Scuba Diving in Paris – Pools and Clubs

In order to not spend your whole vacation taking divetheory courses and instead, enjoy your valuable time to the max-- or if you want to train to dive at your own pace year long-- the solution is simple: dive in Paris!

No, that doesn’t mean finning it in the Seine or the Canal Saint Martin. It means getting your level certification in 15- to 20-meter pools specially designed for this purpose in the Paris vicinity. You can also brush up your skills if it’s been a while since you got your fins wet. You will have the opportunity to take theory and practical classes with a club in a protected environment in Paris to validate your FFESSM level 1 or PADI Open Water. You will also have 4 dives in an open area during vacation or weekend getaway to do in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

There are dozens of Paris diving clubs that offer training as well as introductory dives and even freediving courses. They are spread out in almost all swimming pools in Paris proper and in aquatic centers equipped with special pools, such as Charenton-le-Pont, Villeneuve la Garenne, and Conflans-Saint-Honorine. These community clubs and dive centers are primarily dedicated to training: in fact, there’s no real point in carrying out an exploratory dive in chlorinated water.

Some clubs offer trips to quarries around the capital. At the Lac des Ciments, in Beaumont in the Oise, the FFESSM has plans to open a huge quarry of crystal clear water—probably a little cold—specially equipped for scuba diving.

The clubs usually provide the gear because, for reasons of hygiene and safety, you should train under the best conditions.

So, what are you waiting for? Why spend hours of quality vacation time in a classroom when you can be out and about diving in the wild? Take a weekend or course during the year prepping for the big moment in one of the many clubs and pools in Paris. It’s the smart thing to do!
