Apnea Canarias

Apnea Canarias freediving center


Is one of the most recognized freediving schools in the world.


 It was initially established in Radazul (Tenerife - Canary Islands) and since 2008 it has been promoting freediving activities through courses and training sessions. More than 2,000 students came through our school for training sessions or courses, and most of the world class freedivers have gone through Apnea Canarias as part of their annual training.


All this has been possible thanks not only for the excellent freediving conditions we have in Radazul Bay but also because of our facilities and professionalism. In addition to these, the excellent weather of the island all year round and its proximity to Europe makes Radazul one of the best freediving spots in the world.
