First Dive in the Bay of Saint-Leu in Reunion Island

Organized by
3 hrs
Everybody welcome
From 8 years-old and up

Enjoy your first dive with a professional instructor in the shallow waters around Saint-Leu in Reunion island!

Make your first dive in the lagoon of Saint-Leu, in the east of the Reunion Island, and enjoy the underwater fauna and flora of the Indian Ocean!

Scuba diving is the basic activity for all those who wish to start scuba diving. And what better way to start than in the Bay of Saint-Leu, a space that is part of the Natural Marine Reserve of Reunion Island and is full of fish?

Your first dive in the Bay of Saint-Leu will take place in clear waters at a maximum depth of 6 meters, with a certified diving instructor at your side to accompany you throughout this exceptional experience. You will stay immersed for about 20 minutes to discover the sensations of scuba diving, but also the incredibly rich underwater life in the heart of the Natural Marine Reserve of Reunion Island! Maybe you will even have the chance to see sea turtles!

Once you have completed your first dive, you will return to the centre and decide whether or not you'd like to embark on an Open Water diving course to continue your scuba diving training in Saint-Leu!

Pour une première plongée on peu difficilement demander mieux comme cadre. On se retrouve transporté dans un décor de carte postale pour vivre un moment magique entouré d'une équipe de passionnés souriants. A ne pas manquer.
