Did my Apnea Total Advanced course here after doing my Beginner's on Koh Tao 18 months previously. Tex also teaches AIDA, but go for the Apnea Total course, its more informative. Great instruction from Tex & Chris, they helped me achieve an almost 4minute breath hold (another guy in my class did 4mins 30secs) and I dove down to 37m... More

The staff know what they are doing and provide a welcoming relaxed experience. Both Texas and Chris take their time and are willing to really let you figure out your personal rhythm. If you have ever considered trying to Freedive this the place to do it.

I've always been curious about Freediving, so after speaking with Tex via email, I decided to go for it. Best decision I've ever made! Yes, there was some apprehension and nerves before the first dives as I'd never done anything like it before, but Tex is amazing in the way he teaches everything in the classroom and in the water,...

These guys are just great. They are very welcoming, relaxed and take good care of you - in the water and on land. I think Ive never spend more relaxed days than with them. If you are looking for a Freediving school with teachers who love their job, and do not fall into a routine after doing the same thing... More

If you want to get started with free diving, this is the place to be. Tex and Chris are really cool, and its a joy to be with them. I started my beginner there. They spend a lot of attention on each student and there are many questions they have to answer! But they do, and therefore its very easy... More

I went to Utila to scuba dive and fell in love with free diving instead. You gotta try it! I enrolled in the beginner course when my curiosity was piqued after passing the Apnea Total sign every day for almost a month as I walked from my apartment to the scuba shop at which I was doing my dive master....

I first came across this freediving introductory course when researching the Bay Islands as a place for doing my Scuba Padi Rescue Diver course. In the end I did the Scuba course elsewhere but the excited reviews stuck with me. Fortunately, I had a chance to revisit the area and made a point to do the freediving course on Utila.... More

If you come to Utila and don't free dive with Tex and Chris you're missing out one of the best experiences you'll ever have! Not only are they amazing teachers but they're also really genuine and cracking guys. As a result they attract good people so everyone involved at Apnea Total is great. No wonder people come from all over... More

Chris and Tax are really good and I felt really confident due to they were all the time looking me and taking care. 100% recommendable. Also they adapt their schedule to you! The experience is much better than scuba diving. If you have... More

I could not be happier with my experience Apnea Total! I did my Advanced Course, and then followed up with another two and a half weeks of fun diving with Tex, Cat and Chris. The whole team were amazing; very patient, encouraging and motivational. They taught me so much and guided me to challenge myself without ever being pushy about... More
