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 respectively.

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 level.

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.”
