Activity description

If you have always wanted to enter the peaceful underwater world with light equipment, stay as long as your breath allows it, then freediving is for you!

Apnea is to control your senses and your breath. Whether you choose an initiation or to follow the PADI Freediver training, take your first step towards discovering yourself and your hidden abilities to hold your breath.

For your first session, Planet Ocean school proposes an initiation in a diving pool or in a natural environment, to work apnea in creeks or reefs. The spots vary between 0 and 15 meters deep so that you enjoy the beauty of the seabed of the Atlantic!

The spots
Maro - shipwreck (7 to 15 metres)
Cargo of 90 metres immersed in 2009, on the Spanish coast. The remains of the 50m long compartments make perfect artificial reefs which attracts fish and corals, especially Trigger fish.

Pekachilla - wall (6 to 40 metres)
This wall at large from San Sebastian, is a drop of 6 to 40 metres, with a lot of sealife on the surface.

Aquarium (6 metres)
Last creek before the passage of the figuier cape, its bottom of white sand makes it a very luminous spot.

Baie des Cochons
Naturally sheltered from the wind from west to northwest, this cove is ideal for beginners.
