What is Apnea Diving?
The word apnea is derived from Greek, meaning “breathless”.
Freediving is diving on a single breath without any use of breathing aids (such as diving tank and a breathing system) however, diving equipment such as a mask, weights and snorkel are usually used. The diver inhales air full of his lungs and diving for depth, time or working under the water.
Contrary to what you might think, freediving is safer than scuba diving, and one can dive to great depth after a few days of training.
A natural way to enjoy the beauty of the depths of the sea
Some people consider freediving an extreme sport whose uniqueness is the deep serenity and tranquility that contrasts with all other types of extreme sports. For others it is a natural way to enjoy the beauty of the depths of the sea without any need for heavy and uncomfortable diving equipment, and some experience freediving as meditation and connection to body and mind.
Freediving serves as a basis for a variety of sports such as spearfishing, surfing underwater photography, competitive diving and of course just plain relaxed and fun snorkeling.
