Absolutely amazing and unforgettable experience with VD for 3 days in Xiaoliuqiu. I was really nervous about trying free-diving but Anthony and Jiayin put me at ease right from the get-go. They are both so experienced, competent and professional - they take great care with safety and give so much feedback to help you improve your technique and so much encouragement to help build confidence with each session. I'm blown away by what they helped me achieve in just 3 days - being called 'Miss 20m' on my final day was icing on the cake haha. I spent the whole weekend laughing and having fun while learning so much about free-diving and many useful skills for breathing/relaxing that I will definitely continue to use.

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!

They are very professional and they really do want to help you either to be better, to be comfortable, to know yourself better, to build confidence or to master your skills. Not only they provide instructor/licensing services but they continuously hold a community of practicing, training programs for anyone who want to stay with this beautiful sport.  If you are in northern Taiwan this is the place you wanna be. My experience has been very good and am continuing my freedives with them.
