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 having trouble equalizing the pressure in my ears Ben was able to help me modify my technique to allo me to continue diving safely. I highly recommend this course.

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 on the contrary I felt good going down.

The best part of the course for me was that I learned how to relax, the instructor was during the whole time helping me and making me feel relaxed and safe.

On the second day the rain was pouring down and I assumed it was going to be less pleasant, but the truth is that I didn’t even get bothered by the rain. If you are in Bocas and don’t know what to do when the rain won’t stop I would recommend to try this out. I am so glad I decided to sign up for this course.
