This is the hottest new underwater sport in the world and lets you explore the underwater realm without any specialized equipment. As the name implies, it is breath-hold diving: going down and exploring the underwater world in one breathe, surfacing, recovering and repeating. Participants of the sport call it the most zen-like experience they have had, truly close to flying and with the added bonus of utter silence, without any intrusive bubbles. It does require a little more fitness, swimming skills and commitment than scuba – but then, nothing good is ever really easy, right? Diveindia offers skin diving classes in season in Havelock, the first center in India to do so.
