What is Freediving?
Freediving also called breath-hold diving or Apnea, is diving on a single breath of air without the use of artificial breathing equipment. It is the most natural way to explore the underwater world. Without any breathing apparatus, you are no longer just an observer, you are part of the Ocean. When freediving you are closer to marine life. Without bulky equipment, noise and bubbles that come with scuba you become just another aquatic creature. Freediving is connected to many other activities such as yoga and meditation. Relaxation, mental strength and self knowledge is imperative for freediving. It will also improve your skills as a spearfisher or breath-hold for surfers caught in a wipe-out. Not to mention making snorkeling a lot more fun. Freediving is a journey to discover not only the Ocean but also your inner self. Anyone can enjoy freediving regardless of age or fitness level, given the right knowledge and practiced with the correct safety procedures. At Apnea Koh Phangan Freediving School you will learn to train your body and mind to dive with confidence and comfort. Dive to depths you never imagined possible. Join us for a more personal experience and discover your true potential.

[Lukas] knows exactly what each of the students needs in order to improve and gather confidence. He helped me to get the best out of myself. It’s one of the best experiences I have ever had!

Курс фридайвинга дал мне уникальный опыт познания себя. Уходя на глубину, открывались и прорабатывались страхи,очищались мысли. Ум говорит “давай наверх, нужно дышать!”, но факт в том, что кислорода хватает и можно быть под водой раза в 2-3 больше. Большое спасибо Лукасу и Михао за обучение!

During the whole time I felt very save, since Lukas has a lot of experience and always knew what I was capable of doing. Even though I would have never thought so beforhand I actually made it to 20 meters!
It was a great experience and I continued freediving back home in Germany.
