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).
spearfishing & harvesting?
Once you've learned how to safely dive on breath-hold, learning how to get their own seafood is a dream for many ocean lovers.
Spearfishing/harvesting is the most cruel-free, responsible and eco-friendly way to eat seafood. If you do it right, and safely of course.
Sea to Sky Freediving & Spearfishing was founded by Luca Malaguti in 2018. Luca is a Molchanovs Master Instructor and Canadian Record Holder.
His personal best depth is -84 meters (-275 feet) in bi-fins technique, which is his specialty and favourite along with spearfishing. Luca is currently one of the deepest Canadian freedivers.
Freediving is for anyone, and Luca loves to teach from complete beginners to advanced depth coaching. Everyone is welcome to learn how to freedive with us.
We're proudly based out of Vancouver, BC and Calgary, AB so make sure to check out our schedule to find a suitable event for you!
benefits of freediving
Freediving answers the question:
"How do I go down there without all that scuba equipment?"
Freediving education is also used in surfing, yoga and mountain sports like trail running, climbing or alpinism.
Freediving is the first step to safely learning how to spearfish and harvest.
This sport will also give you bulletproof lungs, increase your ventilation capacity and breath-hold.
Freediving teaches you self-confidence in the water, awareness of your body and improves your overall health substantially.

"I took the 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. "
"I recently took a freediving 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!"
