Profile description:

"The scuba diver dives to look around, the freediver dives to look inside." (Umberto Pelizzari)

My name is Jean, Frenchman born in Switzerland travelling the world to discover the ocean and its depth.

I discovered freediving as a kid, when I lived in Conakry, Guinea. After freediving for 10 years in the U.A.E, I became a freediving instructor with SSI (Scuba Schools International).

Eager to discover more about freediving, I gathered experience all over the world, learning and exchanging with renowned Freedivers.

I am keen on sharing my passion and take you on a safe, fun and breath-taking adventure.


Holding your breath is natural, in contrast to popular belief. When freediving, you merge and become one with the aquatic environment through your diving reflex, literally like a dolphin. Learn to focus, master your breathing and heart rate to enjoy and perform in freediving, and as well approach every-day situations with a new found spirit.

The proposed activity is SSI Freediving Level 1, in English, French or German. After this course, you will be able to hold your breath for 2 to 3min and reach depth up to 20m, on a single breath.

Program and duration of the Freediving Level 1 course:
- 1 to 1 online introduction session (1 hour)
- Theory: 3hours
- Pool session: 2hours
- 1 sea session: 5hours
All steps above will depend on the student’s learning curve.

1 to 1 online session:
We will meet online and discuss the above program in details.

The learning will be done online thanks to the SSI digital training platform/material. Additional 1 to 1 classes will be held online with me to cover the different chapters.

Pool session:
It will happen at Hamdan Sports Complex in Dubai. We can also look at the option to cover the pool skills on the beach shore depending on your preference.

Sea session:
We usually do it in Fujairah, depending on weather and sea conditions. It will be organized as soon as it is possible and safe.

Important notice:
When you book this course, you will see “duration 1 hour”. This refers to the 1st time we will meet online. The additional time (10 hours) needed to cover the whole theory, pool and sea sessions are included in the price mentioned and will be organized together when possible and according to availability. The price also includes SSI Freediving Level 1 registration, digital learning kit and certification, pool access and boat trip.

Your experience will be valid for 12 months (instead of 6) from purchasing date.

Once certified, you will have lifetime online access to your digital theory learning kit on SSI platform.

Looking forward to meeting you and start your freediving experience together.
