Amazing experience! I was immediately struck by the pristine quality of the water.

The guides provided top-notch equipment and a comprehensive safety briefing, ensuring everyone felt comfortable and prepared. The guides were incredibly knowledgeable, passionate, sharing interesting facts about the local ecosystem. Their enthusiasm was contagious, making the experience even more enjoyable. They also took care to highlight the importance of preserving this delicate environment, adding an educational dimension to the adventure. Overall, this snorkeling trip in the French Riviera exceeded all my expectations. I highly recommend this experience to anyone looking to explore the underwater wonders of the Mediterranean in a truly unforgettable way !!

Our guide, Cyril, was absolutely amazing. We could not have asked for a better guide. He was informative, insightful, funny and helpful. The villages were amazing, lunch was delicious, and the views were breathtaking. We learned a lot about the history of the region. It was 100% worth the money.

The tour was really enjoyable and Clinton the guide was great and very informative. The only small negative is that it is difficult at times to see what he is talking about from the centre seats in the 8 person vehicle. The a/c was also poor.

Vincent is like a friend you never knew you had.He was amazing and knowledgeable. The most interesting man in the world. The boat ride was the best ride we’ve ever had. We got to swim in the clear blue waters. He was an amazing host!

I really enjoyed this boat trip, beautiful views, enough time for swimming and snookering.
