Croisette, La Carrière Vodecée

Located near Philippeville in Belgium, you'll discover the charming hamlet of Vodecée. Nestled alongside Vodelée and La Roche Fontaine, there awaits a beloved dive site known as La Croisette. Formerly a quarry that extracted red marble, this site now offers an underwater paradise for divers.

In the Vodecée quarry, divers will encounter a vibrant ecosystem teeming with aquatic life. Large schools of carp thrive in the shallows near the cafeteria, accompanied by pike, perch, catfish, goby, tench, trout, swan mussels, and sturgeon.

Exploring the depths of La Croisette reveals a maximum depth of 27 meters, with visibility typically reaching around 8 meters. The water level of the site is influenced by recent rainfall, creating an ever-changing environment. As you navigate through the water, you'll encounter an array of intriguing objects left behind by the quarry workers. From rails and tools to even a toilet, these remnants offer a glimpse into the quarry's past. The walls of the quarry harbor hidden treasures within cracks and cavities, including smaller objects like a statue of mariage, a mirror, and scattered inscriptions.

To access the water, divers must descend along a small dirt road to a platform where they can execute a controlled jump into the depths below. The water beckons, reaching a depth of 25 meters beneath the platform. For those seeking an exhilarating and immersive diving experience, La Croisette is best suited for advanced divers.
