We’re no freediver factory! At Apnea Revolution, we just want to freedive and have fun, whether we’re learning or teaching. So our courses are kept small, chilled and safe. We run freediving courses throughout the year for all levels of freedivers, from beginners to AIDA 3* qualifications. Safety courses are also run regularly throughout the year.
