Level 2 Course
Dive into an adventure
Experience the World Heritage Listed Wet Tropical Rainforest while freediving in a Volcanic Crater lake! This is a unique way of freediving that allows you to take in the sights and sounds of the rainforest while deepening your breath and concentrating on reaching your freedive potential! As our course is conducted in an enclosed crater lake we don’t need to worry about extreme weather conditions and high winds.
We can concentrate all of our energy on becoming more in tune with nature, listening to the sounds of the birds and taking in the beauty around you. This will inevitably help with your relaxation for free diving!
