As kids we all see how long we can hold our breath, right? If you're really stubborn (with an equally stubborn brother to beat), you might approach 2 minutes. But you're pretty sure you're about to die at that point, right? Wrong!

Freediving is all about facing things that you didn't think you could do. It's about pushing past "I don't want to do that," but learning to stop before the point that it's unsafe. Freediving is facing your self-imposed limitation, facing your fears, and facing the deep. It's also facing fishies so close that you're almost kissing.

And there's no better, safer, and more fun place to learn Freediving than with Flavia and Pepe at Big Blue. Combine the competence of instructors who are both National Champions in their home countries with experience as teachers and an intense love of the ocean. Freediving is about relaxation and fun. Flavia and Pepe's love of the sport is so infectious that it's impossible not to fall in love with Freediving.

Flavia and Pepe are phenomenal teachers. They carefully guide their students through mastering the skills of Freediving, from how to use a snorkel (that was me!) to advanced Freediving techniques for going radically deep. Their patience, care, and attention helps each individual student have the safest and most relaxed experience possible.

Dive with Big Blue. You might just discover a stronger and braver inner you.

Flavia and Pepe are two highly experienced freedivers who have recently opened their school within the Big Blue Dive Resort.

The class was small with a great attention to detail, both Flavia and Pepe are able to use examples from their years of experience to illustrate the theory. We then went to the beach to practice relaxation techniques and breathing. Although myself and the other students came from a wide variety of backgrounds each of us made significant progress with each exercise. In pool we were able to practice our buoyancy, get used to using the long fins, and the small masks preferred by freedivers. The next day we went out to the ocean, we were nervous and excited but Flavia is also an experienced yoga instructor. She calmed us down with some stretching and breathing exercises. They also have the luxury of having their own properly covered boat and not just a long tail. In the water we built on what we had learned in the pool and each of us worked through the learning process with Flavia giving feedback after each dive. By the end of the day we each had made improved massively and all wanted to continue with our training. It was a great experience that would recommend to anyone!
