Start your freediving journey from basic theory and dry breath hold practice, through pool experience, up to challenging open water freedives to the maximum depth of 20m!
With the assistance of our experienced instructors, develop your freediving skills in the safest and most relaxing way. We hold the majority of our Level 1 Courses at our freediving centre in Amed, the diving paradise on the north-east coast of Bali. The crystal clear deep waters and rich marine life close to shore are perfect for learning freediving.
