chat freediving school instrcutor students

Located at ‘la Concepcion Cove’ near Tongo Point, we welcome instructors with their students, deep divers for training or coaching and beginners for courses. Priority is given to people staying longer term. The place is perfect to relax or even shoot genuine pictures with a pretty background and a group of smiling divers having a nice chat. Actually, we chose this area mainly for its diving conditions. The north of Badian bay is sheltered, with depth and little current.

THE SCHOOL

THE POOL

FREEDIVING SPOTS

A

Static and dynamic apnea sessions can be done at the school in a calm and shallow area, just before the drop off. 100meters from the shore we have 2 moorings placed at -40m and -55m. The current follows the tide and is rarely strong so we can use these anchors to teach in good conditions.

PRETTY BOAT

B

For deeper dives or more comfort, we drift dive. The boat picks us up at the school and drops us a few hundred meters from the shore where the depth goes down to -150m+. Going with the current, the diving line is straight, the freefall to. The boat follows 200meters from us, ready to come whenever we call it.
