What people are saying about Calanques National Park

My guide was totally awesome. He paid close attention to me and ensured that I was comfortable with the scuba dive and snorkel activities. I would really recommend this to anyone.

Guide was very friendly and had great info about the sights we saw on the trip. Was not rushed and had an amazing swim in the sea. All round would recommend !

It was very nice to experience diving at least once and the people were very nice too. They explained it well even though there was a language barrier.

One of the coolest things I’ve ever done and the instructor I had was brilliant, very patient and very fun. Could not recommend this more.

Was able to dive for a long time, snorkeling was nice too. Vincent did a great job! Very cool group, everything relaxed and uncomplicated
