Discover Freediving

Objectives

The goal of this experience is to get you diving within minimal time and that you enjoy freediving without your having to commit to a full certification course. No diving experience of any kind is necessary to participate, but you’ll make the most of this session if you’re already comfortable in the water.

If you’re not sure whether you’ll love freediving or not, then this is the best way to get your feet wet.
