The Best Gifts for Freedivers

Freedivers are often minimalists in spirit. Instead of entering the water with a slew of scuba gear, they prefer to explore the sea with a set of fins and a mask. If you’re looking for a gift for a special freediver in your life, here are a few items to consider.

If you can’t find anything freediving related — opt for something mermaid themed. After all, freedivers are as close as you can get to being a real-life mermaid.

Practical and useful, every diver needs a gear bag to safely transport their gear from one dive site to the next. This bag is also waterpoof, making it a perfect all-around bag for clothes and other necessities a freediver needs on a dive trip. At 135 liters capacity, this dive bag can comfortably fit two sets of dive gear with extra room for clothes. 

2. Course or training

There’s no item or piece of gear that can top excellent training when it comes to freediving. Enroll your freediving friend into the next level of their course, or splurge on some one-on-one lessons from a qualified freediving coach. Many coaches offer video analysis where the freediver can look closely at what they could improve on.
