Established in 2004, Apnea Total is Koh Tao’s longest-running freediving school.

It started off with teaching the freediving techniques to students in a simple bungalow 16 years ago to grow into the headquarters of the organization with 20 locations worldwide.
Apnea Total Freediving has a student-centered teaching approach for all courses, whether someone is training for the starting level of Freediver or working on their Advanced Freediver training, which are two of the most popular courses. The focus is on ensuring a relaxed feeling when doing the training instead of emphasizing ticking boxes on a check-list. Training is done in small groups with a maximum of 3 students in the water, and training is done with a line. While one goal is to reach a depth of 20 meters with a single breath, Apnea Total ensures the comfort and ability of the student first because the benefit of freediving training is to get to enjoy the ocean at any time. Their private boat goes out to prime locations between 10 am to 2 pm. All equipment is included in the training. Newly built rooms are available on location at the school; however, there is additional accommodation within walking distance, ranging from budget-friendly to higher-end rooms.

Many students often go on to the Advanced Freediver course, which provides more in-depth techniques for reaching depths of 35 meters as well as static apnea training for prolonged breath-holding practice. Static apnea training can be done as a separate course as well. In addition to the introductory training, students can choose to take their training to the next level to Master Freediver, Instructor, and even Master Instructor. Apnea Total Freediving was the first school to conduct master level training in all of Southeast Asia. The Master Freediver course takes five weeks, and the students always work with an experienced freediving instructor. For the Instructor course, it takes approximately 1-month to complete, but the course is catered around the student. More time and training can to done to ensure the best results for the person.
