  Booking information

The date and time indicated on your reservation are valid for the first dive. For the following ones, please refer to the dive club.


With the SSI Basic Diver course you will learn all you need to know to dive to a depth of 12 meters with one of our certified instructors. The theory, as well as the 4 dives included in this training, will give you all the keys to react to common underwater situations. Faster than the Open Water course, the 4 dives can then be credited towards your Open Water course, if completed within 6 months.

Dive among the colourful fish of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez! Meet the local fauna and flora and discover the diversity of the underwater landscapes of the Mediterranean Sea. Discover the feeling of weightlessness underwater and live a unique experience.

The SSI Basic Diver qualifies you to:
- Dive to a maximum depth of 12 metres/40 feet
- Dive with a scuba diving instructor by your side

- eLearning:
The theoretical training is done in your myssi space, or on the myssi smartphone application. We will send you the access details for the online training that you will have to complete before the start date of your first dive.
- Kick-off:
For the practical course, the meeting point is at the diving club, where you will be provided with the necessary equipment. Then, take the boat to the dive site and watch the Mediterranean coastline recede before your eyes. Finally, after a short briefing on the use of the equipment and an explanation of the activity, dive into the water and let your instructor guide you!
