Free-diving with whales
March 26 - April 1,
April 2 - 8, 2018
700 EUR / pers (flights, transfers, hotel not included)
One of the most important goals of this journey is to meet face-to-face with whales. We cannot explain why we are so much attracted by the giants, why we admire them and feel some sort of respect, peace and harmony. But we know for sure that meeting a whale is one of the most powerful experiences you can have in your life and everyone must try it.
There is no guarantee that whales will share a few moments of their silent and graceful lives with us, but we are going to do our best to make it happen: we’ll choose a right time and a right place, given their migration season and routes, and will have a highly experienced local whale watcher to help us searching whales.
What is guaranteed that is freediving deep water training, morning warm-ups and yoga, swimming exercises in the sunset, beautiful nature and a great company. Come join us!
What is included in the program?
Free-diving lectures for levels of Waves 1, 2, 3, 4 (Russian Free-diving Federation Certificate, recognized by AIDA)
6 days of free-diving with visibility of water from 15 to 50 meters
1 day of rest. Optionally, we can go to a shallow Reef at Pigeon Island - national park in Sri Lanka to see some turtles and sharks
Daily breathing exercises
And of course we'll be searching for whales and for possibility to have a swim with them in the ocean. We will go to the ocean on speed boats in groups of up to 5 people including the instructor. Groups are made intentionally small not to disturb the whales and be able to get as close to them as we can. Our local guide will on which days we will be searching whales and for how long
