The Medes Island Marine Reserve it's formed by a group of islands located just in front of the village. The reserve is characterised by its bustling quantity of marine life, mainly by the large groupers which can be found at shallow depths.These great animals approach divers fearlessly with curiosity, wreathed in clouds of breams, with eagle rays scampering about the bottom amid small schools of barracudas. Divers will awe at underwater caves and sea walls teeming with gorgonians. These conditions, unequalled in all the Western Mediterranean, makes the Montgrí's coast and the Medes Islands one of the best places for any diver.
During the Discover Scuba Diving or Baptism experience you'll learn how to use the immersion equipment in shallow waters and you'll receive a quick and easy introduction to everything that is needed to explore the underwater world. You'll perform a basic knowledge practice in a swimming pool, guided and supervised every moment by an instructor. After that, once you have experimented for the first time what breathing with the autonomous equipment, you'll take a boat to perform your first lesson in open waters, in a quiet and shallow zone (between 6 and 10 meters) and you'll enjoy your first immersion during 20 minutes with an instructor by your side.
The immersion will be done in a point of the Montgrí coast declared Natural Reserve.
There's nothing like breathing underwater for the first time. After a few minutes you'll realize how easy scuba diving is.
The courses and baptisms we offer are from the PADI school, the most international school. We offer all levels, from baptism for children to the first professional course.
