Diving The Riviera

Scuba Diving on the Riviera



Since prices of individual dives are pretty much the same, it really depends on your level of experience and expectations when it comes to diving. If you are a complete novice, going to the maximum depth of 10 meters, the closest dive school in Nice will do, the staff is experienced, friendly and fluent in English.


If you expect little more, travel little further – at least Golfe Juan, you will be rewarded by much more exciting dive sites.
