" STAKILI "

ALLOWING YOU TRUE CONTACTS WITH THE LOCAL POPULATION AND INCLUDING SOME "SURPRISE" EXCURSIONS FOR AMATEURS


We let others to choose to organize Seafaris for groups of 15 to 18 Divers.

We like TOO MUCH quietness and comfort, for ourselves, to offer that kind of Service to you.


We never board on the same boat more than Four to Six Passengers

- also because we know that some of them would prefer, some day, to sleep on the boat, in front of a desert island, or under a tent after a beach evening with the local folks, better than to be confine in the lobby of a small resort, obliged to support the miss advantages of being part of a big group.

The "ambience" of a small group drinking a glass of always help to "relax" during the always to short holidays, particularly when we can have a glass of "Mâcon" ou un "Cheverny", on the deck.

The Dive sites where we are bringing you are among the best on Earth.
You will be able to live very closely from the Nature and you will be able to meet new friend among the folk people we encounter.


Practically every night you will sleep in a nice island resort. Almost of your diners will be prepared in the restaurants of these hotels. But like almost of our clients, you will appreciate the lunches - because... being French, we like as well good food than good dives. No pack lunches on our boat.

JUNIOR, your Dive Guide, is a 10 years friend. With him as well than with us, SAFETY is the first rule, but he will be able to see "things" you would never see without him. Our crew is efficient and discrete.
Our stewardess on board is attentive and always smiling; sometimes they are Two.
One of them is particularly taking care of the children when we have some on board and when their parents are under the sea.
