A few days ago we talked about what Freediving was and the ability we all have to do it with the guidance of an expert. Today I present you 5 destinations where we will find unique places to practice this sport.
1. The area of the oil platforms of the Gulf of Mexico
“Every construction of the ocean is a magnet for life,” says DJ Strunz, photographer of Riffe International. This point is incredible because of the underwater fauna that we can find in that place. It is dangerous for divers to be in those waters as there are many old pieces of buildings and one must be very careful.
2. Christ of the Abyss on the Italian Riviera, Portofino
Dario Gonzatti, was the first Italian to lose his life diving in 1947 in that area. The Christ of the abyss honors him.
“It’s really impressive to be in front of him,” says Guillaume Nery. “It can be seen from the surface and it’s 10 or 15 meters at most, a distance anyone can dive into.”
3. Wreck of the Kuda Giri, South Male Atoll (Maldives Islands)
Imagine being in a ghost town under the sea. This is what Alex Voyer, diving instructor for eight years in the Kuda Giri, says: “I love this shipwreck because I imagine the life of all the people who were on board”.
The fauna of the area is incredible and you can enjoy a truly unique environment.
4. Dahab (Egypt)
“It’s like the light at the end of the tunnel,” says a person who lived for the first time sinking in that part of the sea. It is a dangerous place but full of colors, it is one of the best places in the world to train in this sport.
4. Bay of Banderas
With one of the most experienced groups on this sport you can get involved and enjoy a unique and incomparable landscape. Around Banderas Bay you can find fauna, flora, people and incredible moments.
