Day two was a fun day in a shallow, protected bay over a wreck and an opportunity to explore a nearby sheltered rocky gully with resident moray eel. Boat transport to and from the dives was... More

For anybody willing to learn freediving, and anybody willing to improve their freediving skills, We Freedive is definitely amongst the very best school you can find. I arrived in Phuket early January 2017 with a level 3 SSI certificate and I had followed one year before a forty days intensive "master training" in Koh Tao... I considered myself a quite... More

The lessons contained a well balanced mix of theory and practice. Richard has the ability to quickly figure out how to get his students to the next level of being a... More

Whilst planning my trip to Thailand I wanted to do some free diving, and after a search online I came across We Freedive and thought it would be nice to finally get some coaching on free diving with the aim to get past the barriers I have experienced in the past. My ultimate goal was hoping I would get past... More

Great freediving school. Our instructor Pete Botman was very professional and friendly and took great care of us on the 3 day course. We learned a lot and are now equipped with the skills needed to practice this sport safely. Freediving is an amazing journey, both within the water and within yourself. Highly recommend this school!!

It is my second time that I freedive with WE FREEDIVE. Every time I do approx. 10 lessons. I have chosen to stay in a hotel in Raway only because I am very close to WE FREEDIVE.

Did my Instructor course there. At the beginning I thought that 30 days for that would be too much and I was looking for more affordable. But as they advertise it, they have "Quality education". Meaning if you are ready to pay for a few extra dollars, you will get your money worth. I learned all about how to teach... More
