Welcome to a world of new experiences
Increase exposure of freediving through delivery of high quality Freedive education while developing an understanding of the ocean. Our Philosophy We see teaching as a calling, a way to enhance someone’s life by sharing meaningful ideas and by developing a sense of wonder. Below you will find a text which beautifully articulates the way we see ourselves as educators.
Getting involved in freediving is easy
The first step is to be passionate about water. the second step is to locate an instructor and go through a Freediving course. this will ensure learning all the important elements of freediving. Our first two courses are recreational by nature which means there is no performance pressure. Instead – you will learn how to relax, breathe, work with a buddy and develop skills which will help you build confidence and with it – bottom time.
Good teaching is as much about passion as it is about reason.
It’s about not only motivating students to learn, but teaching them how to learn, and doing so in a manner that is relevant, meaningful, and memorable. It’s about caring for your craft, having a passion for it, and conveying that passion to everyone, most importantly to your students.
Not all agencies are created equal
There has been a spike in the popularity of freediving in recent years and the big Scuba agencies see the potential. as a result more of them begin to offer freediving programs. Apnea International was established by freedivers for freedivers – we do not teach Scuba and only focus is on the art of breath hold. By doing this we guarantee the quality of our training and of our instructors.
As part of our continued effort to minimise our environmental footprint we have decided to stop printing manuals and move into an “All Digital” system. this will reduce impact caused by paper printing and postage around the globe.
We do not offer plastic certification cards and instead –provide students with Digital certification which are accessible through the student profile.
We are passionate about education. Our education programs focus on marine knowledge, respect and responsibility.
Our accredited trips focus on introducing guests to traditional cultures, their connection to the ocean and all include activities which help in increasing awareness, such as beach clean-ups.
