The baptism of diving

A must-see in Martinique

At Alpha Plongée, we attach particular importance to your first immersion. Your first dive must be a magical moment and remain unforgettable. It is hand in hand, alone with your instructor, that you will give your first strokes of the fins in a magical setting. Welcome to the third dimension.

For adults (from 14 years old when diving), we can descend to a depth of 6 meters.

For children, we will adapt the depth according to age: 2 meters between 8 and 10 years old and 3 meters between 10 and 14 years old, as the regulations tell us.

People with disabilities are welcome and we will do our best to share our activity with you.

After a first initiation by the beach during which we will introduce you to breathing underwater, we set off for one of our dive sites. This is where you will do your first dive, which we will personalize according to your wishes.

By the time you exit this first adventure, you will have learned to breathe and observe underwater. And you will have only one desire … to continue!

Offer a first dive

This is the perfect gift that is sure to please… we promise!

We provide you with a voucher with the surname and first name of the person as well as a RIB for the payment (60 €).

All you have to do is contact us to make an appointment: we dive every day at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.

And off we go for a half-day of pure happiness: initiation by the beach, a little boat, snorkeling on the reef, especially a dive alone with an instructor who will personalize this discovery to make the moment unforgettable!

Our training

Beyond the first dive

In the best conditions

Fancy a little more freedom and autonomy? Now is the time to train yourself to scuba dive. We issue both French and international diplomas.

The PADI Scuba Diver will allow you to climb up to 12 meters, accompanied by an instructor. From your first training dive, you will learn how to assemble and disassemble your equipment.

Everything ready? So on the way to discover what is the balance underwater because the monitor does not hold you any more!

During these three dives, we will teach you all the simple steps to know to evolve in a group with an instructor.

0-12 meters is the richest part of the Caribbean Sea because the light and the colors are there!

Quiet stroll along this rocky scree where it is not uncommon to meet turtles. They often roam in the midst of a very rich and diverse fixed fauna.

L’Anse Trois Airs offers the possibility of wreck diving as soon as it is baptized. The place owes its name to the ship which ran aground there and which is accessible to the diver, even a beginner.

All this under the gaze of parrot fish and blue surgeons. What if we ended this dive by going to see the puppet fish on the sand? And for certified divers, it’s also the start for the Petites Jorasses!

14. Les Jorasses (0-60m)

Very beautiful relief made of faults, holes and rock clusters without forgetting this wall from 40 meters.
