Diving in Djibouti-Plongée à Djibouti
Welcome to our Underwater Paradise!
Djibouti is a fantastic place to dive. From beginner to experienced divers. With 195 miles of coastline, we are always finding unnamed spots to dive and explore. With an abundance of marine life, whalesharks, shipwrecks and pristine coral reefs. Come dive with us for an underwater adventure you will be hard pressed to match anywhere else in the world.
Would you like to try diving, we can teach you!
Fun Dives & PADI Courses
Let the fun begin !
Djibouti lies at the meeting of the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean, arguably the two most beautiful tropical seas in the world.
The reef and wrecks overflow with marine life and the beautiful spectacle is enhanced by the warm waters that make wetsuits optional. The water temperature and general lack of currents makes for easy conditions for divers just beginning their training.
And for the experienced divers we have plenty of options to choose from. Dive between the continental plates or go back in time and visit the legends of the Seven Brothers !
