This will be the second Freediving Competition hosted by Blue Planet Divers in Ko Lanta. Due to the success of last year’s competition, they have secured sponsorship from MARES, Rawi Warin Resort & Spa and the Tourism Authority of Thailand. The competition is also fully recognised by AIDA, the Worldwide Federation for breath-hold diving, and competitors can use points won at the Andaman Freediving Challenge 2009 towards their World Rankings.

This event is open to all and we welcome new freedivers to this competition.
