We took several training sessions with Carlos and were impressed with the quality of the training, logistics, and just with the beauty of his blue classroom.

Carlos is not just an amazing diver, but also is a fantastic instructor. He can easily switch from teaching beginners the very basics without overwhelming them to fine tuning advanced techniques.

The logistics is also very impressive. Great boat, stationary dedicated diving platform, lines, floats, pulley. Professional level.

We will definitely come back for more training.

Carlos was an awesome instructor, and a genuinely cool dude. When I return to Bonaire, I will definitely look forward to improving my freediving skills with him.

I came to Carlos without any experience in freediving, and he took the time to teach me everything i need to know. This includes not only freediving itself but also extra preparation for the dives, including yoga and breathing exercises. From the moment I met Carlos, it was obvious that freediving is his passion and his many years of training and experience in competitive freediving make him one of the best instructors you could wish for, for beginner to advanced freedivers. On top of this, he has created one of the best settings imaginable to train with his students, with all the equipment and logistics you need for proper freediving. During training you will be able to enjoy calm, warm Caribbean waters with good visibility, which makes the diving so much more spectacular and stress-free. I can't thank Carlos enough for introducing me to freediving in his own, unique way!

A passionated instructor who really guides you and invites you to perform your best. He is reachable and kind, listens carefully and no moment he lets you be passive. Act, perform and be concentrated. Carlos gets out what you have of abilities inside you.

My friends and I completed PADI's free diving first level with full instruction from Carlos Coste himself. Beyond the honor it is to receive classes from an elite champion, lessons went beyond our expectations, as they where not only entertaining but seriously focused on technique, and understanding free diving as a discipline beyond the recreational activity. Learning to recognize and improve your capacities underwater was at the core, along with the importance of safety measures. Very complete experience. I was free diving at 8 meters and finished feeling pretty confident at 16 meters! Grateful!
