The Course

If you love the ocean then you are going to love this. Whether you are a scuba diver already or not, it doesn’t matter!

Free diving or breath-hold diving is the practice of making dives in the ocean on one breath.

You might think that’s crazy and you won’t get long enough but the course will teach you to extend your breath holding capabilities.  You will surprise yourself.

The peace, calm and quiet underwater without bulky and noisy equipment, is freedom itself and you won’t scare the wildlife either.

This is nothing short of awesome!
