Des mises à l'eau: Hyères (Port d'Hyères, 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 ou du port de Bormes, situé sur la commune de La Favière (très belle mise à l'eau avec parking pour voitures et remorques)éventuellement mais assez long du port de Cavalaire où se trouve une très vaste mise à l'eau avec parking pour les voitures les remorques doivent se ranger au stade.

Deux bouées d'amarrage pour les bateaux de part et d'autre de la pointe
Plongée réalisée les jours de fort Mistral quand votre bateau a pu traverser, et l'après midi quand vous avez plongé profond sur les épaves ou la Gabinière
Le courant est un peu moins fort que sur la Gabinière!!
Longue arrête rocheuse en prolongement de la pointe une deuxième arrête se trouve plus à l'ouest et plus profond
Mérous dont l'un lors de ma dernière plongée semblait de toute évidence habitué à être nourri!! Quel dommage!!!! La réglementation du Parc de Port Cros s'applique...
Gorgones bleues et blanches, nacres, dentis, mulets Etc....
C'est à cette pointe que se trouvait Gros Câlins: mérou qui habitué à être nourri se baladait parmi les plongeurs Malheureusement il a été tiré il y a une dizaine d'années par un imbécile!!!!
