Activity description

Discover freediving with the Chango Diving team during an unforgettable experience in the bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer from the port of Nice!

Do you dream of discovering the unique sensations of freediving without committing yourself to a course? The Chango Diving team proposes you to realize a freediving experience in the bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer, a few minutes away from Nice, for a taste of the discipline!

Each of us is able to realize free dives of more than 2 minutes and to go down to a depth of at least 15 meters, you just have to try! During this freediving course, you will learn the basics of breathing, compensation, relaxation and release before diving. You will progress underwater with the help of a rope at first, and gradually, to become aware of the depth, you will descend with fins. You will also have the opportunity to observe the fishes near the reef if you are not too tired at the end of the session!

The bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer is 2.5 km long and has a 1.5 km width. Its configuration makes it extremely sheltered from the wind: big waves are rare during the summer period! Its descending relief makes it one of the best sites in the world for freediving, accessible in less than 15 minutes from the port of Nice.

You will dive with the help of equipment specially adapted to the discipline from Cressi sub. All the necessary equipment will be provided: Apnea suits, Gara fins, masks and snorkels.


- Meeting at the diving center where you will be welcomed by your instructor
- You will then be equipped (possibility of changing rooms on the spot) and a briefing on breathing will be given
- Direction to the boat at 100 m from the diving school and departure for the half-day trip
- Return to the dive center with debriefing
