FFESSM level 1 course


Certification fee included (if diploma is graduated) Book now

After you have done your first diving, if you want to continue the adventure you will be able to do it by passing the ” Level 1 ”.

This training takes place in 5 dives. It will allow you to be recognized as a certified diver all over the world, and even by other international schools (FFESSM, CMAS, PADI, ANMP, SNMP, CEDIP). This will allow you to evolve up to 20m, moreover all the sites will be accessible to you.

You will need to have a medical certificate of non-contraindication to the practice. The remaining administrative formalities (insurance, certifications and theoretical support) are included.

During the dives there will be a “Technique” part of about 15 to 20 min, and a part “put into practice” of 20 to 30 min. As much as possible we will change sites at each session. A theoretical support will be given for you to study it quietly. We will carry out a knowledge check to ensure that we understand the physical and physiological phenomena (level 1 is accessible from the age of 12).

The appointments will be taken according to our common schedules, you can make two dives in the same day. The schedules are: 8: 00-10: 30; 10h30-13h00; 14h00-16h30. Every day (public holidays and Sunday, please contact us).

Authentic reviews from our Google Maps Paradis Plongée page.

These guys are a little tucked away and a bit hard to find. They are right by the water and they do have a sign at the road where you turn into their parking lot. Martin speaks good English but if you have a some French it will be helpful. They use the European style of tank and are metric so air pressure is in bars. Not a big difference but slightly different way of diving if you’re used to PADI training and psi gauges. Also bring your dive watch if you have one. They don’t include a depth gauge so you have to rely on the dive master, who was totally on it, but I wish I had mine just to know where we are while diving. Otherwise a great experience. We really liked these guys.

I usually don’t spent time writing reviews but those guys really deserve it! My experience was beyond expectations. The team is super nice. Martin is really exceptional - never met such a good instructor. He taught me few good stuff even after 100+ dives. Fred the owner is super friendly. Prices are really fair. Vibe is on point - I can only HIGHLY recommend.

Fantastic diving facility. Accommodated me despite the fact that I know no French whatsoever. Provided a separate dive brief in English even though I was the only non-francophone on the entire boat. Very friendly and would highly recommend! Thanks Fred and Martin!

Super friendly diving base in southern Martinique. Fred & his team are very welcoming and helpful. The guides did a wonderful job, helping us with a fun & secure start into our new hobby. The sites are beautiful and easy to dive. The equipment is up to date and in perfect condition. Kindly recommended!
