For several months now, a new sport has been gaining popularity among fans of the sea on our little island: freediving. Tainos Free Diving was founded in March 2022 by Florian Mioni, an instructor from the International Association for the Development of Apnea (AIDA), to give divers the opportunity to explore our waters from a different angle “The Big Blue* has always sparked a certain fascination, but you shouldn’t forget that this sport requires preparation and a professional instructor, even if you’re an experienced diver.

There are courses available to work on breathing techniques and to help you hold your breath underwater for longer. This sport is regulated by strict safety measures and you can expect to really push your mental limits, thus allowing your body to gradually slip into a state of total relaxation.

Thanks to the exceptional marine environment around St. Martin, freediving is a highly enjoyable activity for everyone, no matter the level of skill. Treat yourselves to this moment of pure happiness in the silence of turquoise waters and see a whole other side to the Friendly Island!
