Took kids to experience scuba for the first time and could not be happier. They arranged a charming instructor who spoke English, made the kids feel confident and assured. We loved every minute of it and would recommend to all.

I can only agree with the previous good reviews. Very experienced team, for each experience level there are very well trained instructors, with good mood, very humorous and friendly. The dive sites are also excellent and enjoyable for every level. Great wreck dives and beautiful scenic dives with flora, fauna and a lot of fish. Absolutely recommendable, have fun! I’ll come back!!

It was incredible to dive with the CAP Port-Vendres for 10 days at the end of September; a perfect complement to 15 days of mostly technical (CMAS 2 & 3* training) dives at CAP Trébeurden (with whom they are absolutely not associated). Despite being only funded 3 years ago, CAP Port-Vendres is run like a very mature business. Cédric & Juju are certainly not beginners in the matter. They have beautiful dive sites and we enjoyed every single one of our dives, diving in autonomy was great. The wrecks were awesome to visit, be prepared for those more technical dives (40m+), but with 3 dives a day on the schedule, your experience will still be great if you can't visit those depths. Pretty much zero hefting required with their organization and very very comfortable dive center. Since the team often does wrecks at or below 40m as well as in-land cave diving they are very well versed in technical diving using side-mount, closed circuit (rebreather/adjustable ppO2), Nitrox/O2 decompression, and it was pretty interesting to witness them teach and use those techniques. IIRC they even provide EAN32 for free. We can't wait to be back and try our luck again for the best wreck diving conditions and unbelievably huge lobsters.

I dives with these guys twice. They are fine people, kind and responsive. They also speak English which makes communication much more easy. Given the over all good organization and pleasantness of the dive masters I would have given a 'very good' were it not that there were two things that were not so pleasant that almost made me give a 'poor'. - the first is that one of the dives was not in the marine park (the first dive). This was not a good dive. Sight was bad and the marine life was not good at all. Though my divagates were very nice, the dive itself was no good. My second dive was in het marine park which is only about 20 min further away, but made a difference of day and night with the other site. So why not dive in the marine park all the time? - the second not so pleasant thing was that we ran out of petrol on the boat and were floating around for almost an hour. Apparently the fuel gauge did not work well and not for the first time. That does not give me a very professional impression.

I went there for a 5 days Technical Diving course and deep dives. Impressive, Professional and Knowledgable staff & organization. Reliable and quick gas blending. Well equiped boats, full safety procedures. Cherry on the cake: friendly people! You will learn a lot, requestion yourself, (and particularly) if you already are a dive leader or dive instructor. For sure one of the Technical diving center "place-to-be" in Southern Europe in the coming years , if not already... Regarding recreational diving, as far as i have seen organization and sharing boat to dive sites, also perfect, and step by step learning.
