Our opinion on Antidote Plongée:
On the island of Guadeloupe, in the French West Indies, there exists a remedy, the ideal medication towards a successful diving vacation: the well-named Antidote Plongée! Located in Port-Louis, this friendly dive centre is aiming for absolute comfort, nothing less. It comes as a real breath of fresh air (and oxygen) on the dive scene in the Caribbean!
It all started in 2012 when Joelle and Jean Michel decided to give up their job in metropolitan France, and turn their passion into a successful business... Having spent a few diving holidays in the area, they were already familiar with the culture in general and the dive sites in particular; still, they buddied up with François, an experienced, local dive instructor.
Their main challenge was to switch from a lifetime of associative commitment in France to a structure that would resemble them, their personality and idea of diving: we can say that the success is complete! Antidote Plongée stands as the soution to all your problems (really!), thanks to an extreme flexibility, a completory and friendly staff, and an everpresent, radiant smile. The warm welcome is an art they master... actually it's more than that: it's a philosophy! The whole centre is set up so you feel comfortable, at home.
Another Antidote trademark is that above all you have a good time! The dive staff is passionate about what they do and they pass it on wonderfully, the preference is set onto a long instead of a deep dive, and the groups are kept as small as possible... for your pleasure! The whole logistical process is also rather practical, which is perfect for families or senior divers. All the range of PADI and CMAS courses are available; the introductory divers will have the chance to get very close to seahorses during their first dive! Classy isn't it?
Groups (up to 30 divers) are pretty well fitted here, since Antidote Plongée never does things half-way! All the briefs are adapted to their audience and split between safety and environmental procedures. That sure is the Longitude 181 Nature influence!
Underwater, Antidote Plongée takes you to non crowded sites with nice drop-offs, arches and caves. If you feel like sharpening your underwater photography skills or get trained at it, Jean Michel will be happy to oblige! It's all about pleasure and comfort, we told you...
