Freediving Instructors

Chris “Elvis” James

A former emergency services trainer and adventure consultant, Chris has made the Caribbean his home for the past 5 years. He helps with the running of other prominent freediving schools in the Caribbean, however the cenotes of Mexico and great tacos has encouraged him to permanently base in Tulum, Mexico.

He still spends a lot of time in other Caribbean locations assisting with the growing number of world class freediving competitions held here.
