Imagine spending 6 days and 6 nights on board a yacht with world-class breath-hold divers.

6 students will get to spend 6 days and 6 nights on-board a yacht with world-class breath-hold divers Fred Buyle and William Winram for an intimate and one-of-a-kind freediving/sailing experience under their brand Ocean Encounters.

In 2013, the avid Watermen will guide you through the blue waters of the Saronic Gulf using breath hold diving, the most natural and ancient way to to discover and explore the underwater world.

The Saronic Gulf is considered by most as the absolute sailing paradise combining fair weather, many anchorage points and short passages around the islands of Aegina, Poros, Hydra and Spetses amongst others.

Ocean Encounters’ teaching style includes the latest freediving techniques, sixty years of combined experience, environmental awareness and, of course, fun!

Ocean Encounters instruction spans from beginner basics to fine-tuning for advanced freedivers.

The price of the cruise is €1195 Euros per person based on double occupancy per cabin.
That includes 6 nights on the boat, water and fuel for the yacht, freediving instruction by William and Fred.
