Join Steve Millard one of the UK’s most well-known and respected Freediving trainers who has been in the watersports industry for over 25 years.
Malta is regarded by the freediving dive community as one of the best places in the Mediterranean to freedive as it has great visibility, plenty of sunshine, loads of fascinating wrecks, and superb underwater topography. It is suitable for all levels.
