About Us

We are teaching freediving in Dahab, a small Bedouin town located on the Red Sea, the south of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt. We conduct AIDA freediving courses, individual freediving training and perform underwater photo shoots. Diving along reefs and relaxing in the desert are our favourite activities as well.

Our main goal is to teach you how to dive easily and safely. We believe that freediving should be fun and bring you pleasure. Thus the main focus is on sensations and maximum relaxation. We endeavour to do everything without haste and fuss - like a wise turtle that doesn't run wide-open everywhere, but at the end of the day, it'll be where it's supposed to be.

Dive like a turtle ;-)

Sergii Kravtsov

AIDA Freediving Instructor sinсe 2014, Sinai Desert Sherpa and Deep Relaxation Sensei.

Sergii started his way to freediving in 2009 in Sharm El Sheikh. When he was snorkeling along the reef he saw two freedivers who dove easily to 15 meters. The next trip to Egypt in 2010 was planned purposefully and included AIDA 2 Star Freediving Course in Dahab. The course failed because of equalization issue. He finished the course 9 months later after the surgery on sinuses and equalization trainings in the 3.5m swimming pool. After that he passed all levels of AIDA Freediving courses and got certified as an AIDA Instructor in 2014.

Sergii used to train in the swimming pool and took part in two freediving competitions when lived in Kyiv (Ukraine). However he decided to focus on teaching courses and coaching others as teaching is one of the most effective ways to learn.

Sergii likes to explore different new spots for freediving. Ibiza and Montenegro, Egypt and Thailand were the most interesting. He did a few freediving courses and trainings in Montenegro (the Adriatic Sea) from 2015 to 2017. He has been living in Dahab since 2015, training for himself, teaching AIDA courses and coaching. Also Sergii is keen on swimming, running, chess and photography.

Lana Zapp

SSI L3 Master Freediver, Underwater Photographer, Turtle Paparazzi and Manta Whisperer.

Lana originally from Russia but most of her life has been living in Croatia at the beautiful coast of the Adriatic Sea. She started her way in freediving in 2016 when she learnt the skill from her spearfisher friends. She fell in love with all the treasures that underwater world held and rather than hunt a fish with a gun she started to do so with her camera.

Seeking for more oceanic adventures she traveled around South East Asia in 2017 for a year where she dove in numerous sites of Thailand, Indonesia and Maldives on one breath to get unique shots and experience.

Although Lana originally specialised in underwater photography she decided to dedicate her life to the sport of freediving by joining SSI level 1 and level 2 course with Blue-Immersion on Koh Tao Thailand in 2017.

Later that year she moved to Egypt where she continued her education and took level 3 and Master course with Freedive Dahab in Dahab. Currently Lana is in the process of obtaining SSI Instructor certification.

Lana keeps on developing her skills in the sport of freediving and in education of freediving while also enjoying the ocean through the lens of her camera.
