Diving in the Medes Islands

The diving destination par excellence

The Illes Medes maritime reserve is a genuine paradise for divers from all over the world. The amount and variety of its underwater fauna and flora, which have been protected for more than 15 years, combined with the impeccable service of the centres authorised to dive there, make the Illes Medes a reference destination, essential in any diver's logbook, with emblematic dives such as La Vaca, Cavall Bernat and Pota de Llop.

CAMPING LES MEDES Paratge Camp de l'Arbre s/n , L'Estartit (17258)

All our dives are by boat and within the Parc Natural del Montgrí i les Illes Medes. We limit the number of divers per trip to be able to dive quietly and with comfort, both on the boat and underwater. And in addition, we do two or three small groups, accompanied by one of us, to dive between fish... and not between divers! And all this with the idea of offering you a RESPECTFUL diving, about the environment and about divers themselves.

With the warm clear waters it is a paradise for the photographer or videographer. Depths generally are from 10 or 15m at most sites down to depths well in excess of 50m, so divers of all levels can be satisfied. There are in the islands many beautiful and safe caves and drop-offs which must be seen to be believed!

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.

OCEANSUB-Estartit is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the Costa Brava.

With OCEANSUB-Estartit you will always find the perfect dive: Wrecks, like Reggio; caves like La Vaca, El Dofí, the Pedrosa, Ferriola... and much more; impressive walls of gorgonias like the ones awaiting you in Furió Fito and Canons de Tamariu. Also we accompany you to the Medes Islands.

Remember: we work with small groups. This gives us the flexibility to adapt the dives to your needs, go to areas that are not frequently visited or are only apt for small numbers of divers.
