Apnea Total Worldwide


The Apnea Total Freediving Organization and Education System has flourished around the world, with our highly experienced Instructors having established their own freediving centers from South America to the Caribbean, Asia and Europe.
These Instructors initially worked intensively at the Apnea Total headquarters in Koh Tao, certifying hundreds of students.

Students will receive a high standard of Apnea Total education and accreditation from the following centers.
