Free Diving Course aboard 8 People Dive Boat in Eilat, Israel
Eilat is situated at the most northern point of the Gulf of Aqaba, the eastern arm of the Red Sea. It is Israel’s southern point. The Great Rift, a giant geological fault passes underneath the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba making it a very deep sea. The sea is nutrient poor which accounts for its excellent visibility. Because of the depth the water there is no great seasonal temperature fluctuations. A 3mm suit is a good choice all year round except possibly in summer where a thinner suit might be preferred. Other good news for freedivers is there are no dramatic thermoclines as in the Mediterranean. We teach theory for our courses and discuss training plans at home and drive, only a few minutes, to our various dive destinations. At every site there are bathroom, shower and changing facilities. What Is Freediving? Freediving is a modern competitive sport that finds its roots in antiquity and even prehistory. Man has used and developed the techniques of breath-hold diving for the gathering of food, for military application and for salvage. At the time of Alexander the Great, there was then a long established industry producing a much coveted, purple dye from the murex shell that was harvested by divers from the city of Tyre. From about 300N of the equator to 300S, are found the main communities of breath-hold divers. The Ama divers of Japan and Korea, ladies who dive almost naked in water of only 18OC/64OF, harvesting edible sea-weed, and pearls.
