Le Sec du Langoustier

Le Sec du Langoustier, a deep water pinnacle, is located off Porquerolles fort, to the west of the island. The dive starts around 18m, and goes down to 25m on the west side or 36m on the east side. The rock spreads out over a hundred meters with lots of cracks and ledges all along, where conger and moray eels, crayfish, octopuses and groupers have found shelter. Occasionally there are a some pelagic fish swimming by, like schools of barracudas! On the reef, check out the red gorgonian fans and the dactylographs. Beautiful!
