes it isn't possible to respond very quick though, because the... More

Me and my partner were so excited about going out to dive around the calanques. However the location of the office was wrong. There was nothing there??? We were walking around for at least an hour trying to find it as it was close to our hotel but to no avail. I emailed them saying we couldn't find the office... More

Good morning, We beg your pardon for the disagreement. In fact, the address you mentioned is the head office and nobody is there during the day, because to dive we leave from Pointe Rouge Harbour by boat, or for dive Shore at Calanque of Samena or Callelongue,. About your mail , i have no mail from you and no message... More

If we are ever back in Marseille we will be in touch and will want to go diving again. We were a small group and were well looked after, with plenty if relaxed encouragement. Well worth the money.

I did my first dive 3 years ago by the beach, this time I went on the boat. Erwan is great, this was the second time I dive with him and I recommend him if you are thinking about doing scuba diving. He is very passionate about what he does so it was and gives you a lot of confidence... More
