Awesome trip, our skippers were friendly and super helpful! The water was beyond beautiful and clear. Short trip were you don't get bored at all. Highly recommend, especially that it leaves the rest of the day for you to plan more stuff afterwards.

It was fun!!! it’s worth mentioning the water was pretty rough, but that isn’t anyones fault! I got sick, but that also didn’t stop me from having fun, I still went snorkeling. The captian and his kids were very kind and funny, one of them found a star fish! Super pretty and a great experience.

Wonderful stay in Nice

The location of this AirBnb was perfect, we were close to everything and never had to worry about taking public transportation within Nice. A short walk to Old Nice as well as the beach. The view from where you eat in the apartment is also beautiful giving a nice sense of the architecture in Nice. Despite the heat with the windows open the apartment wasn’t too hot and with the fans provided was a comfortable environment.

Beautiful experience but expect delays

The tour itself is very very beautiful and the snorkeling was good as well. I only wish that it was punctual. We had another tour booked with a start time that is 1.5 hrs after the snorkeling trip timings. But had to almost miss our next appointment. But overall this is a great experience

Well worth a visit

A short boat but pleasant boat trip from the Marina to the location for snorkelling, great views of the houses nestled in the hills above the coast. The snorkelling was good with plenty of small fish, was lucky enough to see an octopus. Great value for money, would definitely go again

Nice snorkeling trip. Crew was very friendly. Enough time in the water. It is what the explanation says, no big fish, just small once. Nice to see the landscape from the see.

It was my first snorkling trip and it was amazing to meet the fish “in person” and see how they lived. I cannot wait to do it again. Everything was effectively planned by the organisers. Thank you!

Excellent afternoon on the Med!
Tyler_S

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! 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.

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
jtg908
, 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.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2019
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!

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.

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 !!
