FOUNDER
Sophie Perolari

Sophie is a young ocean enthusiast, videographer and freedive instructor. From a very young age she spent most of her time exploring and freediving around the pristine coasts of the Seychelles Islands.

Sophie who is an all-time lover of the sea and environment ventures to share her knowledge and inspire others to fall in love and connect with the underwater world.

"Freediving is more than just a sport; it’s a lifestyle. People are drawn to the depths of the ocean for a variety of reasons. Some seek to improve their fitness, connect with the sea, master their bodies, manage stress, achieve a sense of accomplishment, or blend seamlessly with marine life. Others dive to experience unparalleled freedom, find peace and tranquility, or closely observe coastal ecosystems. Regardless of the motivation, one thing is certain: once you begin, you will feel a profound desire to protect and cherish the ocean, making it an integral part of your life"
