What we do
The DEEP QUEST INSTITUTE® is one of the oldest Training Agency in education of FreeDiving in the World. An organization created and dedicated completely to promote and teach the activities in FreeDiving, through training and certification of FreeDiving worldwide. A educational system with many years of experience that have been consolidated as the leader in its sector.
Francisco Ferreras, better known as Pipin, has created together with his late wife Audrey Mestre, well known FreeDiving world record breaker, the IAFD, being him world champion on more than 40 occasions and in multiple categories of FreeDiving. Years later, the name of International Association of Free Diving has turned into the Deep Quest Institute®, how it is known today.
We invite anyone to join this trend to enjoy this exciting sport that exceeds the excitement created many years ago in scuba diving. One way to approach the underwater world is discovering the capabilities and potential hidden within yourself.
No competition level training requirements to enjoy the beauty of the underwater world, just learn safety while having fun.
Audrey had a dream, teach our new generations on how to enjoy the same manner the beauties of the underwater world as much as she did. At the DQI we believe in Audrey's dream and help to keep it alive.
Discover yourself in a way you never dreamed about and understand why whales and dolphins dancing always laughing.
