Meet Deep Med's Apnea Junkies

A team of two sharing a common goal; to help you feel comfortable and relaxed in the water, building skills at your pace.

Fabrice - The Cave Junkie

Deep Med’s owner, Fabrice, is enthusiastic about the sea both off and on land. Born in Malta & exposed to the sea from day one, his earliest and happiest memories are his playful adventures in the water. Throughout his teenage years he took up sailing and started a career in the Maritime industry as a navigation Officer.

As time progressed, a deeper connection with the sea developed through the art of breath-hold. A connection he wishes to pass onto you through his methods of teaching.

Fabrice enjoys depth diving as well as the recreational side; exploring coastlines, freediving wrecks, cave diving and swim-throughs! Fabrice will do his best to immerse you into his world through Deep Med’s experience.

During the winter months, he recharges by getting back into fitness, cold water swimming, deep-dive training whilst also broadening his equalization knowledge and teaching skill-set.

Weapons of choice – The EQ bubbler, Repetition & a dose of thrilling underwater adventure.

The journey so far.

Fabrice and Dawid have been freediving together around the island of Gozo for the past three years. A friendship that has also been formed in the gym with Fabrice engaging in 1-on-1 training with Dawid. Through-out the years, after much freediving debate, it became evident that the teaching philosophies and approach to freediving were very similar.

Together they share a philosophy that focuses on helping freedivers build on skills to reach new levels of comfort, peace and joy.

Having Dawid on board not only expands the team, but is a driving force in the continuation and commitment to providing good quality freediving education.

The journey so far.
