A whole new world—believe the five star reviews. Our cruise ship was in Cozumel for a disproportionately short amount of time, so I opted to skip cramming in scuba and try freediving instead. My nephew was able to discover freediving with me, because his mother doesn’t fear it like scuba. Cabana Beach, where Julie teaches, is a great place to relax for an afternoon (private shade cabana with chairs, showers, restrooms, and bar with food and drinks). For only $16 per person, my mother, who is 79, and my sister (neither dive), were able to come with us and enjoy the cabana all afternoon. Julie was welcoming, and forgiving that crowds of cruisers made us a little late. First we learned some basic principles, mostly about breathing (you think you know how, but you’ll never see it the same again). Next we went into the shallows and practiced the pattern we would need to breathe and dive well (eventually;)) Finally, we went offshore and took turns breathing up and going down, with Julie as our safety, still learning as we went. Any healthy person who can equalize can participate in this activity. Julie is so experienced and calming that even when the wind kicked up and the current shifted, my nephew and I stayed relaxed and had a beautiful time. There is nothing like the freedom of the one breath that seems to last forever in the clear blue underwater world of Cozumel. I cannot recommend this experience highly enough.

Amazing experience! Julie is a very knowledgeable, diligent, and passionate instructor. She combines her passion for excellent freediving technique with her love for conservation and the art of mermaiding for a truly unforgettable experience. The step-by-step PADI approach is easy to follow and you’ll be surprised with how much your body can do with the proper technique and knowledge. 10/10 go freediving with Jewels Diver!!!

Free diving course with Julie was an unbelievably beautiful experience! Julie is very knowledgable and passionate, she walks you through everything step by step, at your own pace. You cannot imagine a better instructor! Looking forward to coming back Cozumel and doing some more freediving :) Thank you Julie once again for introducing me to this beautiful sport :)
