Ocean Tigers Hostel is also an escape from the tourism, city noise, and husstling. But, with that being said we are no more than a walking distance away from the party, beach, and resturants. But don't take our words for it, come check us out if you are ever in the Cabo San Lucas area of Baja California!.

Ocean Tigers Hostel was founded by one of the very first AIDA Instructors, Benoit Frachet. Ben, growing up in Nice, France, started freediving in 1997 just a few years after AIDA was formed. From a very young age, Ben fell in love with the sport and ended up traveling around the world sharing his passions. With his speciality in freediving, in the Cabo San Lucas area, Ocean Tigers offers decades of freediving instructional experience from casual to formal freediving in AIDA or PADI Certifications.
Prior to forming Ocean Tigers Hostel. Michael Guild ( The other founder ) also ended up falling in love with the sport. In a search for proper training and education, Michael stumbbled upon Ben in Cabo San Lucas. At the time, Ben was only one of 2 AIDA Certified Instructors in all of Mexico. Afterwards Ben and Michael became friends; And thus, Ocean Tigers Hostel was formed in Cabo.
Why freediving?” many ask. Why do you want to hold your breath until your body is screaming for air and see how far you can go, when you can strap a scuba tank on your back and go as far as you want? Well, freediving is not at all like this! It is not about your body screaming for air and not about suffering for lack of oxygen. Freedivers don’t come back from a dive looking like they are about to suffocate, but most of the time they break the surface with a big smile stamped on their face.
Why are they smiling? That is hard to explain to people who have never tried it! The feeling of gliding in the blue water, the feeling of being at peace submerged in this big vast liquid world, the feeling of becoming a sea creature, the feeling of belonging that makes us almost remember our real aquatic origins; all of this condensed in a 1 or 2 minutes experience, makes it very hard not to smile!
You've never been freediving and want to try it? Say Hola to the AIDA 1 Star or PADI Basics program. Start out in our training pool and learn the basic theorys. Afterwards, depending on your comfort, we can then decide between a beach or boat entry dive. Plan on a full day's worth of training.
