freediving in Raja Ampat


Imagine freediving down to explore the sea… weightless, silent and un-restrained. Free of equipment with no bubbles and noise, it’s just you and the marine life around you as you glide through the water, you are completely relaxed and immersed in the marine world.

Papua Explorers also offers freediving courses and packages*.

This is freediving.

On a single breath you can explore the world’s watery places in the calmest and serene of ways; you can be a part of the marine world, not just a visitor. Join us in a Freedive Course and (re)discover your ability to freedive, all in the pristine marine surrounds of Raja Ampat.

Discover : ½ Day
