Ocean Dreams – take on Freediving!

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

I have known Tina and Bob from Ocean Dreams for over 10 years and whenever freediving was discussed the general response from Nurse Tina was – it’s not natural!  So over the years they have done deep technical diving…. they have done rebreather diving… and lots and lots of scuba diving!  So on this trip when Tina said that they would like to try freediving I almost fell off the boat!  Sabrina and Beth came along to discover freediving too :-)

Didn’t they do well!!!  All passed with flying colours!  Well done and welcome to the quite side 😉
