What is Freediving?

Freediving is a form of underwater diving that relies on a diver’s ability to hold her/his breath until resurfacing, rather than on the use of scuba gear.
There are different ways to practice this sport: by covering distances underwater, going deep or simply floating on the surface.

For whom?

Freediving is a sport based on relaxation and mental control. As such, it is considered as a healthy activity that can be practiced by everyone. Freediving is the most serene way to discover the underwater world. It is also the most natural since human capacity for freediving is on par with some marine mammals.

What for?

Freediving is more common than you think and many sports use its techniques: spearfishing, snorkeling, surf, underwater sports, etc. Freediving is also one of the best activities to partake in exploring the underwater world: without the excessive gear of scuba diving or the bubbles, you get closer to the marine life.
