Cave diving is a popular specialty in France, particularly in the region of Dordogne, where there are some amazing caves and passages with fabulous crystal clear waters.
Emergence du Russel is the most famous cave system of the area, which reaches depth of over 70m. But besides this famous cave site, the North-Eastern region of France has many other caves with typical blue pool resurgences, some caves are completely flooded and some contain sumps that break up the passages and lead to cathedral domes. France really has caves to suit every level of diver!
The underwater visibility can often change in France but generally ranges from 10 to 30 metres. The best time to go scuba diving is between May and November where you can expect water temperatures in the region of 20+ degrees Celsius along the exposed west coast
