OUR FREE DIVING CENTRE
Air Sub service has been offering courses in free diving since 1995. We have also had the pleasure of being involved in organising two of Umberto Pelizzari’s successful world record attempts in Villasimius:
In July 1995 he set the record of minus 72 metres with constant weight and minus 105 metres Variable weight. In
1996 he regained his records by diving to minus 110m in constant weight and minus 131 Variable no limits.
The free diving centre instructors are experienced and hold PAID freediver and Apnea Accademy qualifications while the centre itself has all the equipment you need for sale or hire.
With our free diving centre It is possible to free dive with a rope to a variety of depths or to enjoy a naturalistic free dive in the Marine park of Villasimius.
Air Sub invites you to try first hand Umberto Palizzari’s philosophy of ‘Breathe and Relax’, a combination of control, discipline and inner strength that are at the heart of the Apnea Academy’s teaching. If you have always wanted to enjoy the oceans in silence and to push yourself, free diving is for you.
