    I never dive, how does it go?

    It's very simple !!!!

    In France a first dive is a baptism.

    You will be alone, in the water, with your instructor who will explain, advise and be close to you throughout your discovery.

    You will sail on the "Volitans", our boat, for about 10 minutes of sailing. We will make you discover our seabed by taking you on coral bottom, and who says coral funds says all the life that goes with it!
    On the boat, you are protected from the sun, and to go down in the water, it is done quietly by sliding or jumping from the rear platform which is a few tens of centimeters from the water.
