The Club

The diving club “Amédée Diving Club” is the first diving center in Nouméa. We take you to the day, on the islet Amédée within a marine reserve near the coral reef.

The day is as follows:

Appointment between 7:00 and 7:15 at the cottage in Port Moselle, once the administrative formalities are completed, we embark on the boat to join the island Amédée.

After 30 to 40 minutes of sailing, depending on weather conditions, we disembark on the pontoon and go to the clubhouse. Once there, one of the instructors takes care of a general briefing on the course of the day and then distributes your diving equipment.

Once the material has been distributed and the teams are composed, we go back again to equip the diving blocks and a specific briefing for our first dive. Once the briefing is done and the spot reached, we equip ourselves and start the dive.

About an hour later, we emerge and return to the islet for a snack and a debriefing while waiting for the fish lunch prepared by our chef. Follows nap or walk until 14h then we go back on the boat to, again, a specific briefing to the upcoming dive and then carrying out the said dive.

Back on the island, a snack awaits us again with tea, hot and iced, and fruit. We debrief the dive, the day then, after a rest, we return on the boats to return to Noumea.

Faré du club sur l'ilôt Amédée

C'est ici que l'équipe briefe, débriefe et distribue le matériel de plongée mais c'est également l'endroit ou les plongeurs prennent leur déjeuner entre les plongées et les collations après chaque plongées. Un moment de repos et de farniente bien mérité
