Première expérience en plongée sous marine qui se fait ici, plus qu’un baptême c’était une balade encadrée en ayant cette sensation d’être libre. Toutes les explications ont été claires., merci Fifi pour ton professionnalisme et ta bienveillance, c’était une réussite

Une heure exceptionnelle dans la réserve Cousteau ! (clin d'oeil à ce grand monsieur, fascinant héros de mon enfance)

Diving is scary for me. The fear of drowning and being lost or forgotten in the sea is terrifying to me. I did this adventure to face my fears and enjoy the beauty of the underworld. This was a great place to do it and a safe place as well. I would do it again with this crew!

Ayant décidé de plonger juste pour le loisir (sans nécessairement d’exercices ciblés liés à la pratique), Manu a nous a fait profiter d’une heure de découverte incroyable.

J'ai adoré cette promenade d'1h. 1h d'émerveillement où j'ai pu voir un requin dormeur en + des poissons et murènes habituels le tout avec un sentiment de sécurité total (présence du professionnel sans toute fois être trop intrusif) merci à l'équipe.
