Welcome to our Cave Diving Center

We setup our shop, diving center and filling station in the heart of the French cave country in Lot.
We enjoy to provide you the best service, and all the help you need to arrange your stay.

Our Filling Station is open 7 days a week

The filling station is open all year round, 7 days a week.
Our standard opening hours:
- From May 1st to November 30th : 9h30 to 20h30
- From December 1st to April 30th : 9h30 to 19h00.

Sometimes when we give courses, when we have personal appointment, or for holidays, ..., we have to be absent, we always inform our customers on our Facebook page and our Facebook Group : Lot Cave Diving and Caving, therefore we kindly invite you to subscribe to our pages to follow our news so that you don't come to us and find closed doors (sorry if happened). Yes we still are cavers and divers!

We also update our special timetables (holidays, bank holidays, etc) on Google, so check our timetables on the establishment page on Google.

About us

In 2014 we built our online shop PROTEUSHOP as technical and cave divers.

We moved to the Lot, in the land of caves, at the end of 2018, in a beautiful location in the region, offering an ideal and central position towards the caves, but also a large indoor/outdoor space and excellent logistical access, a rarity in the protected area of the Regional Natural Park of Causses du Quercy.

In addition to the filling station, we offer services to divers and instructors with our shop, service and training centre, equipment rental.

Our building is located 19 minutes from Le Ressel, and about 30 minutes from most of the most famous caves (Marchepied, Landenouse, Saint Sauveur, Cabouy, Font Del Truffe...), allowing you to focus on your leisure activities and avoid wasting time driving.
We are also only 15 minutes from Figeac, the largest town in the area, where you will find a splendid outdoor market under the old covered hall on Saturday mornings, shops, supermarkets, numerous bars and restaurants, bowling, cinema etc. Much more pleasant to fill your moments of relaxation than other small cities where the rare restaurants close at 20h.

Take a look at our cave map and use the GPS points to easily find the caves and your dive centre!

Filling Station


We have two BAUER VERTICUS 15 compressors, each delivering 450l/min - 27M3/h. A third compressor of 15m3/h is dedicated to the manufacture of mixtures up to 32% oxygen and trimix.

The air is filtered with the BAUER Securus P61 system to ensure excellent breathing air quality.

Gas banks

We have 4 air banks 4x50L each, total of 16x50L 350b, that is 280M3 of air ready to use.
We also have 3 banks of Nitrox 32% 6x50L each, total of 18x50L at 350b, that is 315M3 of Nitrox 32 ready to dive and 4 banks of Trimix 10/70, 15/55, 18/45 and 21/35 with each 3x50L at 350b, that is 210M3 of pre-mixed Trimix.

Nitrox Membrane

We have a LP 300 Coltri Nitrox membrane, to produce Nitrox 32 on the fly at 450L/minute, and directly store it in our Nitrox banks.


We have an MPS TECHNOLOGY blender to make Nitrox and Trimix in continuous flow and fill our banks with mixes up to 32% oxygen. 2 compressors of 27 + 15M3/h can make mixes at the same time, a huge 69M3/h!


We use 3 high quality boosters from MPS TECHNOLOGY to make any desired mix.

Pure Gas Mixing Panel

In order to achieve the mixed gas on demand, we have implemented a solution that allows us to combine the advantages of cascade and overpressure techniques. 4 banks of oxygen (4x50L) and 4 banks of helium (4x50L) are connected to the distribution manifold and the bypass of the booster.

PSAI History
The Professional Scuba Association International is oldest technical / extended range scuba certification agencies in the world. PSAI was the first agency to offer certification at the diver and instructor levels in both recreational sport and technical diving, almost three decades before anyone else. PSAI was first founded in 1962 as Florida Divers Supply (FDS) by Hal Watts. In 1969 the name was changed to Florida State Skindiving Schools (FSSS). FSSS at the time was one of the largest dive schools in the world, with four locations in Florida and one in St. Lucia. It was as FSSS where the Golden Triangle originated and later evolved into the PSAI logo used today. As the organization had expanded well beyond the borders of Florida the name was again changed to the Professional Scuba Association (PSA) in 1988. The tenants, upon which PSA training was built, were so successful they led to further expansion into the international diving arena. Thus, in 1995 the “I” was added to PSA to make it the Professional Scuba Association, International (PSAI).
