Owner description: Blue Immersion is a SSI and AIDA Freediving International School based in Koh Tao Thailand and Dahab Egypt. Freediving is a form of underwater diving that relies on a diver's ability to hold his breath until resurfacing rather than breathing equipment such as scuba diving gear. BREATH HOLD TRAINING will increase your deeper levels of awereness, lung capacity, perception and control over your body. Train with the world's best freedivers, Linda Paganelli National Record Holder (italy), Lotta Ericson World Record Holder (sweden) and Florian Dagoury up and coming star in the Freediving competitive world (french). Located on Sairee Beach, all students start their training in a relaxing, quiet setting, with a beautiful sunrise from the facility. Courses will be conducted in a very relaxed manner, in small groups. Blue Immersion Thailand has 3 spacious classrooms for theory and breath hold exercises, 2 fast fiberglass Catamaran specially design for Freediving, 2 booking offices on Sairee beach for the best student/instructor communication, a diving library for entertainment, a beach terrace for yoga & meditation. Blue Immersion will give you the most of ONE SINGLE BREATH. Nothing is more beautiful than the ocean's peaceful silence and freedom. Free diving promotes health and fitness.

““Inspiring Trip””
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Great course and great crew, I definitely recommend this school to everyone with water in their veins. Best location, quiet part of the beach, no one around, it's very relaxing. I got a lot from the yoga style breathing techniques and find myself doing it when i have a bit of free time to relax and unwind even to relax my heart beat and baby when putting him to sleep. I definitely feel the need to pursue part 2 for more depth, so looking forward to the next trip

“Very good !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

“Where no one has gone before?”

It's been thoroughly described in previous reviews, just adding this one to confirm that Freediving Blue Immersion School with linda, lotta and flo is still top notch.

If you're into surfing, maybe a course is something for you. I learned to be much more at ease underwater, out there in the blue. The breathing (and breath holding) techniques are very helpful and I managed to hold my breath for 3:31 and dived beyond open water scuba limits! Unbelievable.

And...I received a SSI diploma at the end of the course!

“Fantastic experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Took two courses with blue immersion on koh tao in august, and its the best thing i have done for very very long! The instructors and everyone working there was amazing, made me feel safe, and really trust their expertise! Took a class here in Norway after i came back, and that made me even more impressed with the blue-immersoin team. They really know what they are doing, and i would recommend them for anyone without hesitating! Now im planning on how to get back there asap, so i can take the master-course, and maby even go for instructor. the dream now is to be able to work with this, and see the world, both over and under water. :)
Thank you Blue-Immersion, for a fantastic lifechanging experience! hope to see you all again!

““Explore the ocean depths with a amazing team””
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

“Explore the ocean depths with a amazing team”
Whether you are a first time snorkling, surfing or experienced freediver, this course is for everyone who has an affinity with the water. I recently completed my Level 1 and 2 course back to back with a group of friends and loved it. The SSI course is a great mix of theory and practical. The instructors are amazing teachers, very knowledgeable and highly skilled in the water, making you feel completely safe and relaxed when pushing your personal limits without any streess. The yoga component brought the course together for me, learning new stretches, breathing and relaxation techniques that can also be used in everyday life, particularly for surfing.
This course made me realise that cruising the ocean depths on a single breath with nothing but a mask and a pair of fins is one of the best feelings in the world...Thanks Nico
