“Freediving is the most direct and intimate way to connect with the ocean.” James Nestor, DEEP.

Freediving in Mexico

Freediving allows you to discover places you’ve never imagined. It takes you deep into your mind and body. By submerging into the water your body state changes into a more aquatic mode. Your heart rate slows down, your body relaxes, allowing you to hold your breath longer than you ever imagined.

We offer internationally recognized AIDA freediving courses.  The theory and practical exercises inside these courses have been developed by the best instructors and competitors worldwide.

If you already know how to freedive, we can be your guide to explore the underwater world.  Swim with the largest fish in the world.  Freedive with friendly sea lions.  Discover beautiful reefs and Mayan mystique cenotes in Tulum and the Yucatan Peninsula. We have custom adventures to fit your personal preferences!

The Gulf of California, also known as the Sea of Cortez, is one of the five most biodiverse marine ecosystems in the World. The reason for its biodiversity is:

The variety of habitats (mangroves, coastal lagoons, rocky and coral reefs, Hydrothermal vents, among others).

The variety of weather and the great currents that emerge from the depths enrich the entire sea column with nutrients that feed all kinds of marine life. Some people call the Sea of Cortez, “The Mexican Galapagos”.

Come join us in La Paz, Mexico and learn to freedive in the Sea of Cortez, once called ‘The aquarium of the world’ by Jacques Cousteau. He also said, “the best way to observe a fish is to become a fish”.  Freefall Academy is a place to explore your aquatic potential, challenge yourself, and experience the freedom and weightless joy that is freediving. Come dive with us and let your body and mind feel like the ocean is your home. Become a fish.
