Freediving in Indonesia


Quiet, serene and, peaceful are probably adjectives that perfectly describe free diving.

Free diving is the sport of diving while the  diver descends on a single breath of air, holding his/her breath. Many divers or swimmers would have practiced freediving – every time you hold your breath and swim underwater you are actually freediving!

It is also considered as a competition oriented activity. Unlike snorkeling and skin diving, the main goal is to spend as much time underwater as possible. Freediving is also about familiarity, ease, relaxation and energy conservation.

To learn to freedive, you need to find a competent and patient instructor who will guide you through the selection of your gear and who can introduce you to the basic elements of the sport in a step-wise, confidence-building fashion.

If you want to learn how to freedive, here are freediving courses you can join in Indonesia:

Let’s Freedive

  1. Freedive Weh is located on the stunning jungle covered island of Pulau Weh. Nature here is dominant and well preserved, both on land and in the sea, where some of the most gorgeous coral reefs of South East Asia can be found. The bay where our freedive centre is nested has deep, calm and warm waters all year round, making it a perfect location for training at all levels.
    We offer freediving courses from beginner up to instructor level with the most reputable and widely recognized training agencies worldwide, such as AIDA and CMAS (FFESSM). Our focus is on safety and on the highest quality of teaching, so we provide more learning time then most of the other freediving schools (we offer freediving courses for beginners in 3 days and advanced freediving courses in 4 days). We also offer equalization workshops, training programs tailored for athletes, coached sessions for freedivers of all levels, as well as exploration dives on the most interesting dive sites of the island, including WW2 shipwrecks, gorgeous reefs with reef sharks and giant trevallies, and an underwater geothermal hotspring bubbling up sulfuric gases. Our equipment is brand new and perfectly maintained, including freediving gear from Cressi, medical oxygen kit and a sled for no limits disciplines.
    At Freedive Weh we provide personalized coaching and we focus on individual needs, addressing specific problems and dedicating all our time and experience to fix them.
