What makes us special...

I know that you can feel in complete peace underwater.

I know this because I have felt it, and have coached many other people into this experience.

Our primary objective here at Freedive Passion La Ventana is to support and guide people along that path.

We want you to feel the pure joy of diving in total confidence, knowing exactly what you need to do and that you can do it.

Achieving this requires the learning of many new skills, there will be ups and downs. But we will be there for you all along the way with clear and patient coaching.

LA VENTANA

La Ventana is a peaceful town just 45 minute south of La Paz, Mexico (Baja Sur's capital city).
The town is nestled between the ocean, the Sierra de la Lauguna mountains and the sierra de las Cacachilas desert. You couldn't wish for a more beautiful setting.
The town overlooks the sea of Cortez and the island of Ceralvo also known as Jacques Cousteau island after the underwater explorer who fell in love with this place.
La Ventana offers a wide variety of options for accommodation, food and adventure so you and your family cannot be bored.
The ocean grants beautiful conditions for deep diving, and an abundance of marine life. Imagine preparing for a dive with dolphins and Mabula rays jumping all around you... this is a reality of diving here.

Zoe Lower

Originally from a fashion photography background, Zoë first came to freediving in the hope of becoming more comfortable taking her lens below the surface and to help maximise her marine life encounters. Since that first line dive she has been in a love affair with all things underwater. She is a qualified Molchanovs instructor with a holistic approach and a soft spot for breathing techniques, yet it’s the pure connection with our oceans and the serene solitude of diving that she cherishes the most.

‘Julia, pronounced "who-lia”, is a California-born soul with roots extending to the vibrant landscapes of Colombia. Her upbringing was immersed in the magical kelp forests of California, where her father taught her the art of diving. Her aquatic journey led her to Asia, where she refined her skills and earned certification as a Molchanov’s Freedive Instructor and Breath Coach.

For Julia, life is an adventure best lived with a smile. Specializing in the blend of playfulness and inner peace that freediving offers, she sees each dive as a chance to explore the depths and connect with the ocean's rhythm.
