Diving center in Mataró
Come to our sustainable diving center only 30 km from Barcelona and enjoy the Mediterranean sea.
MedDive Mataró is only 30km away from Barcelona and well connected, eaither with public transports (bus and train) as for private transportation (we have areas to park close to our dive center). Train Station Mataró R1, Bus Barcelona-Mataró E11.1 Moventis, Linea 1 Mataró Bus, 553 Sagalés Argentona-Mataró.
All our dives are in different sites of the “Mataró Bars” (also called the “Underwater roman road”). These so-called bars are natural rocky structures at different depths (from 7 to 40m deep) and parallel to the coast, so adapted to all diving levels. As they are surrounded by sand with Posidonia, the rocky bars enhance a great deal of diversity: moray eels, congers, seahorses, barracudas, lobsters, butterfly rays, Eagle rays, Spanish dancers, nudibranchs, and lots of fish!
A great number of our dives are included in the Special Conservation Zone for Posidonia oceanica meadows, a Mediterranean endemic plant, that encounters a high level of biodiversity among their leafs and rhizomes, while “cleaning” the CO2 from our planet and capturing sediments.
We are the Spanish reference of Reef Check Med Spain thanks to our facilities, courses quality and philosophy PADI 5 Star IDC Center.
. In all courses we teach and insist on how to properly respect the environment, as this is very important to us.
At head of the MedDive team you will find Carla Huete, PhD in Marine Biology who guides our route: Sustainable headquarters and facilities, sustainable and slow diving, participating in several environmental projects like Biosphere, PADI GoGreen, ReefCheckMed, Seawatchers, and more…
In addition, Carla always gives biological information on all dives and resolves any doubts that may arise apart from advising guides, books or experts related to the sector that may be of interest.
