Freediving is defined as the discipline where you dive to different depths either in the sea or in a pool, holding your breath, without help from any breathing device.
At Deep People we know from experience that people freediving for the first time don’t usually have their own equipment. That’s why every course includes rental of wetsuit, mask, snorkel , fins and weights.
Of course, you are also welcome to bring your own equipment and use it during the course!
