why freediving?

Freediving, breath-hold diving or "apnea", is the most natural way to explore the underwater world. 

Instead of using scuba equipment, freediving education teaches you how to train you body to dive longer and deeper on one breath.

In simple terms; let's bio-hack your body and train your inner aquatic mammal (yes, we all have one).

"I took the AIDA 2 freediving course with Luca having a little scuba and snorkelling experience.


He puts on a great course with very interactive pool and ocean sessions. I felt safe under his watch, which allowed me to relax deeper and explore my own abilities.


Luca does a great job of challenging students, just enough, and stepping back to allow them to find their own way. I feel that this is a unique strength of his - the ability to balance too little or too much input. 


He is a natural teacher. Highly recommended to all my friends."

" Thanks for being an amazing instructor.


Your enthusiasm, care, attention and calm energy created a wonderful first-time freediving experience. 


You are a natural coach and I am inspired to apply the knowledge you shared. "


Marcin Mirski

"I recently took an AIDA 2 course with Luca, and it was a great experience. Luca is a passionate instructor, and is eager to share his knowledge with his students.


As someone who was not initially fully at ease in open water, his approach made it much easier for me to progress and succeed.

Luca always took time to ensure we were comfortable and that we were absorbing the lessons, while keeping safety as his top priority.


I thoroughly enjoyed learning a new and very interesting sport from Luca!"
