Freedive and Photography Workshop6 days retreat from June 22 to 28


Theoretical and Practical Freediving and Photo Lessons.

A week living in the countryside on the island of Menorca, in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea.
All inclusive with vegan menu.
You don’t need to be a pro to join us. It’s a course for people thinking to start in freediving and underwater photography or for beginners that want to improve.
It’s better if you come with an underwater camera and computer to do your own photos and colour retouching. But it’s not essential, you can also learn and enjoy if you come empty handed.

1.550€
