As with all early Lumière movies, this film was made in a 35 mm format with an aspect ratio of 1.33:1. It was filmed by means of the Cinématographe, an all-in-one camera, which also serves as a film projector and developer.
This 38 second film has a very simple plot in which five men dive repeatedly into stormy water. The men walk along a jetty and then dive into the water, only to then swim to the shore line and repeat the process again.
