Freediving, also called breath-hold diving or Apnea, is diving on a single breath of air. It is the most natural way to explore the underwater world.

Simply hold your breath.


Without a scuba tank, you are no longer just an observer, you are part of the ocean. When freediving, you are closer to marine life. Without bulky equipment, noise and bubbles that come with scuba you become just another aquatic creature.

You will be surprised what you can achieve in only a few days.  Diving on one breath is easier for humans than you would expect. Come and see for yourself...

Wake up your inner dolphin!

We are moving...

Freedive Perhentian ran in cooperation with Spice Divers for the last 3 years, which is one of the oldest scuba schools in the Perhentian Islands.


But due to some structural changes we will move to a new location in 2020.


Of course we will try to keep the atmosphere of our school so you can feel like coming home to your family.

Located on Long beach, the bustling center of the Perhentian Islands, we want to remain the calm oasis where you can truly relax, while still being in walking distance from all restaurants, bars, and activities.

We're finding the best place for you!

Preferably we'll be working together with a scuba school again, so if you or your friends want to combine your freediving experience with scuba diving we will be happy to help you with booking a package

See you in Paradise!
