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.

Small family run dive center is to be found in Golfe Juan, small town between Antibes and Cannes. The train is the best option for the transport as the dive centre is 200m from Golfe Juan-Vallauris train station.
The dive shop has an access to 20 dive sites within 15 min boat drive including Cap d’Antibes, Les Îles de Lérins and La Formigue. La Formigue is particularly interesting, it is a miniature maritime city that was constructed by French filmmakers in the 1960’s who wanted to shoot parts of their movie, L’Enfant et la Sirène -The Child and the Mermaid on a real underwater film set).
