Is Freediving a safe sport?

YES! Freediving is a very safe sport if it is practiced correctly. It is a natural activity, and the human body is very well capable of breath-holding and diving underwater. Taking an officially recognized freediving course will only make you a safer and a more confident freediver.

Accidents happen because of lack of proper training and education. Beware of bogus freediving coaches. Ask questions about their certification so that you will know that you are in safe with them.

What is the difference between Freediving and Scuba Diving?

Freediving, as the name suggests, is diving with complete freedom. A properly trained freediver can ascend and descend as quickly as they like since there are no restrictions. In freediving all you really need is a mask, fins, and a single breath for you to go anytime, anywhere, underwater.

On the other hand, scuba has a lot of complex theory and equipment elements you must know about before you can enjoy it. In scuba diving you must follow a rigorous schedule to go up and down due to the heavy tank you are restricted in how fast you can move and where you can go.

But definitely you can stay longer under the water while exploring the underwater world and at the same time you need less physical requirements.

So, freediving teaches you mostly how to operate and control your body under the water while holding your breath. Scuba diving teaches you how to use SCUBA equipment and breath under water safely.

This is the main difference between the two.

How often you are holding the courses?

We have a team of instructors and start courses nearly every day. Just send us a message and choose dates the most convenient for you.

Is your school open all year long? When is the best time to come?

We are working 12 months a year. You are very welcome to come anytime you want. There is a high season of the island which starts from June to October. During this time you have the chance to see Mola-Mola fish (Moon fish), which attracts divers from all over the world. During high season the water is a bit colder and prices for accommodation a bit higher.

Low season starts from December to February as for all of Bali region. It could rain during the low season. However, Nusa Penida is a dry region, and the weather is cooler than the rest of Bali. The visibility stays on the same level all the year, even in the raining season.
