Freediving Courses

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be able to glide through the water in total silence, and become one with the ocean and her creatures?  Freediving gives you the opportunity to do just that.

Indigo Scuba offers internationally recognised SSI Freediving Courses – which means you will be taught by qualified instructors who will ensure you receive all the right knowledge and  practical training to become a safe and relaxed free diver.
