Swimming is definitely something that shouldn't be missed while on vacation in the Maldives, where underwater sights rival pleasant seashores above the water. Turtles, beams, sharks, moray eels, and schools of brilliantly coloured fish are hiding on the reefs and in the island's surrounding tidal pond.

Swimming will typically look down at the underwater world, but swimming should not stop there. People who want to get a closer look at marine life and swim with fish will probably really enjoy diving because it's hard to resist the urge to be a part of the vibrant world. A curious swimmer's signature action is to dive down below the surface of the water; this is where the sport of freediving originates.

Introduction to Freediving (Apnea)

Introduction to Freediving (Apnea)

What lies ahead? Jumping Focus instructors teach visitors who need to learn the fundamental freediving skills, techniques, and skills necessary to enjoy the plunge deeper under the surface of the sea. Any swimmer is capable of free plunging, also known as apnea or breath-holding jumping. This gathering is merely an introduction to the world of freediving; it is not a course.

What's the point of this? Visitors first practise these tricks and tips in the tidal pond for a while before taking their skills to deeper locations. Students are frequently surprised by what they can accomplish after just one lesson with a friendly swimming instructor.

How is it being used? Freediving enables tourists to get closer to marine life, which is especially helpful for taking pictures, and to more carefully investigate reefs. The opportunity that freediving provides swimming enthusiasts who need to get closer to fish and other marine life and need to swim among fish rather than observe from above, will treasure it. Although the underwater world initially surprises swimmers' perspectives, it is especially amazing when viewed through the eyes of fish.

The prelude to free plunging costs $50 and lasts for roughly 1.5 hours. During this time, guests will have the opportunity to advance their swimming skills.

The friendly and accommodating underwater assistants at Prodivers will always be happy to show visitors the hidden sights of the Maldives, whether from the surface of the water or while freediving, regardless of your swimming ability. Accommodations like Kuredu, Komandoo, Hurawalhi, Lily Beach, and Vakarufalhi offer free diving lessons.
