Overview

Sink below the surface and you are free. To many, freediving is one of the ultimate forms of freedom and meditation – and a chance to push your body's limits while being present in the moment. On this Re:discover journey, you will venture to the Indonesian paradise of Nusa Lembongan for two weeks focusing on finding your breath. You will learn the fundamentals of freediving and will be surprised to see that they also apply to everyday life back home. Through freediving, meditation, and breathwork, you will strengthen your mindset and return home renewed, refreshed, and with a new perspective. No previous diving experience is needed to participate. You're only required to come eager to dive in and give it a try! In your free time, you'll have the opportunity to explore Nusa Lembongan or can choose to make a day trip to the surrounding islands - like Nusa Penida. Spend a day at the infamous Dream Beach soaking in the sun's rays, or discover life below the surface from a different perspective by giving scuba diving a go! Rent a scooter, visit local markets or arrange a visit to the mangrove forests in the north of the island. You can also choose to hone in on your freediving, yoga, or meditation skills by booking additional sessions. You'll dive into these activities with a group of like-minded adventurers who are equally as eager to push their limits. Dive shipwrecks and reefs, spot mantas and turtles, all with a community of strangers who have become friends.

Freediving is a way of accessing creative energy you never knew you had and motivating yourself to excel in every aspect of life. On this adventure, you will learn the fundamentals of freediving and how to use the skills you'll learn as a tool to promote positive mindsets. Diving with mantas, turtles and maybe even a shipwreck or two are just a bonus!

Whether you're just dipping your toes or taking a swim; the ocean has an incredible quality of creating calmness. While freediving requires you to push your limits, you also need to present and trust your skills and abilities. This adventure is a journey, and a perfect mix of exciting activities and free time where you can reflect and ultimately return home refreshed and with new perspectives!

DAY 1 - ARRIVAL

Fly into Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) and be welcomed by the aromatic smells of burning incense, the warmth of the sun's rays, and the bustle of intrepid travelers and locals alike moving throughout the city. You will be greeted at the airport by a driver who will transfer you to Sanur, a coastal hub where you will board a fast boat to Nusa Lembongan. The total transfer time is around 2 hours but can vary a bit due to traffic. Once you reach your new home base, you'll have time to freshen up after checking into your accommodation. Meet the rest of your crew for a community-style welcome dinner in the evening.

Today's activities will surely get your heart pounding and blood pumping as you depart for a day of free-diving with giant mantas who call the Nusa island's warm bays home.  Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida are home to some of Indonesia’s healthiest reef systems as well as some incredible wildlife that make every trip a spectacular adventure. Learn how to safely interact with wildlife and understand firsthand how freediving can change these interactions.

DAY 11

Today you will be split into 2 groups depending on the size of your travel crew. In smaller groups, you will take a deep dive inward during a Conscious Connected Breathing (CCB) session. This exercise has the potential to be transformative (if you let it) but is also optional if you don't feel up to participating. Many wonder if it's possible to improve your mental and physical health simply by changing the way you breathe, and with CCB, the answer is yes. Breath is powerful, and learning how to fully utilize your breath can produce both mental and physical benefits that you can integrate into your daily routine for the rest of your life!

DAY 14 - DEPARTURE

As they say, all good things must come to an end. Today you will bid farewell to your island paradise of Nusa Lembongan. You will be transferred back to Bali via a speedboat (approx. 40 minutes) and can then choose to be dropped off at the airport or continue onward to your next destination. If you have more time, we highly encourage extending your stay. Visit the cultural oasis of Ubud, stay in the quaint surfer town of Changgu, or take a trip to the picturesque seaside cliffs at Uluwatu. If you're feeling adventurous, you can head to the nearby island of Lombok for a 4-day volcano trek or to the Gili Islands for some additional days of relaxation!

Reviews

We absolutely loved our course! It was challenging in some ways...and a different experience than scuba diving, definitely a bit more challenging, but so so rewarding, especially the mindset part of it. But it's nice that you see improved results fairly quickly. Overall, diving into this re:breathe experience was one of the best things we (boyfriend and I) have done in a long time!

Sine R.

I joined Kilroy's re:discover journey called re:breathe and I had a blast! I expected to have a good time, but I really had a whole new world opening up to me - The world of freediving! We had great instructors, good yoga and meditation sessions. It doesn't require you to be a solid swimmer or good at yoga, there is something for all levels! But be prepared to fall in love with holding your breath underwater!

FAQs

On re:discover journeys, we like to keep groups small. This helps you better assimilate into the local communities you'll be visiting, and gives space for you to truly connect and get to know your fellow travel mates. Group size will vary but expect around 6 to 12 people.

Accommodation on this trip is dorm-style or should we say pod-style?! You will be staying at a brand new accommodation where you will have your own little capsule to call home for the duration of your stay. No need to worry about creeky bunk beds! Your home base also has a large pool to cool off in, two terraces to relax on after a day of activities and is walking distance to everything you need.

Absolutely not! This re:discover adventure is for everyone and beginners are encouraged to join! You should be comfortable in water (both pools and the ocean) but there is no need to have previous experience.

You should plan to fly into and out of the Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) located on Bali. Your trip includes a roundtrip transfer via speedboat from Bali to Nusa Lembongan. Once we are closer to the travel date we will notify you of the transfer time so you can make appropriate arrangements. If you decide to arrive earlier or depart later than the outlined itinerary, it is possible to arrange your own transfer to and from Nusa Lembongan. The speedboat transfer takes approximately 40 minutes each way.

We recommend that you do! Either arrive early and get a feel of a your destination or stay after your journey is complete. We've set this trip to two weeks so that you won't have to take off too much time from work, but if this is not a concern of yours, well, then it's almost an obligation to stay a bit longer.  

Did we not answer all of your questions? Not to worry – you can always ask! There are no stupid questions. Well, not a lot anyway. We're always happy to help – even if some questions might be silly to us, if we haven't answered them clearly by now, it's on us. 

Plus, we love it when you get in touch!
