Went to Tamarindo specifically to learn and to get certified in Freediving. Gaulthier was wonderful and extremely knowledgeable. He is passionate, and extremely clear with his instructions. Zen, fun and safe !!!! Met some of the most interesting people through this course.

For someone who hardly swims, this experience gve me the knowledge, skills, and confidence to decrease my anxiety in the water. Gauthier was supportive, patient, and was able to teach divers of multiple levels of experience.
