KATABASIS FREEDIVING AND SAILING offers wonderful freediving and sailing cruises for freedivers and spearfishers in the Tuscan archipelago, throughout the Mediterranean and beyond. A week on a weekend to train in apnea or to practice spearfishing and for those who want the opportunity to learn the basics for driving a sailing boat from 10 to 15 meters.

Jagi is the cabin cruiser that we use, a 34 feet (10 meters) of Beneteau’s Oceanis line that has several features brought together in a single solution: streamlined water lines and at the same time an elegant and functional hull. The wide stern gives it stability while the spacious cockpit and easy access to the beach guarantee comfort on deck. A sailboat with high performance but with the space necessary to practice activities such as freediving and spearfishing. Considering its 3 double cabins, it is proposed for a maximum of 4/5 participants as well as the skipper, in order to guarantee a good numerical ratio both during educational and recreational activities.
