L'Orient, wreck

Beautiful wreck dive at a maximum depth of 43m. The L'Orient was sunk as an artificial reef off the coast of Flic en Flac. Unfortunately not a place that is visited too often, because of its depth but only rather experienced divers accessible.

As the wreck is rarely visited and we are the only diving school that visits it at all, it is always good for a surprise.
