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.

Awesome trip, our skippers were friendly and super helpful! The water was beyond beautiful and clear. Short trip were you don't get bored at all. Highly recommend, especially that it leaves the rest of the day for you to plan more stuff afterwards.

It was fun!!! it’s worth mentioning the water was pretty rough, but that isn’t anyones fault! I got sick, but that also didn’t stop me from having fun, I still went snorkeling. The captian and his kids were very kind and funny, one of them found a star fish! Super pretty and a great experience.

Wonderful stay in Nice

The location of this AirBnb was perfect, we were close to everything and never had to worry about taking public transportation within Nice. A short walk to Old Nice as well as the beach. The view from where you eat in the apartment is also beautiful giving a nice sense of the architecture in Nice. Despite the heat with the windows open the apartment wasn’t too hot and with the fans provided was a comfortable environment.

The tour itself is very very beautiful and the snorkeling was good as well. I only wish that it was punctual. We had another tour booked with a start time that is 1.5 hrs after the snorkeling trip timings. But had to almost miss our next appointment. But overall this is a great experience

A short boat but pleasant boat trip from the Marina to the location for snorkelling, great views of the houses nestled in the hills above the coast. The snorkelling was good with plenty of small fish, was lucky enough to see an octopus. Great value for money, would definitely go again

Nice snorkeling trip. Crew was very friendly. Enough time in the water. It is what the explanation says, no big fish, just small once. Nice to see the landscape from the see.

It was my first snorkling trip and it was amazing to meet the fish “in person” and see how they lived. I cannot wait to do it again. Everything was effectively planned by the organisers. Thank you!

Excellent afternoon on the Med!
Tyler_S
, Jul 2021
Great snorkeling experience on the Med. Crew were safe and friendly. The boat ride is 30 minutes to the spot and then you can snorkel for 90 minutes. Water is crystal clear and warm (~24 C, end of July). Truly, a great experience with many safety briefings. Only thing that would make this better is if there were drinks available along the journey. Well worth the money for an afternoon on the water!

Great tour! The boat ride itself is worth the price of the tour. Snorkeling and swimming were outstanding and the staff was really good. They were thorough about expectations and yet retained their sense of humor. We had a wonderful time.
