The Azul Freediving Challenge 2023

SPRING EDITION 26, 27, 28th May 2023

Since the first edition, the event has been constantly growing and evolving. The organisation’s creativity and the constant drive to enhance the competition allows the Azul Freediving Challenge to expand and offer new ways to enjoy and follow this unique event at each edition.

To support the performance of our divers, we have added something new to the competition at each step throughout the event’s history:

• In 2019 the core team expanded, adding more safeties and judges

• In 2020 we moved to a deeper cenote with hospitality infrastructure to allow us to host our growing public audience.

• In 2021 we installed a live stream to allow people to follow every single dive on Youtube in real time.

• In 2022 we launched a professional competition platform.

Our philosophy is to keep on growing every year, adding unique features to our competition.

The Azul Freediving Challenge is the opportunity to push your limits safely!

We offer you the best conditions to dive. Our safety team is perfectly trained and has participated in some of the most important freediving competitions around the world. Also, you will dive from our official platform equipped with a professional counter-weight system.
