Dusit Thani Maldives has opened an
internationally approved free-diving centre in the Maldives.
Free-diving is a form of underwater diving
that relies on the diver's ability to hold his or her breath until
resurfacing without the use of scuba gear.
Dusit Thani Maldives’ free-dive centre
has joined forces with Apnea Total, a globally renowned
free-diving organisation. The Apnea Total Free-diving Education
System and Standards are followed at the centre and guests will be
provided Apnea Total certifications that are recognized worldwide.
Resort guests will train under the supervision
of highly experienced free-dive instructors who have themselves
worked and trained under record-holding free-divers. Additionally,
the centre boasts world-class Cressi equipment and the rental cost
of these is included in the course price.
The center offers all levels of Apnea Total
courses: Free-Diver Basic, Advanced Free-Diver, and Free-Diving
Master, each lasting 2 days, 3 days and up to 5 weeks
The Basic course will equip guests to dive safely
and comfortably down to 20 meters on a single breath and the
Advanced course equips guests to dive down to 40 metres below sea
Thanos Lionsatos, Director of Sales
and Marketing, said, “Free-diving is a phenomenal water sport to offer
guests at the resort, especially when we are blessed with such
stunning marine biodiversity due to being located within the
UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. This new initiative is a reflection of
our continued pursuit of expanding our portfolio of guest services
at Dusit Thani Maldives.”
