Freediving is the exilirating paractice of discovering the underwater world using only a single breath. It also gives you the chance to look inside yourselves to increase you inner awareness.
Holding our breath in the water naturally leads us to a state of simply being in the moment.
Our Freediving Course is built on the foundation of joy, breath, awareness, relaxation, safety and knowledge. Some Freedivers just do it for fun – to look at the fish and corals or simply to relax. Others want to improve their aquatic skills, concentrating on depth and timings or to overcome fear and build self-esteem. Whatever your motive is, you will find great pleasure in the learning, training and the refined experience of Freediving which also often exposes the hidden potential you can use in your everyday life.
While the technical content of the course is professionally presented, the whole process is meant to be entertaining and in a word ”fun” for the participants!
You will most certainly bond with the ocean and it will be surely be “love at first breath”.
You will learn our finning technique – how to propel thorough the ocean, increase your breath hold capacity, ability to both relax and focus, equalization, and of course safety, which is paramount. In short we use the term -Aquaticity.
You will have a complimentary Private Consultation with our Freediving Instructor, before starting the course. After the basic course is completed, Freediving sessions can be taken ad libitum and of course we are always on hand to help with further techneques as needed.

Soneva Fushi is the ultimate in barefoot luxury with a range of secluded private villas all with their own beach gardens. Soneva Fushi is set in the remote Baa Atoll in the Maldives with access to some of the best dive spots in the world. Soneva are the pioneers of ’intelligent luxury’ in the Maldives; nowhere else evokes the Robinson Crusoe style better than this exemplary resort. The resort is set on the privately owned tropical island of Kunfunadhoo in Baa Atoll. It can be reached by a scenic 30-minute seaplane flight from Malé. Apart from the crystal clear waters, white beaches and tropical climate, the island’s unusually rich vegetation offers a unique natural experience.
The very spacious and stylish villas are built from wood and palm thatch, beautifully furnished with natural materials yet containing every conceivable luxury and they are nestled on the palm-fringed beaches that lead to the azure lagoon contained within a coral reef. The service is faultless and the food divine, although it is the sense of privacy that comes from having only 65 villas on an island a mile long that continues to make Soneva Fushi one of our favourites. Central to the property is the Spa experience. The Soneva Fushi Spa has a large reflecting pond and waterfalls which calmly set the tone for soul therapy.
