Freediving is a form of underwater diving that relies on the diver’s ability to hold their breath, rather than using a breathing apparatus such as scuba gear. Freedivers may use fins and other diving equipment to help them swim deeper and faster, but they do not carry air tanks or use regulators to breathe while underwater.

Apnea is the temporary suspension of breathing. In the context of freediving, apnea refers to the act of holding one’s breath while underwater. Freedivers often practice apnea in order to increase their ability to hold their breath and to dive to deeper depths.
