Who are We?

FreedivingUAE was co-founded by Adel Abu Haliqa (UAE National Freediving Champion & AIDA Instructor) and Alex Boulting (AIDA Instructor) in 2009 and is the only company in the UAE specializing in courses and training in Freediving.

We are a professional community of freedivers who have a passion for passively exploring the underwater world.

We are working to get Freediving recognized in the UAE and create Freediving as popular activity.

In the future we aim to put the UAE on the international Freediving map by organizing a national team and running competitions locally. We feel that the UAE is a natural home of Freediving where pearls bought wealth to the region before oil.

FreedivingUAE has also organised courses with international Freediving Champions and specialist trainers such as William Winram, Patrick Musim, Mike Maric and Emma Farrell. Under our affiliation with AIDA we will also be organising Freediving records in the UAE.
