Just wondering if anyone tried diving in Barcelona and Costa Brava...

If so, what's it like? is it any good of the coast?
Worth diving there?

Any dive centre to recommend?

Thanks

I've dived around there... Llfranc or something about 30 minutes outside of Barcelona. The dive centre was very good but purely recreational stuff. No provision for mixed gas let alone CCR. Had no idea what a MOD3 cert meant but fair play to them they let us just crack on and do our dives without interfering.

The vis was cracking, clear as gin at 50m+. Nice rock formations, overhangs, crevices, swim throughs, caverns - fish too (if you're into that sort of thing). We were out there because my buddy was getting married so we dived up until the morning of his wedding. Wouldn't have thought of going there otherwise but WELL worth it and glad we did.

Planning a 3/4 night stay doing the inland sightseeing things, but so curious about the sea around there too.. now after you mentioned, sounds like worth taking my gear over just for a quick dive too then!
thanks
