A 230 m² heated swimming pool located at the North Pillar of the Eiffel Tower will allow visitors to experience their first scuba dive.
In an underwater environment, forty certified instructors (FFESSM : Fédération Française d’Etudes et de Sports Sous marin) will be on hand to take venturesome visitors down to the bottom of the pool, decorated with photos of fish.
The heated pool with its depth of 1.20 meters is suitable for young and old (no children under 8 will be allowed to participate and all minors must have parental permission).
The diving equipment - wetsuit, fins, mask, and tank – will be supplied.
Once equipped and following a short lesson, divers will spend 20 minutes underwater with their instructor. Each diver will receive a certificate.
This exceptional offer is free of charge to all those visiting the monument; just present your entrance ticket. To sign up, before you visit the Eiffel Tower, go to the swimming pool welcoming tent.
« To turn each tourist into an active guardian of our natural environment, while having fun through a constructive experience, is a goal as high as the Eiffel Tower ! ».
Through this promotion, Mr. Jean-Bernard Bros, Director of Société d’Exploitation de la Tour Eiffel, wishes to convey a strong message in defence of the planet: “At a moment when environmental matters are becoming more and more important, the ones who need to be informed about the future of the Earth and Oceans are the tourists, those travelling across the world exploring it. What better means than this introduction to scuba diving to discover the underwater environment, its beauty and above all its fragile nature?" That is the intent of the Société d’Exploitation de la Tour Eiffel.
