Our Instructors

Our freediving instructors have been teaching freediving in Toronto since 2006. We have been safety divers at world records and world championships. This means we have guided hundreds of people into the underwater world on breathhold.

  1. I’m very interested in learning more about freediving. I haven’t been able to find out much about classes or clubs in my area (NY/NJ) — am I missing something?

    1. You can check with: http://www.usfreediving.org/ who should be able to point you to training classes in the US.

      We will be creating freediving classes here in Toronto next year and will make sure to post it here when we do.

      You can also check out the club we belong to: http://www.freedivetoronto.com, which would welcome you to one of our trial nights

  2. Hi,

    I am an experienced freediver in Toronto and would like to find some good spots to go freediving from the shore (anywhere near Toronto, up to 4 hours drive)

    I’ve heard Parry Sound or Tobermory but I’d like to know more precise details (where exactly to dive from, what to see, how deep)

    Would really appreciate any tips

    Cheers,
    Ben
