Freediving Gili

...Diving on a single breath

FreeDiveGili at Manta Dive was the first Freediving school in Indonesia, based on the island of Gili Trawangan close to Bali. Whether you are interested in competitive apnea, spearfishing, breath-holding for surfing or just improving your comfort in the water for snorkelling, our courses can help you achieve your goals. Freediving is a unique and natural way of experiencing the underwater world, swimming freely and silently and allowing you to get much closer to aquatic life without disturbing it.

Our Freediving Courses include theory sessions, breathing techniques, depth training sessions, fun dives, equipment and course materials.
