Holding your breath while exploring the Atlantic Ocean.
Freediving or apnea is the sport, science or art of holding your breath while being underwater. Many of us are familiar with snorkelling or scuba diving. Snorkelling is usually on the surface and freediving simply involves holding your breath, diving down and swimming around under water. It can be 1 metre deep or 50 metres deep and for a few brief seconds or minutes at a time.
We take the view that you have two types of freediver competitive and recreational but it’s hard to categorise this sport in to simple types. Most people fall into both camps anyway.
Recreational is just that, the diver enjoys the liquid element and doesn’t worry how deep they are going or how long they are staying under. They simply enjoy the relaxed feeling, the sights and silence of being under water.
