“Tres bon pour les Francophones, and us Anglos aussi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2013

Plongee France is located at the centre of Haad Salad, alongside Haad Salad Villas, and they offer dive lessons and dive trips (snorkellers welcome as well). We went along to snorkel with the rest of the group (mostly divers) at Sail Rock, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

The day trip commenced at 9am at the dive shop, with great espresso courtesy of Laurent, the manager. Everyone was equipped with their diving or snorkelling gear, then transported to Chaloklum, where we got on the dive boat.

The skipper and 1st mate were very friendly and competent, and looked after the safety and comfort of the passengers, as did the Plongee crew. The Plongee staff are all French, but most speak very good English as well. We did not feel left out at any point; despite being anglophone snorkellers, we were treated as well as everyone else. We don't know much about the diving side of things, but it appeared that there is a good duty of care here. During the 90 minute crossing to Sail Rock, Laurent and crew went over details we all needed to know, and showed us a guidebook of sea creatures we might encounter, from the ever-popular whale sharks to venomous nasties and others to be careful of.

Fresh fruit, coffee, tea and biscuits, and unlimited drinking water were available, and the inclusive lunch was plentiful and quite tasty.

We got back to the dive shop about 4:30pm. All in all, it was a very pleasant day, and we would recommend Plongee France to everyone.
