Activity description

Come and discover diving and the superb seabed of the Mediterranean Sea in Nice with the instructors of Chango Diving!

Do you dream of learning to dive and discovering the richness of the sea bed? Join the Chango Diving school in the port of Nice to experience an unforgettable first dive on the French Riviera! You will have the pleasure to realize your first immersion on diving sites which abound in fish such as the Grande Baie or the Coral Cave on the Cap Ferat. The choice of dive sites depends on the weather conditions, but also on your desires!

The first dive will be done in pairs with an individual instructor in order to make you discover the discipline in the best possible conditions. You will leave by boat from the port of Nice for the half-day group and will dive each in turn. It is also possible to dive with two people at the same time, each with their own instructor if you wish.

While waiting for your turn or after your dive, you can enjoy the sun on the boat or go snorkeling to continue to explore the site from the surface before returning to Nice.

Basic Diver SSI
Read more

The Basic Diver SSI is the most complete introduction to diving.

The objective is to make two dives of about 20 minutes underwater during which you will dive to a maximum depth of 6 meters.

Upon your arrival, the team will present all the equipment and the course of your trip from one of their boats. Once in the water with your instructor, you will be with between 2 and 4 other trainees at the same time for greater comfort.

Itinerary

The first part of the initiation is dedicated to the discovery of the sensations under water, the awareness of the breathing on a regulator, the balancing of the ears, how to position under water and the elementary use of your diving equipment. You will learn to move in weightlessness without being maintained by a monitor, this is the big difference compared to the baptism of classic diving!

The second part of diving is always dedicated to the underwater walk and the exploration of the surrounding seabed. Our dive sites for beginners are all located in the natural harbor of Villefranche-sur-Mer (real natural sea shelter) along the Cap of Nice or Cap Ferrat according to the destination of the day.

As someone that was pretty nervous about scuba diving for the first time I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The scenery wasn't anything too spectacular but it was what I needed - peaceful. The instructor was calm and educational, which was great! Would definitely reccomend and will absolutely try again whenever I'm back!

Génial

I really wanted to try to scuba dive even I was afraid of the depth of the water. Thanks to the amazing instructor who had patience to teach me anything and giving my time, I could manage to dive peacefully and I really enjoyed the experience! Totally recommend!

Basic dive - thorough instruction, nice with a few simple exercises, and great with a full hour or more underwater to really have time to get comfortable and fully take in the experience.
