Freediving enables you to explore freely and discover our magical underwater world. Freedivers, regardless of age, have the opportunity to experience the ocean like never before!
So why choose Big Blue? Big Blue Freediving is located on the islands most popular beach, known as Sairee, our freediving school is within a resort (Big Blue Diving) and if you train with us, based on availability, accommodation is free!
