I’ll come back to this topic, but let me first ask, is it necessary to get lessons, go through a course, etc.? I am very comfortable in the water and a decent swimmer. Last month, I spent hours snorkeling in the ocean with my eight-year-old son. I found myself going down deep (10-15m) with little difficulty, popping my ears when the pressure got too great.
Saw lots of freedivers on Green Island. I guess it’s kind of a thing now in Taiwan.
I’m seriously considering buying a good mask, snorkel, and those long fins, and just teaching myself. All good? Are there some things I should watch out for?
