Barefoot Yacht Indonesia has the pleasure to offer you freediving liveaboards in Indonesia – in Bali, Gili Islands, Komodo, and as far as the Moluccas and Raja Ampat. We offer scheduled cruises for small groups of certified freedivers on freediver-friendly boats. The boats have the essential knowledge and equipment to provide cruises and routes suitable for buddy teams of apneistas, along with other guests.
Moreover, Barefoot Yachts Indonesia offers special freediving charters and private yacht charters for groups, including freediving coaching, depth training, freediving courses of all levels, and special workshops with one of our local freediving instructors. For island-based freediving courses, training, and coaches, we are happy to refer you to one of the freediving centers in Bali or the Gili Islands.
Freediving or apnea diving essentially means holding your breath underwater. By challenging yourself physically and mentally while freediving, you experience the ocean in its most natural way with minimal support from equipment. The natural feeling of freedom and discovery underwater makes apnea diving one of the fastest-growing water activities in the world.
When we are submerged in water, we are making use of one of human’s most astonishing physical adaptations- the mammalian diving reflex. Our body adapts to the breath-hold and ocean environment in the same way as other marine mammals, such as seals and dolphins, do – a sensational feeling.
All freediving courses are taught by certified instructors of recognized federations: SSI, AIDA, and PADI. The course structure may differ slightly with each federation, but the water and learning experience, however, is the same with all federations.
The basic freediving course (Level 1) is for everyone. From people with a lot of water experience to those with almost none, this course is an essential introduction to exploring the ocean’s depth in comfort and safety. There is no focus on depth in itself, but the emphasis of the course is on technique, comfort, and fun.
Acquire the essential skills, technique, knowledge, and experience required to conserve air, equalize properly, and dive safely. By the end of this course, you’ll feel safe and comfortable when freediving to depths of up to 20 meters. Although this might sound difficult to achieve in only a couple of days, you’ll be surprised by what our experienced team of freediving instructors can do for you.
