I was thinking to learn scuba diving, but decided to take a three-day free diving course with Miguel instead. I already knew most of the SCUBA material from reading a book, so I thought free diving would be more interesting since I'd learn a lot more from the experience. Now, one year late, I've learned more than I'd ever expected... More

I couldn't agree more with other reviews. So I won't repeat what people have already said. But I'd like to add something a little more that I personally like. I like that Miguel, the instructor, really knows what he's doing. And he knows exactly how much to push you to get good progress. He neither pushes too hard which might... More

I had my first free diving 'discovery' training last week with Adaman Apnea : one great day with Miguel, I dove at 25m deep, learnt pleinty of new apnea techniques and enjoyed open discussions on this sport with a very professional & highly skilled trainer. I definitely recommend this adress to people seeking for a good free diving training in... More

Miguel is incredibly observant and clearly has a wealth of knowledge. I liked his approach, his humility, his patience and his massive skill set. Without leaving out anything important(especially not safety) he cuts straight to the core issues. I was always amazed at how easily he could tell what i was doing wrong and how to correct it. He pointed... More

TLDR: excellent courses and awesome spot. I wanted to improve myself abit cos I always dive when I snorkel. We didn't have much time so we (me and my girlfriend) managed to attend a short course in the pool and one drift in open water. Have to say for novices like us result was quite amazing, with very simple and... More

An amazing experience. Miguel (the guy who runs the place) was amazing throughout and together with him I managed to get my AIDA 2** certificate. I contacted Miguel last minute through email, and he responded quickly and managed to set up everything in 2 days. His guidance was great when it came to understanding the key things to focus on...

Me and my girlfriend trained with Andaman Apnea first time in december 2012 and we did 2,5 + 2,5 days of training. The location is very well suited for freediving with 30 meters depth at a short walk and swims distance. Around the center are numerous good reefs and greater depths can be found within a short boat trip. Pool... More

I corresponded with Andaman Apnea by email to book the course and got excellent communication back. When in Phuket I got picked up by mini bus and dropped off at the ferry port where I was met. Got the boat over to the little island where the course was carried out. The tuition was great and easy to follow and... More

A short boat ride away from Phuket with all its overcrowded diving sites, Racha Yai is a quiet and rewarding spot for snorkeling and scuba diving. The new Andaman Apnea shop adds freediving to the list of activities: one can learn through several courses if needed, but we were already advanced and it was an ideal spot for safe practice....

I had all kinds of doubts and mixed feelings about freediving before I arrived Andaman Apnea, but after going through a three-day course with Miguel, I was so sure that I would definitely come back here to pursue further in this charming sport. Miguel is a fabulous instructor, who's not only professional and experienced, but he pays attention to the... More
