This was an excellent trip - well organized, straightforward, and lots of fun. 15 minutes to check in and get fitted for gear, 30 minutes out, one hour snorkeling, 30 minutes back. The two guides were knowledgeable, helpful, and laid back. The boat ride was beautiful, passing mansions along Mont Boron and mooring near the shore of Cap Ferrat, where we all jumped in and snorkeled freely. It's a protected marine area, with crusty rocks and lots of little fish to watch. The whole vibe was great.

All very well organised. We arrived on time and departed in the boat in good time. The boat had a pleasant number of people on board which was great. Room for all to sit wherever they chose. 25 min boat trip, 1 hour in water or on boat (free to do as you pleased - stay in water or go in and out) 25 min boat trip back. Very relaxed.

This was a really great excursion and really great value for money! The staff were really friendly and welcoming. The activity itself was really fun and I would 100 percent recommend this for nature lovers. However if you have sea sickness or you struggle swimming then it is an obvious miss. 10/10 from me!

We had a perfect magical experience riding on the boat, seeings lots of fish and even an octopus and an eel. My teen daughters enjoyed jumping off the boat and just swimming in the beautiful water as well. I’m glad I didn’t let me fear of jellyfish prevent me from going on this trip!

Place was a little confusing to find. The guide was funny, but maybe a tad controlling (near ripped my face off with the snorkel mask).

Awesome value for money, beautiful place to snorkel.

This is a great way to see the Azur coastline from the water as well as some beautiful marine life! We snorkeled in a beautiful area of coastline and saw a lot of fish, grasses, and even some jellyfish. They were electric blue and purple! We had a full hour in the water which was great! They do pack the boat pretty full. Remember to bring a towel with you -- I didn't. This is definitely worth the money -- it's almost like a 2-in-1 tour because of the boat cruise as well as the snorkeling time!

Watch out for Jellyfish!!
Carole_W

I never write reviews, but I felt strong enough about this trip to write one so I could warn others. I suggest that you spend your valuable vacation elsewhere. This trip was disappointing from beginning to end. The old wooden boat had no comfortable places to sit, the captain of it should not be in the ‘people business’ because of his rude and impatient manner, and the ultimate destination had little to see underwater, but more importantly, the destination is full of jellyfish! Several people were stung by jellyfish and screaming in pain. Many people just got right back in the boat, either because they had been stung or were too afraid that it was going to happen. So, it was a very poor trip and a waste of our time and money. When the boat carries jellyfish sting medicine and tells you about it in advance, you know you have a problem.
