Your dream of experiencing the fish and corals in its most genuine form is no longer a fantasy. Freediving is the activity youโ€™re searching for!

Freediving is plunging in the bottom of the sea in one breath without any gear. It has been part of our spearfishers’ culture which has now turned into a leisure activity across the globe.

Sea lovers from different parts of the world visit the Philippines just to learn and train, so make sure you don’t miss out!
