What an amazing course! I did the beginners course and I loved it. To conquer ones fears and actually have a lot of fun doing it, is priceless. In just 2 days (4 hours each) I managed to peacefully go down to 20 meters. I learned a lot about my body and mind. I realized that my limits extend way... More

Was so delighted to find this school, did my advanced course with Ben and i couldn't have asked for a better teacher, it's hard not to be relaxed around him and when you are relaxed things just run smoothly. I really benefitted from his preference for small class sizes as there was los of time to focus on my expectatiobs... More

We loved the beginners course in free diving with Ben. It was more than awesome. Even it seems scary in the beginning, Ben has the mentality to totally calm you down (or make yourself calming you down) and after trying a few times, you become so much confident that you are having lots of fun under water. You will be... More

I did the 2 day basic free diving course with Ben back in December 2013 and it was awesome. This was the first time I had ever really tried free diving and by the end of the second day was able to dive down to 19 meters and stay under water for 1 min 45 seconds. Even when I was... More

This course teaches you vital breathing and swimming skills that you can apply into swimming, snorkeling and SCUBA. In addition, there is a breathing portion that teaches you how to relax the body. Ben is a great teacher and he is a very good diver. Highly recommended.

Before going to Bocas I was totally new to freediving and had never been able to go below a few meters. But in their two days course I did things that I didn’t know that my body was capable of doing. I thought that the course limit of 20 mts was going to be hard for me to reach, but... More
