The diving center « Réunion Plongée – Div’in Run » is located in Saint-Leu, at a place called Pointe Des Châteaux. Created in 1995, it is run by par Xavier Malagié since 2013. Xavier is fluent in French and English.
The diving center has a large covered space opening on a large garden.
Facilities include: easy parking, class corner, terrace, rinsing water tank for diving gears, shower, toilets, coffee machine and fresh drinks. The equipment is carefully sorted and only wait for divers to get briny.
The place is friendly, convivial and amazing too as its structure is a large cyclone-proofed shed meant to resist against the stiff winds that stroke the coast in summer, from November to April.
We do everything to welcome you warmly: you will meet one another, a cup of coffee or a hot chocolate in hand. Getting to know one another before diving is fine and makes everyone comfortable. Everybody ready!? Let’s go!
Back to the diving center, we share our underwater experience in the shade of coconut trees. A glass in hand, we freely talk about what we have seen and felt.
From the port of Saint-Leu, « Réunion Plongée – Div’in Run » enables you to get to the most sought-after diving spots located on the West side of the Reunion Island in less than an hour, either off L’Etang-Salé or in Saint-Paul’s Bay.
We are offering you hundreds of undersea sites in accordance with your diving skills, your wishes and needs and… the weather. Saint-Leu’s bay is well sheltered from the wave swells and trade winds of the Indian Ocean. This makes diving possible 300 days a year.
The water is often cristal clear. We can see so well, so beautifully that we might even wonder whether there is water outside our diving masks. Strongs currents are relatively rare due to the geographical situation of the bay ; beginners enjoy wetting their flippers without any stress or apprehension.
Saint-Leu’s corral barrier is outstanding. It lies just beneath the sea surface and slowly go down following the curves drawn by the gulleys that stripe the Reunion Island coast.
There is something for every taste and for every level. Between 1- to 60-meter depth, every exploration is possible and exciting.
We dive mainly in the « Reunion Island Natural Marine Reserve » created in 2007 encompassing a surface of 3,500 hectares of sea.
