Although the teacher was good, I would not recommend this school, all they are interested in is your money! No welcome, no goodbye, no feedback. Lack of organisation, expensive and ols wetsuits to rent! If you look for a cheerful experience , don't go thereMore

Drew Herric is the best instructor I'd ever met .Not only he is pecialized in the freediving field but also in his teaching altitude. He like to research and experiment.If you have any problem in learning, he can always find methods to revolve it.

Hello Bloo26, guilty as charged. Our webshop was not updated with the new price which includes now also full insurance for the motorbikes. Our secretaries have to strictly follow procedures so the blame is all on me. Prices are now updated so it can not...More
