A Breathtaking Journey with Freediving Center UvitaI had the immense pleasure of embarking on a freediving adventure with Freediving Center Uvita, and it was nothing short of extraordinary. From the very outset, Charlene was instrumental, not just in the diving itself but in ensuring my journey to Uvita was seamless despite the logistical hurdles I faced.Our diving day at Caño Island was a marvel; the underwater world there is alive with vibrant marine life and crystal-clear visibility—a diver's paradise. Charlene's professionalism shone through in the way she captured the experience. I now have two stunning videos and a plethora of photographs that she skillfully took, immortalizing my dive.I am beyond thankful for the opportunity to dive with Charlene and the team. If you're seeking an unforgettable freediving experience, look no further. Freediving Center Uvita comes with my wholehearted recommendation.

Our day diving with Charline and Sylvian was one of the highlights of our trip here in Costa Rica. We spent the day diving at Caño island with a group of freedivers. The day was awesome and we saw dolphins, turtles and brown boobys on the boat ride over.Their amazing local guide Sebas had tons of knowledge to share. We got very lucky and dove with many sea turtles and reef sharks. To top it all off they got a bunch of amazing photos of us diving that we will cherish. Can’t recommend these two enough!

The folks at Freediving Uvita provide a superb and highly personal experience. They are engaged with the ocean and with their community. As a new freediver, I feel tremendously lucky to have been taught and certified by Charline. She’s fantastic.

Super recommended for all those people who want to start or know more about free diving; I took a two-day course (1 day pool session, 2 day open water in the ocean) on the recommendation of a friend as a beginner without having any knowledge of the subject and I really enjoyed and learned a lot thanks to the instructor Silvany, an experience that without I certainly want to repeat where you will learn several techniques that will help you improve in just a couple of days.The practice in open water or in the ocean takes place within the waters of the Marino Ballena National Park, which is an incredible place, with the best visibility and with luck you will also be able to see other animals such as dolphins, turtles, fish and even whales during the season.The super professional instructor, patient and very clear with his instructions, in addition to always accompanying you and making you feel safe at all times and with him you can also obtain your certification, I totally recommend this experience with Free Diving Uvita and I assure you that you will fall in love with this10/10

A big thank you to Charlène and Sylvain for the very professional and friendly welcome! I felt well supported and safe to try freediving for the first time. Having never practiced a sport of this type, I had difficulty with the basics but Charlène and Sylvain were able to be educational, patient and involved, thank you very much!If you have any doubts, go for it, you don't take any risks!

Amazing!I recently did the Level 1 freediver course here, and it was an incredibly fulfilling experience.Charline and Sylvain, the instructors, were absolutely amazing. Their blend of professionalism and warmth was truly remarquable.The course was well-structured, with the theoretical aspects presented in an organised and comprehensive manner. When it came to the practical sessions, they were incredibly reassuring, especially for someone new to freediving. Charline had this great balance between challenging us to push our limits while being keenly aware of our comfort zones, providing constant reassurance along the way.I’m very excited to continue my freediving journey with them as my guides and instructors. Gracias :))

The freediving course with Sylvain and Charline has been life changing for me! There are so many benefits from freediving, but the biggest for me has to be the level of peace and oneness that you can experience. Sylvain and Charline help make this possible by being super calm and peaceful themselves. They have a beautiful energy, and with their knowledge and skills, I felt super supported when I was in the water with them. If you want to take your freediving to the next level, this is the place to do it!
