Freediving in the UK? Is it possible? Isn't it too cold? I went to find out!
Over the last few years I've totally fallen in love with freediving, after being a hard-core scuba diver for years before. Freediving was never really that attractive to me when I was in the midst of my scuba travels, but a couple of years ago when I rocked up at the incredible Mexican Mayan Cenotes, everything changed. I spent around 3 months freedive training in Mexico, and that's where my love affair began. As COVID closed the world, freediving wasn't on my agenda anymore, as I naively thought I had to be somewhere warm to do it.
But recently I started researching freediving in the UK and found out it was possible to do it here! So on the week lockdown lifted in the UK I head off for a solo road trip to Porth Kerris in Cornwall to do some freediving training with Aquacity Freediving ran by freedive legends Georgina Miller and Dann Verhoeven.

TV famous from 'Broadchurch' which is set in West Bay and features many a Bridport hotspot.
'Best things to do in Bridport' entail walks along the beach and coffee and cake in town.. so cafe's are a great pastime in this town, and here are my favourite:
