The Boat

“Sea Cucumber” is a magnificent 15,30 m length sailing cruise vessel, which we have specifically modified for combining sailing, diving and freediving comfortably.

In addition to the lounge – kitchen and the three bathrooms, we dispose of five double cabins, which provide us an exceptional accommodation design for enjoying the big blue.

Moreover, we count with a very helpful dinghy, kayaks and of course with all recommended safety equipment for navigation as well as for recreational diving and freediving.

Columbretes Islands

Within 30 miles from the coast of Castellon, a unique archipelago formed by four groups of volcanic islets emerges: the Columbretes Islands.

Surrounded by cristal clear waters and abrupt submerged walls, the archipelago offers ideal conditions to shelter rich marine life and therefore a unique environment for freediving and scuba diving.

These waters belong to the Marine Reserve of the Columbretes Islands, while the archipelago forms a Nature Reserve itself. Consecuently, the environment is highly protected and therefore, it is a paradise for the Mediterranean freediver.
