My wife and I had a wonderful experience snorkling off the coast of Cote d'Azur. I had never been and the guides were great and super helpful in making me feel comfortable in the water. We really appreciated the care they took to explain the surrounding sights and ecosystem, as well as to point out fish, octopi, and other coral life. Really fantastic experience. The only thing to note is that parking is a bit tough near the meet up point, so I would arrive early and be prepared for a bit of a walk to the dock.

We had a great time snorkeling with Judicael! We arrived a little late but just in time before the boat left(thankfully!). Judicael provided facts about the area and the marine life in that area. I appreciated the free time he gave us to roam around on our own. Before we left we were also able to remove our wet suits, mask, and swim fins, and jump back into the water to continue cooling off and relax in the beautifully clear waters! Would definitely do again. I just wish we had more time in Nice to book scuba diving with him (also an option).

The host was very welcoming us and the experience is unbelievable. It is a bit windy today and my friend and I were not in our best health condition (we are tired from the trekking the day before) but the team was kind enough to take care of us. Good experience to try if you are sea lover

Great experience and afternoon out. The team and guides were all excellent. They were really kind and did tour in French for me and English for my partner. Highly recommend !

The instructors really made the experience really fun. They were funny and super clear with the instructions. During the experience we got to see a bunch of fish, touched a jelly fish and saw an octopus. It was tons of fun! They rent Gopros for 20 euros so consider getting that!

Nous sommes parties avec Camille. Elle nous a expliqué très bien comment utiliser le matériel. Puis dans l‘eau elle nous a amené au meilleurs coins et montré quelques animaux particuliers. Même si c’était la première fois que j’ai fait du plongeur dans la mer, je me sentais toujours en sécurité avec elle. C’était vraiment chouette, merci 😊
