Freediving Record Attempt 

Freediving, also known as skin diving or snorkeling, has been practiced as a competitive sport since the early 20th century but in recent years, many more people have been captivated by the sport. The movement has been inspired largely by Martin Stepanek of the Czech Republic, and a new generation of divers including New Zealander, Niki Roderick.

At the same event, Roderick will attempt to break one of free diving's longest-standing World Records in the Women's Variable Weight discipline, by diving 123 meters, feet first on a weighted sled that runs along a rope. More.

We have snorkeling holidays and diving holidays in our extensive listing of activity vacations and breaks.
