I took the Freediving Level 1 course, which lasted three days. There was only one other student, so we got a lot of personal attention. Carlo (the owner and instructor) immediately made us feel relaxed and at ease, and his experience and confidence inspired both of us to make enormous progress, not just in depth, but in comfort and relaxation. He pushes you to do your best, but is also patient and supportive, allowing each of us to progress at our own pace, offering very precise feedback for each of us after each dive. We were responsible for buddying for each other from the surface, so each of us would learn from both our own mistakes, but also Carlo's corrections for the other student, which was very effective in helping us progress rapidly. I really appreciated his emphasis on fundamental skills - he is much more interested in helping us make clean dives than deep dives, and this allowed me to really relax and enjoy my time in the water. The result of this confidence and relaxation allowed me to double my personal best depths in both free immersion and constant weight, but this never felt like Carlo's goal, and I think that is an important lesson in itself.As a very important side note, it was a pleasure to spend three days with Carlo. He's really fun and relaxed, with tons of stories to tell but also curious and interested in the world and his students. I can't wait to dive with him again.

After having done my Level I and II course with Carlo, when his school was still on Elba Island, this year I decided to finally come back and dive. I did a workshop with him and 4 other students. It was magical. The place he chose for accomodation, the food his girlfriend cooked (absolutely amazing), his lessons, the diving. I do not know any other teacher of freediving, but I am very, very confident in saying, that Carlo has set the bar super high for everyone else. He has the calmest, kindest but at the same time most focussed mindset and he is really able to make every student with his or her issues, goals or fears heard and comfortable. I trust him a 100% in the water. Carlo know's what he is doing, whether it's underwater, teaching or boathandling. It does not matter, whether you'll do a workshop on a certain topic, a fun dive or a course: You can be sure to come home very grounded and calm, with a lot of progress in your pocket and a smile on your face. I am already excited for the next workshop or cruise I'll do with him! You're an amazing teacher, Carlo!

If there is a definition of a perfect instructor, It would be for Carlo, i had the best 3 days of my life under water with carlo, he not only is an excellent Freediver but also a very good and experienced teacher. He could easily understand the mentality of his students and would plan his methods of teaching based on that. I always felt safe underwater when he’s around and eventually i pushed my limits to 15m. Moreover he’s so respectful to the environment and the marine life so I’d definitely recommend him for different courses.And I can’t wait to join other events with him.

I had a free diving course for 4 days. Although I had little to no experience in water I managed to reach depths of 10 meters. Carlo is both patient and very experienced. Would absolutely recommend to anyone learning free diving techniques.

In a group we booked two days of freediving. In the morning we had some training on the rope and in the afternoon was recreational diving. Carlo is not only an experienced diver but also a very good coach with an eye for details and proper technique. In the morning sessions I really could learn a lot and the afternoons were used to relax and discover in an adventurous way the sea and island.We had a great time and I will definitely come back!Highly recommended!
