Free-diving in Camiguin

Philippines Freedive 2012

Free-diving is diving down without the use of heavy scuba equipment. Just by holding your breath.
With special training and preparation nearly everybody can learn how to hold his breath. And it doesn’t take long. 2-3 days and you will be able to hold your breath for 2-3 minutes. Some people even can hold their breath for 4 minutes after short training.

Again, the Camiguin Action Geckos do it. From May 21 to 27 they organize Open Water Freediver Courses with Freediving Philippines
