Become a Dive Master by being a Dive Guide + Dive Science


Three levels for children are offered: bronze, silver and gold divers. For young children, the depth will always be shallow and the diving conditions particularly favorable.

The instructor validates exercises with each little diver according to his or her abilities and values his or her progress and his or her development in complete safety.

INCLUDES: 4 supervised dives with equipment rental


Medical certificate & parental authorization 

LEVEL 1: €375

This training course allows you to acquire techniques and knowledge to scuba dive safely. At the end of this course, you will know how to manage your equipment and you will have all the basics to work your way up to -20 meters under the responsibility of an instructor, everywhere in France or abroad.

INCLUDES: 5 dives in the sea, diving equipment rental

LEVEL 2: €525

The level 2 course will allow you to dive between 0 and 20 meters in Autonomy with 1 or 2 team members maximum of the same minimum level.
Of course, you will remain under the responsibility of a diving director who will choose the site and the parameters of the dive.

You can also dive from 20 to 40 meters, accompanied by an instructor.

The objective of this course will be to teach you to manage your autonomy down to -20 meters and to be comfortable in the -40m zone accompanied by a guide.

INCLUDES: 8 dives in the sea

LEVEL 3: €600

The level 3 diver can work their way up to 0 to -60 meters in autonomy based on the decision of the diving director. In their absence, he or she can set the place, the parameters and the organization of the dive.
Vous devez aussi être titulaire d’un diplôme de secourisme RIFAP/RESCUE ou équivalent admis. ( Si ce n’est pas le cas, vous pouvez aussi le préparer au sein de l’école)

INCLUDES: 10 sea dives including deep dives between 40-60m)

RIFAP : 150€

Divers who plan to become autonomous are encouraged to participate in this training session in order to learn first aid techniques to deal with a problem during a dive (demonstrations and simulated accident situations).

The RIFAP(Reactions and Interventions in the face of Diving Accidents) is mandatory for entry in Level 3training.

This first aid certificate is also recognized in France as an equivalent of the Emergency First Response (EFR), required to become a Rescue Diver (PADI / SSI international schools). 

Nitrox base : 170€

The word NITROX is the contraction of the English words Nitrogen and Oxygen. The air we breathe is composed of 21% oxygen and 78% nitrogen. Nitrox is a mixture of air enriched with oxygen, usually between 32% and 40%.

This reduces the amount of nitrogen absorbed (responsible for saturation) and therefore reduces the constraints related to decompression (fewer stops to be made). Nitrox offers more comfort and safety while diving.

From N1 or PE20


As a Nitrox Base Diver, you can improve your skills and learn to use Nitrox regardless of its oxygen content. The dive is done with asecond tank attached to the vest in order to decompress with oxygen. This allows more nitrogen to be removed in the same bearing time compared to bearings made with air.

Niveau 4 : 850€


This level gives you the right to lead exploration dives and gives you access to instructor training for the state or federal certificates. 

The preparatory course includes theoretical courses and physical preparation for the exams, as well as the necessary remediation to present yourself in good conditions for the exams.

+ Examination fee: 50 euros

Become a professional diver 
Prepare yourself for a profession in diving

Many jobs exist when it comes to scuba diving: 


- The first one that comes to mind is that of a scuba diving instructor. In France, an instructor must have a state diploma to work for pay and have a current professional card. The BPJEPS (professional certificate for youth, popular education and sport) and DEJEPS (professional diploma for youth, popular education and sport) are delivered by the CREPS. 

The diving school offers you the opportunity to train and improve your skills in order to pass the entrance exam to the CREPS and, therefore, realize your professional projects (program here).

In order to work in most countries in the world (consult the regulations in force in the territory you are interested in), you can become a "Dive Guide Pro". The diving school proposes to train you until you obtain the title and status DIVE GUIDE PRO SSI (program here).


-  When we mention underwater workers, we think of the "heavy feet" who carry out structural work, welding, bolting, building underwater. But this also concerns underwater biologists, people who work in aquariums, aquacultures, and professional underwater photographers who work to  protect the environment by counting aquatic species! 

Different diploma classes are available in the diving school (more info on

Our diving center offers you the chance to prepare yourself as much as possible for the requirements of the desired diploma; Pascal also teaches at the scuba diving school located a few steps from the boat(program here).


- For those who want to become a SCUBA Diver, Pascal offers customized training to optimize your chances of being recruited for the competitive exams, accompanied by coaching and physical and mental preparation. 


As part of our quality training approach, a preliminary interview will be conducted to discuss your professional project. A complete course or a course with some reductions will be proposed according to your level and experience in diving. More information by phone, video, or e-mail. 


ALPHA BELUGA is a QUALIOPI certified training organization (national quality standard for training organizations).

Your training can be financed by Pôle Emploi or the OPCO of your company. Find out more!
