Freediving bali

Freediving means holding your breath underwater. By challenging yourself physically and mentally to find inner peace, we experience the ocean in its most natural way without any apparatus. That feeling of freedom under water, makes freediving one of the most growing activities around the world.

When we freedive, we are making use of one of human’s most amazing physical adaptations- the Diving Reflex. When we submerge in water, our body adapts to the breath-hold and surrounding environment in the same way it does with other marine mammals such as seals and whales.

Apnea Bali is a freediving school in Tulamben, East Bali, located within walking distance from the USAT Liberty wreck and plenty of dive spots surrounded by coral reefs. The school was founded by two world class instructors with more than 7 years of experience and is owner of the deepest freediving platform in South East Asia, making it the perfect freediving spot in the region.

We recommend freediving as one of the best ways to discover the unbelievable marine diversity in Bali and Indonesia.
