Scuba diving with Rand’eau Evasion – Villefranche-sur-Mer

Discover the riches of the fauna and flora of the Mediterranean underwater diving! Conviviality, Security, Professionalism!

Being a level 4 diver myself, I was very interested in testing an activity that I practice regularly.

The diving center is ideally located at the Port de la Darse in Villefranche-sur-Mer; it has a reception area, supports with all the diving equipment and a sanitary corner / toilet.

Upon arrival, the welcome was very friendly; the team offered us coffee and gave us an information sheet to fill in. The instructor inquired about my qualifications (I showed him my card), my last dive, if it went well … well the usual questions to get to know me better. The formalities being carried out, I proceed to the fitting of the equipment; which was in perfect condition.

Immediate boarding

Once the diving bottles are loaded on the boat, we leave the Port of Darse to go to the diving site which is 5 to 10 minutes of navigation. Sitting comfortably on the boat, I take the opportunity to admire the Citadel of Villefranche-sur-Mer, all the small multicolored houses hung on the coast, the sumptuous villas of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat … The bay of Villefranche-sur-mer has a beautiful view of the sea!

We arrive at the diving site; the wetting is done gently and carefully so as not to damage the underwater environment. It is true that this Diving Center is a signatory of the NATURA 2000 CAP FERRAT charter (environmental protection) and is committed to a quality approach with obtaining the QUALITY TOURISM PACA.

The teams, the security settings and dives communicated, the equipment set, a reverse rocker executed and splash … I’m in the water. I admit that the surface temperature is almost indecent … the computer shows 28 degrees … we immerse ourselves for 50 minutes of exploration available to us.

The site is particularly full of fish, moray eels, lobsters, sars, dentis, anchovy bank, wrasses, groupers, corbs, octopus, castagnoles … it’s only happiness, I had a lot of eye candy…

Back in the center, the team offers a refreshment during which I was able to exchange with the other divers.

I strongly advise to live this experience in this club. It offers diving baptisms, explorations, training, underwater hiking … there is something for everyone, for young and old, alone or in a small group!
