About the Course
Freediving is the most natural and serene way to explore the depths of the oceans with minimal impact.
Anyone who has held their breath underwater has free dived. However, free diving is not simply about seeing how long you can hold your breath or how deep you can go on a single breath.
You have to create the right attitude and pay attention to the limits of your body and mind. The true appeal of freediving is in the silence and calm it brings to people’s hectic lives.
Our intro to freediving is a 1 day experience program where you learn how to:
• Safely extend breath hold time
