Level 1: PADI Freediver:


The discoveries of the depth and time of the ocean is only limited by your will to explore it. Freediving is about working of mind and body together.  It’s about discovering oneself. Unlike scuba diving which can be noisy with the sound of the bubbles, freediving is where you can feel the beat of your heart and hear the sound of the ocean. Freediving is also a performance sport. It is about depth, distance and time. All on a single breath. How far can you go?
