We are ocean people, we connect you to the ocean, for good.
We yearn for salty sea days and the stillness of the deep ocean, and we’re passionate about sharing that with others. We also want to make sure that our presence has the lightest of footprints on the ecosystems we visit, as well as respecting and protecting the creatures of the sea.
We seek adventure and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. However, we believe that this can be achieved both as a novice diver experiencing the view just below the surface, as well as the avid pro who loves to push his or her boundaries 50m into the dark deep waters.
We believe that when learning from a good instructor, the art of freediving is simple and is a tool to explore your body’s aquatic ability, the physiology of the human body underwater with the impressive mammalian dive response we share with whales, dolphins and seals.
Freediving is often confused with a high octane sport, but the reality of taking in one breath, stilling the mind and body, and gently exploring the ocean life offers a tranquillity second to none.
“It’s the silence that is most startling. In a dark blue Indian Ocean, raked by shafts of subtropical sunlight, I’m swimming alongside a cluster of at least twenty joyfully cavorting dolphins. They dip, rise, shimmy, twist and circle around me, but not a single sound disturbs the deep peace. If the silence surprises, so does the freedom. I hadn’t expected, after just 24 hours’ instruction, to be seven metres beneath the waves, powered by a single breath and unencumbered by tanks or tubes, gliding within feet of these agile mammals.”
