We enjoyed diving at DIVING CALVI a Piaghja very much. The organisation with the dive center was very easy going from the beginning on and our teachers were very friendly and nice. They showed us several beautiful dive spots! We really had a good time and would definitely do it again! We would recommend the school to everyone who wants to do get their open water certificate and enjoy a nice vibe 🤘🏼
debriefing with cookies and juice - perfect :)

I had an excellent experience with Diving Calvi. The communication to arrange the dives beforehand was very good. The shop has excellent equipment and top notch dive masters . The staff was very friendly and made for a fun, safe experience. . There was a pre dive discussion of what to expect on the dive and a post dive explanation to discuss what we saw on the dive. The B17 dive is amazing and a must do when diving in Calvi. . The dive masters also gave excellent tips to help me a better diver, which I appreciated. This is a great dive shop that I recommend without hesitation.

We had a great time at the Diving Calvi a Piaghja. We dived at great sites with lots of sea life and were especially impressed with the B17 wreck. Sarah and Teddy are a great team, along with all the other team members! All our wishes and requests were met without any problems. A special thanks also goes to our dive guide Jef for the great guidance under water. We would recommend the dive center to anyone and would love to come again.

I booked a refresher with an instructor as I hadn't dived for a while, however on the day I was put with a PADI group (of 3) completing their final day. The initial safety checks were good before boarding the boat - however in the water I was very rushed to descend.
Unfortunately I had a squeeze making it impossible to go down and was unable to equalise my ears.
My issue is that the instructor put on far too much pressure to descend with little respite and on the third attempt I lost my equilibrium in the water. Which is an extremely unpleasant (and humbling) experience and is of course potentially very dangerous. (If I had panicked in the water it could have ended up much worse). I aborted the dive and was left to re-board the unstaffed boat.
Clearly the dive instructor was under pressure and seemed stressed to complete the PADI course and get back in time for the boat especially as there were several dive parties on the same boat.
The instructor did not follow up much with me to see how I was afterwards - instead I had to mention the discomfort to the Manager. (I also saw a doctor afterwards to verify what damage there was to my ear drum).
However I never should have been put under such pressure to descend in the first place and this was not the refresher I had expected when I made the booking. Although I have dived a lot in the past I have never had such a bad experience - this was my first one and is real shame as it is a hobby I have loved over many years.
If I had known that it was going to be such a rush to descend I never would have booked at this dive centre and therefore cannot recommend it.

Hello Liam, We are sorry that your dive has not gone as you would have liked and take good notes of your comments. However, it is not in our interest to push divers down especially when they are in rehabilitation. During the dive, the monitor stayed in touch with you continuously without exceeding 1.5m depth to perform safety checks use. He did, at no time insist down deeper to the views of your ear problems, it is only one solution, not to dive and get back on the boat safely. It would have been possible if you had asked you to be alone with a monitor on a private boat, the price needs not be the same, I recall that we paid you half the price of the dive after your problem. Hope you do not stop you from this experience that a diver once lived in his life, and have it supported with humility, kind regards, Christopher and Sarah. Bonjour Liam, Nous sommes désolé que votre plongée ne se soit pas passé comme vous l'auriez souhaité et prenons bonnes notes de vos remarques. Cependant, il n'est pas dans notre intérêt de presser les plongeurs à descendre surtout lorsqu' ils sont en réadaptation. Lors de votre plongée, le moniteur est resté en contact avec vous continuellement sans dépasser 1,5m de profondeur afin d'effectuer les contrôles de securité d'usage. Il n'as, a aucun moment insister pour descendre plus profond aux vues de vos problèmes d'oreilles, il n'existe qu'une seule solution,de ne pas plonger et remonter sur le bateau en sécurité. Il vous aurait été possible si vous l'aviez demandé d'être seul avec un moniteur sur un bateau privé, le tarif n'étant toutefois pas le même, je rappel que nous vous avons remboursé la moitié du prix de la plongée suite à votre problème. En espérant que vous ne vous arrêtiez pas sur cette expérience que tout plongeur a vécu une fois dans sa vie, et qu'il as supporté avec humilité, cordialement, Christophe et Sarah.

Diving Calvi is a great club right on the beach in Calvi. The dives are professional, the staff are sharp, caring and fun, and the sites are beautiful! I have done explorations and training there, and I've never felt safer or enjoyed myself more than diving with Sarah & Christophe. I would recommend them for english speakers also!
The equipment is good quality and every effort is made to give divers a fabulous, safe, and fun experience.

I cannot praise this dive centre highly enough - outstanding. I am a reasonably experienced PADI Advanced OW diver whilst my two teenage children only qualified as OWs last year. Diving Calvi a Piaghja very successfully provided exactly what we all needed; I had some highly enjoyable and interesting guided diving whilst my childrens' confidence and skills were firmly cemented by the attention of some impressive, motivated and highly competent young dive masters, who also very much represented role models for the sport who have inspired my children to continue with their dive training in the future. The centre's administration is first class, their attention to each individual client's needs makes you feel valued as a customer, the pricing is very reasonable and all their equipment is excellent. I also think that the centre's beachside location helps to create its' friendly ambience, as opposed to being on the busy dockside downtown, where Calvi's other dive centres are. The dive sites were really the best that I have dived on in the Med - always lots of life to see and with some very varied underwater topography that my children found particularly exciting to dive through. We dived twice a day for four days and could easily have stayed on to do some more. I particularly enjoyed the B17 dive and the children enjoyed the submerged island at Revelatta. Whilst my wife has never really been inclined to give it a go despite having accompanied to a wide variety of dive centres worldwide over the last 20 yrs or so, all that changed for her at Diving Calvi a Piaghja this year when the team's clear professionalism, personable approachability and infectious enthusiasm finally persuaded her to have a crack with their three dive introductory package, with the result that she now wants to qualify in her own right next year- but only if she can do so at Diving Calvi a Piaghja. That says it all for me really - a professional and welcoming dive centre, I can highly recommend some diving experiences with Christophe, Sarah and their hard working team. Many thanks, we will certainly be back next year.

Before going to Calvi I looked up some of the local dive centres and this centre came up top. Their website was informative and a question I asked was quickly answered. I am an experienced diver and did two dives over two days, first was an afternoon dive on a local reef and the second was an early morning dive on the B-17. Both dives were great however I highly recommend the early morning dive as we were only divers on the B-17 and it was brilliant. The diver guides are knowledgeable and can speak a number of languages very well.
My girlfriend had never dived before and she booked onto a Baptism dive which is to 6m on the reef and gave her a taste of diving. She loved it and said again the dive guides were brilliant.
Overall the diving was great and would recommend this centre if you are looking to go diving in Calvi.

We were previously not sure whether to go for Scuba in April or not as its offseason but luckily the weather was good during easter and its life time experience for all of us (10 ppl).

Take aways:-

1- book the place in advance
2- teenagers are allowed to join as well
3- Check the route on google map as my tom-tom didn't took us till the place, we called them and they come to pick us up.
4- No medical certificate required for the first timers, just relax and the instructor will do everything for you.
5- Enjoy Coffee with Sara and her team once you are back :-)

Good people and it was worth for us to try Scuba in Corsica.

Best diving club on Calvi
I've tested several clubs on Calvi. And this is the best located (on the beach)
Best team (no trainee only diving instructor)
And funny spirit but always professionnal (check every year or medical advice )

Thanks to Sarah and Christophe. (The CEO'S)
