Looking for perfect ocean conditions and the company of world champion freedivers? Then look no further than the Baja Peninsula in Mexico this fall. The first annual “Big Blue” international freediving competition is set to begin in November — running from the 1st through the 9th.
Event organizer and Mexican national record holder, Estrella Navarro, (in cooperation with AIDA Mexico and Cressi), is pleased to offer a competition that will provide athletes from around the world the opportunity to test their freediving limits in the most beautiful surroundings – the warm, deep waters off of Isla Espíritu Santo.
“The “Big Blue“will feature five days of competition, one day of swimming with whale sharks and a conference to promote ocean conservation,” shared Navarro. “The visibility in November is the best of the year — you can see up to 30 meters! Plus we are giving each athlete the flexibility of choosing between constant weight ( CWT), constant no-fins, and free immersion (FIM) for every dive – the choice is theirs!“
Inaugural attendees will include Alexey Molchanov, Natalia Molchanova and Carlos Coste.
