Pytheas, Port-Vendres

This dive site, conveniently located just outside Port-Vendres in France, is incredibly popular among both beginner and advanced divers. It offers the unique opportunity to explore a wreck, an arch, and rocky faults all in a single dive. Despite its proximity to the coast and its shallow depth of 15m, the wreck still holds remnants such as the boiler, stern, numerous ribs, rudder, and a distinctive anchorage.

Divers can expect to encounter a diverse array of marine life during their exploration. Castagnoles, moray eels, octopus, cuttlefish, capons, sea urchins, starfish, sea cucumbers, conger eels, oblades, flabellines, and dories are just a few examples of the fascinating creatures that inhabit this site.

With a visibility of 7m, divers will have a clear view of their surroundings as they navigate through the underwater landscape. For more experienced divers, heading north will lead to a dry spot between 16m and 24m, with a line installed by Olivier of plongeeavecolivier.fr guiding them to a vertically placed anchor.

Whether you are a beginner looking for an exciting dive or an advanced diver seeking a new adventure, this dive site near Port-Vendres is sure to provide an unforgettable underwater experience.
