We tailor the course to suit your needs, ensuring you leave feeling confident and have all the skill and knowledge required to safely take new Freediver's into the water.

Maxine has attained the highest level of Freediving instruction being a PADI Instructor Trainer as well as Molchanov's and Apnea Total. Although she has competed in Freediving competitions and coached athletes, she loves the recreational side of freediving. The misunderstood sport of freediving, otherwise known in the media as being dangerous, impacted her life through opening up different methods of coping and dealing with stress along with injury management in a low impact environment. She has now spread this same joy of freediving to hundreds of students.

We pride ourselves on experience, knowledge and continuous education.
