How does a scuba diving initiation take place?

Once a week in the high season, we offer at our campsites at Campings Annecy: Camping La Ravoire and Camping Les Fontaines a scuba diving taster session with our partner company, Takaplonger. This session is a first initiation to diving and is an extremely popular activity that your children will always remember about their holiday here with us on Lake Annecy!
More than a diving initiation, this session provides your children with the opportunity to discover scuba diving in the safety of a swimming pool with a qualified and competent instructor whilst having fun. Your children will learn how to breathe underwater and move in 3 dimensions in the water.
Take the time to discover diving during a real playful learning session. Your children will discover unforgettable sensations. Breathing underwater, moving in 3 dimensions, weightlessness, change of reference points...

Who can participate in this taster session?

You must be at least 8 years old and be able to swim and be completely comfortable in the water.
The activity is offered in July and August.

How does it work?

The activity lasts for 45 minutes on certain week day evenings in July / August. Registration is limited to two groups.
Arnaud, the instructor from Takaplonger, provides the wetsuits to each participant and explains the role of the equipment and how it all works. Firstly, you will practice breathing first out of the water and then afterwards underwater. Arnaud takes the time to accompany each child individually in order to help them evolve underwater in complete safety.
When everyone is confident with the equipment and how it works, we venture from the shallow end/ the small pool, into the larger pool and your children will discover our swimming pools in a new light!
