ACTIVITIES

The underwater trail

You want to discover the riches of the sea bottom. It’s possible and accessible for everyone thanks to the Cassis underwater trail.
Located below the Promenade des Lombards, its two versions (supervised or on-your-own) are suitable for everyone, whatever their level and expectations, young or not so young, beginners or experienced divers.
 
The swim consists of 4 stages marked out by buoys and a workshop over a distance of 200 to 300 m taking 20 to 40 minutes to complete. The buoys simply mark out the discovery stages. If you want to discover all the riches you must use a submersible guide and the activity equipment.

The yachtsman’s commandments

  • I respect the sea and rivers, I do not land on protected sites, I limit my fishing to the authorised species and sizes, I watch the animals without touching or bothering them.
  • Before anchoring, I determine the nature of the sea bottom to avoid damaging it.
  • Preferably I use mooring buoys.
  • I sort my household waste in the containers and leave my toxic waste, whether solid or liquid, at the harbour waste collection centre. I use the harbour’s toilet facilities.
  • I empty my lavatory water tank at the sewage stations. I use detergents that are the most respectful of the environment.
  • I make sure that all maintenance operations (boat, material, equipment) are carried out in a way that is respectful of the environment.
  • When decanting any potentially polluting liquids I handle them with care.
  • I respect the tranquillity of the site and its surroundings.
