Activity description

Want to experience a timeless immersion in the transparent waters of the French Riviera? Take a guided snorkeling tour in Antibes!

Meet the BeFreeToDive team in Villeneuve-Loubet, at Cap d'Antibes, between Cannes and Nice. With them, you will leave by boat on the turquoise waters of the French Riviera to reach the diving spot and discover or rediscover the activity of snorkeling accompanied by a passionate professional.

Snorkeling is a nautical activity open to all. Ideal for sharing a unique moment alone or with your loved ones between Nice and Cannes, snorkeling is a must to enjoy a unique perspective on the French Riviera. You will discover a magical universe, full of life and calm at the same time!

A qualified guide will take the time to teach beginners the basics of snorkelling, but also to accompany the initiated. Our partner's team will supervise you throughout the trip to make your snorkeling trip in Cap d'Antibes an unforgettable experience in the waters of the French Riviera!

Your snorkelling trip will take place in the Pelagos sanctuary, a place of extraordinary biodiversity. This protected marine area is a real jewel of the Mediterranean, particularly known for its rich cetacean population. This snorkeling trip from the Marina de la Baie des Anges will make you aware of the preservation of the underwater world: you will thus become an actor in the protection of this beautiful and fragile environment.

Das Schnorcheln an sich war wirklich super und wir konnten viele Fische, Seeigel, eine Qualle und Seesterne sehen. Allerdings war die Organisation wirklich chaotisch. Wir haben einen laut Manawa freien Termin gebucht, der dann verschoben wurde und es wurden uns Alternativen, die dem Anbieter passen, angeboten. Wir haben dann eine ausgesucht und eine Bestätigung bekommen. So weit so gut. Vor Ort wurde dann festgestellt, dass nicht mit uns gerechnet wurde. Wir hatten das Gefühl, dass eigentlich keine Schnorcheltour stattgefunden hat, sondern dass man uns bei den Tauchern „einfach mitgenommen“ hat. Wir mussten also wirklich lange mit unserer Ausrüstung warten, bis sämtliche Taucher mit Ausstattung etc. ausgerüstet waren und das Boot beladen war. Vor Ort, hatten wir eine kurze Einweisung und dann waren wir hauptsächlich zu zweit unterwegs, bis wir wieder zum Boot gerufen wurden. Wäre alles weniger ein Problem gewesen, wenn nicht der Anbieter selbst den Termin vorgeschlagen hätte. Die wunderschönen Fische und der schöne Spot geben trotz allem Stress 3 Sterne. Wir waren allerdings froh, dass wir beide schon mal davor schnorcheln waren. Außerdem war man nur an einem Spot. Bei unserer letzten schnorcheltour war es wirklich eine Tour und man hat mehrere Spots gesehen. Hier fehlt uns aber die Erfahrung, um das zu beurteilen.

Funny start and end with the RIB tour to the snorkeling spot. Really nice mixture of sand and rocks. We have seen a lot of fish.

If you're in Cote d'Azur, definitely do the water activities and after a lot of research I felt that Antibes has the best of them. It was our first time so started off with snorkeling, which turned out to be mesmerizing and definitely going back soon to them for Scuba diving.

Absolutely worth it. I am not the greatest swimmer, so I was a bit scared of it all, but I would definitely do it all again.

Fun, brief snorkeling experience. The fish were not plentiful, so not much to see compared to the Caribbean.
