Excellent afternoon on the Med!
, Jul 2021
Great snorkeling experience on the Med. Crew were safe and friendly. The boat ride is 30 minutes to the spot and then you can snorkel for 90 minutes. Water is crystal clear and warm (~24 C, end of July). Truly, a great experience with many safety briefings. Only thing that would make this better is if there were drinks available along the journey. Well worth the money for an afternoon on the water!
Great Tour!
, Jul 2021
Great tour! The boat ride itself is worth the price of the tour. Snorkeling and swimming were outstanding and the staff was really good. They were thorough about expectations and yet retained their sense of humor. We had a wonderful time.
Very organized
, Jul 2021
The attention to detail for the mask fitting was amazing and appreciated. Briefly told us exactly everything we needed to know.

Nice boat and good visibility Thierry very kind, an a perfect amount of time, the whole experience was entertained
Amazing Staff!
, Aug 2020
I ended up getting extremely seasick, but the staff was very helpful- getting into the water helps to calm with the motion of the waves, I would definitely recommend this, everything you need was provided and I had so much fun exploring the reef!
Snorkellers ignored
, Aug 2019
Snorkellers were ignored in favour of divers. The risk of Jellyfish stings was only mentioned as an afterthought when questioned during the briefing. Half the snorkellers were then stung and no real medication was available on board. Apparently one of our fellow snorkellers had been assured the day before that we would be equipped with wetsuits to counter the problem but this was either forgotten or ignored. Meanwhile the divers had a great time whilst all the snorkellers had been scared out of the water.

Sorry if we can't control the jellyfish ...and if they live in the sea ... A specific medication for the stings of them :a "locoid cream" is available on board and was given to all the "victim". With a water temperature around 27°c at the surface, of course we don't provided diving wet suit for the snorkelers in this period !! I don't really understand the motivation of your review.... A advice for you if you are scared about the sea marine life: stay ashore !!!

Best ever!
, Jul 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed this experience - so much time to snorkel and see all the fish. Definitely recommend. Plenty of time to swim around. The operator is organised with all the equipment which is fitted on you first, before going out - to ensure correct sizing.
Great break from sight seeing
, Jun 2019
The snorkeling trip was great! The staff were friendly and efficient and the swimming location was absolutely beautiful Definitely worth the value and a great break from sight seeing on a hot summer day.
Bonne expérience
, Sep 2020
Bonne expérience. Apres 20min de traversée le long de la baie de Villefranche nous avons eu 1h30 de temps libre pour faire notre activité avec masque et tuba. Attention par contre à ceux qui ont le mal de mer ça tangue bien !!
Un monde enchanté
, Aug 2020
Très cool. On a été emmené au meilleur endroit, une zone protégée avec bonne visibilité où on voit des poissons dès qu'on met la tête dans l'eau. Splendide !
