DISCOVER A NEW AND SILENT WORLD, WITH ONLY ONE DEEP BREATH...
"Apnea diving is the oldest and most original form of diving"
To swim like a dolphin or to glide weightless through the endless blue ocean is how you feel when you free dive!
When practicing freediving you enjoy the beauties of the underwater world in a relaxed atmosphere, while at the same time you promote your health and fitness.
Whether in 5 meters deep, 15 meters, or even further down, freediving is a suitable activity for all ages! Enjoy nature at its purest state and the lightest feeling you can imagine, undisturbed from breathing echos and heavy equipment.
