I am hooked !

17.06.2019 by H. Jegoux report

I was vaguely interested in apnea diving but never tried before. I hesitated a lot before taking the course but when I told my travelling friend about it, he was really excited! So we went... It was one of the most amazing experience in my life ! The staff (our teacher was Matteo) was great, knowledgeable, friendly, gave us a lot of advices and gently helped us going through our self boundaries. It is so interesting how I was stopping myself for no real reason and within a few dives, I did things I had no idea were possible for me, and all in a very calm way. I am so hooked ! And the top on the cherry... we had 2 whales visiting our class !!! Unbelievable animals... I can't wait to go back and dive ! And learn more and more...

New freediver junkie

23.08.2018 by Carlos report

I took the freediver course last week with JP and John as instructors, totally worth it! In just 2 days we were perfectly able to dive to 20m and I felt a serious improvement of my lung capacity. Breathing and relaxation techniques that they taught us go beyond diving, very usefull if you are also into meditation or just to learn an effective way to control daily work stress. I strongly recommend it if you're looking at something different than scuba diving. Thanks again to all the proffesional, dedicated and cheerful staff of Apnea Total! Carlos

Excellent!

11.06.2018 by Mathias Vigh report

Last week I attended Apnea Total's freediving courses (beginner and advanced) and I was NOT dissapointed! I reached all my goals with the help of JP, Arnaud, Adam and the rest of the team... 30 meters and more than 5 minuts with the static breathholding techniques. Excellent team and very nice and new equipment. Worth a lot more than what you pay! Thank you very much!

Apnea Total are the BEST

09.06.2018 by Steve Williams report

Set a goal for my 59th birthday , and the crew at Apnea Total made it happen, tagging 30m in a chilled and peaceful manner. The instructors, facility’s, equipment are the best in Koh Tao if not Thailand...

A great first apnea experience coached by friendly professionnals

05.06.2018 by Ronny report

I took my freedive 1 course with Apnea Total in May 2018 and really loved it. I immediately felt comfortable and properly coached by Anne and Aven and, thanks to them, achieved goals I didn't think I was capable of. A real experience in a relaxed and really friendly atmosphere. I definitely recommend Apnea Total, if you are considering giving apnea a try, this is the place, no doubt. Enjoy!

Inoubliable!

01.06.2018 by Karine Jannot report

J'ai suivi sur 2 jours les cours de freediver avec Apnea Total à Koh Tao (avril 2018). L'accueil de Cami donne le ton, son enthousiasme, sa passion, son écoute, ses explications et son professionnalisme ont déjà été un rayon de soleil pour mettre d'emblée de côté toute éventuelle appréhension. C'est une experience inoubliable et hors du commun où l'on découvre que le fait de ne pas respirer peut ne pas être anxiogène. Les techniques de respiration, simples, permettent ce que l'on pourrait considérer comme un dépassement de soi alors que l'on en est tous capable. Un sentiment de plénitude vous envahit lors de la descente (jusqu'à 20 mètres), j'avais juste envie de rester indéfiniment dans le monde du silence, au cœur de ce bleu intense. Les instructeurs incarnent à la perfection le monde de l'apnée et sa zénithude. Je n'ai pas assez de vocabulaire pour décrire à quel point ils ont été bienveillants, généreux et pédagogues (le mot est faible, c'est plus que ça). Moments magiques et surprenants, de ceux où l'on découvre un monde inconnu pourtant si accessible. Prévoyez quelques jours avant de refaire surface car cette expérience hors du commun vous menera vers d'autres horizons. Un énorme merci à Cami et Bastien sur la terre ferme et à Thomas et Ismaël au cœur de l'océan. Cette expérience est gravée à jamais dans ma memoire, je ne peux que vous inciter à rejoindre sans hésitation l'exceptionnelle équipe d'Apnea Total. I followed on 2 days freediver courses with Apnea Total in Koh Tao (April 2018). The welcome of Cami sets the tone, his enthusiasm, his passion, his listening, his explanations and his professionalism have already been a ray of sunshine to put aside immediately any possible apprehension. It's an unforgettable experience where you discover that not breathing can be stress-free. Breathing techniques, simple, allow what could be considered a surpassing of oneself while one is all able. A feeling of fullness invades you during the descent (up to 20 meters), I just wanted to stay indefinitely in the world of silence, in the heart of this intense blue. The instructors perfectly embody the world of apnea and its zenith. I do not have enough vocabulary to describe how they have been benevolent, generous and pedagogical (the word is weak, it's more than that). Magical and surprising moments, from those where we discover an unknown world yet so accessible. Plan a few days before resurfacing because this extraordinary experience will take you to other horizons. A huge thank you to Cami and Bastien at the shop and to Thomas and Ismael in the heart of the ocean. This experience is engraved forever in my memory, I can only encourage you to join without hesitation the team of Apnea Total Karine
