What people are saying about Cannes

This was an incredible experience! The instructor was thorough (both in English and French) and the captain was on hand once we entered the sea to make sure everyone was alright. Definitely worth the price and the time passed so quickly! I definitely recommend this! I’d gladly do it again.

It was really nice, the hosts were very helpful and friendly. The weather was still good for October but the snorkeling rock was unsuitable for us as I was with the kids and they couldn't dive down much. I can still highly recommend with children
