Free Diving Tioman

Free diving is possible on Tioman Island

Tioman Island offers many great opportunities for free diving enthusiasts to practice their craft. Although most of our operations cater to snorkelers and scuba divers, Aman Tioman is more than happy to let our valued guests dive without any breathing apparatus and other safety equipment if they so wish.

Highly trained staff

We here at Aman Tioman Resort are very understanding of the needs and desires of our guests – and thus we are also well equipped to help all kinds of divers pursue their passion. Rest assured that our veteran diving staff at Aman Tioman have full certifications from PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors), which includes Emergency First Response and Rescue training. The Republic of Singapore Air Force also has a quick response helicopter fleet on standby, and has had extensive experience with recovery operations near Tioman Island.

Learning Free Diving on Tioman Island

Free diving is perfect for experienced divers who feel overly constrained by the Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus gear that limits movement, visibility and comfort. It is a skill that’s cheap and easy to pick up, but hard to master – Tioman island is the perfect place for an aspiring free diver to learn, because of the close proximity of so many other rescue trained divers and medical facilities. Training free diving on Tioman Island has the added benefit of letting you enjoy the beautiful underwater flora and fauna of Tioman Island.

Good for your Health

Training for free diving at Tioman Island is a great way to get your cardio and mental toughness in shape. Aman Tioman Resort has plenty of soft beds and sofas in case of hypoxia, as well as excellent cycling and jogging paths for more general cardio exercises. This also works wonders for improving the elusive quality known as ‘willpower’ – breath control exercises have a long an ancient history, and many management consultant and motivational speaking organizations use this technique to help their members maintain focus.

Strong Free Diving Community

There is a strong diving community on Tioman made up of experienced divers from all over the world – and this includes even extreme forms of diving such as free diving! Here on Tioman, you will find plenty of free diving enthusiasts who have managed to safely practice their sport for many years, and they will be sure to be a great help for your freediving journey.

Ancient Traditions

Free diving at Tioman Island is also an excellent way to take part in an ancient, hallowed tradition. Unlike Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus diving, free diving has been practiced by humans for many millennia. The ama divers of Japan had the honour of collecting abalone for temples and for the Emperor, and the courier divers of the Peloponnesian conflicts, who passed on vital intelligence through a naval blockade. Before those even, the Mesopotamian slave divers collected pearls for commerce, and our earliest ancestors ate oysters found only at submarine depths. By throwing yourself into the ocean deep with nothing but a mask, some flippers, and very strong willpower, you too could be a part of this long standing human lineage, and enjoy the marine landscape that birthed us all.
