Des mises à l'eau sur Carqueiranne, Le Pradet, Hyères (Port d'Hyères,La Tour Fondue,le port du Niel et La Madrague) Attention La Tour Fondue est souvent interdite à la mise à l'eau pour raison de sécurité le plan incliné serait glissant!!!!mais je n'ai pas d'information car je parts du Port de La Capte
Certains bateaux partent de La Londe les Maures (port de Miramar) il y a une super mise à l'eau souvent payante mais aussi un très beau parking à remorques et à voitures. Beaucoup de monde le soir pour sortir les bateaux il faut s'organiser et être à plusieurs pour faire la queue des voitures et des bateaux( parfois 6 à 7 bateaux)!!!
Si vous avez des informations faites nous le savoir!!!
Possibilité de partir du Lavandou certains viennent de très très loin pour voir cette épave!!

Cargo pinardier de 78m de long et 12m de large
Il coule le 10 novembre 1945, c'est une épave mythique de Méditerranée
les plongeurs la connaissent de nom!!! et souhaitent la visiter
L'épave est en bon état mais elle a perdu son mat en 2000, ce mat remontait à 25m et permettait de faire de superbes photos!!
Souvent du courant surtout le lendemain d'un coup de Mistral!!
Il y a souvent un bidon de 5 litres qui balise l'épave.
Les week end il y a beaucoup de plongeurs, et de barges à plongeurs qui larguent 25 à 30 plongeurs!!
Prévoir une sécurité efficace sur votre bateau car il y a souvent des incidents de plongée, voire des accidents Vous serez amené à porter assistance à des plongeurs d'autres bateaux!!! C'est une obligation et tradition sur cette épave, les plongeurs ne sont pas au niveau et il y a souvent des problèmes ( dérive, essoufflements, etc...) et les bateaux ne sont pas très manœuvrant dans une forêt de parachutes!!
Mérous, Dentis, Sars, les classiques sur une épave....
