What is Free Diving ?

Freediving is simple. A freediver relies on a single breath of air to explore the undersea world. Moving gracefully without wasting energy, a freediver can spend minutes underwater and experience the ocean as any other marine mammal does. Free from cumbersome equipment, a freediver can sneak up on a turtle, or glide to the bottom for a meeting with a manta ray.

To get started, all you need is a basic knowledge of freediving safety, a buddy to dive with, equipment and a few tips on technique. We offer freediving courses, from beginner level to instructor training, through A.I.D.A. - the most recognized and respected international freediving organization. Freediving on Lanta’s dive sites is an incredible experience not to be missed!

The key to freediving is learning how to relax underwater.

Recreational freediving runs the spectrum from snorkeling in shallow water, to making deep dives to see things beyond the range of recreational scuba diving. However, the motivations and activities for recreational freediving are much the same as for recreational scuba. The disadvantage, of course, is that your time on the bottom is limited.

There are several advantages, however, to exploring the underwater world without tanks:

- Less equipment means you can get the diver to more locations
- No bubbles means fish are less afraid of the diver
- No regulator noise enables the diver to hear fish, boats and other sounds
- Movement along the bottom is effortless due to reduced drag
- You will visit another dimension where you can move around freely and become one with the sea

Along with the exploration of the underwater world comes the inner exploration of sensations and personal limits. Many people enjoy freediving for the feeling of sinking into the depths and floating back to the surface.

Others enjoy the sensation of their heart slowing down as the diving reflex takes hold, or enjoy performance based freediving as a challenge; competing in various disciplines.
