Welcome to our AIDA & Molchanov Freediving School, where we are passionately dedicated to unlocking the boundless potential within each individual through the art of freediving. Our mission is to foster a deep connection between humans and the ocean, inspiring a profound respect for marine life and the environment. We envision a world where freediving becomes more than just a sport, but a transformative experience that empowers individuals to explore their inner depths and rediscover the harmony of nature. At our school, safety and education are paramount, and our experienced instructors provide a nurturing and supportive environment for students to learn and grow. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced diver, our goal is to help you embrace the magic of the underwater realm and awaken a sense of wonder that will stay with you for a lifetime. Join us on this extraordinary journey, as we dive into the depths of self-discovery and celebrate the beauty of the ocean together.

"Freediving is a way of life. There are so many different reasons why some of us want to explore the big blue. Whether it's because you want to increase fitness, be at one with the ocean, master your body, to manage stress, feel accomplished or blend in with our marine life. Some of us freedive to experience the ultimate feeling of freedom, find peace and tranquility and to observe our coastal ecosystems more closely. Whatever it may be, I promise you, when you get here, you too will want to protect what you love and begin living for our ocean."
