The 2018 Pan Pacific Pool Freediving Championship will be hosted by Japan next March in Narashino, east of Tokyo.

The three-day competition will cover the disciplines of static apnea, Dynamic No Fins (DNF) and Dynamic With Fins (DYN). While it will be open to competitors from all nationalities, special awards will be handed out for competitors from Pan-Pacific countries, specifically those with a coastline on the Pacific Ocean, and/or the part of a continent around the Pacific rim.
