I was a looking for a freediver community in Taipei city, and I am so glad I've found VD! I like the fact that the group mixes both western and taiwanese people. And the atmosphere is funny and professional at the same time thanks to Anthony & JiaYin positive energy. I definitely recommend it!

A wonderful experience. Anthony and Jiayin put use at ease in a sport that can be quite daunting at first. It felt like we were all a team and anyone's success small or big was celebrated. I can't wait to do another course with them to keep learning about freediving and breathing. Thank you !
