Do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the GPS coordinates (or screenshot). In the same way, if you see erroneous information (ports, dive sites etc.) do not hesitate to send it back to us. Thanks for your help!
What data is included in the Premium version?
You can download the SHOM nautical charts (update: June 2019) in the French Mediterranean and 230 high-definition bathymetric slabs focused on rocky spots (mainly located in the PACA region between Marseille and Nice, and in Corsica (West and South); some slabs are present in the Occitan region).

You can also start and stop the recording of your route, measure a distance, use a prediction arrow.
What does the "Camera" symbol on the map mean?
Hundreds of points represented by a “Camera” symbol show you georeferenced photographs of landscapes and underwater species illustrated by Laurent Ballesta. You have the possibility to view these photos in small or large format.
