Daan Verhoeven

After swimming with dolphins and getting the distinct impression he was being made fun of, Daan wanted to learn how to swim a bit better underwater. It turned out that this was an official sport, and so in 2005 he did his first basic freediving course -he has yet to get completely dry.

National Record Holder

In 2006 he started competing after attending a couple of events as a spectator and really enjoying the atmosphere. He quickly started setting national records, first in the depth category Constant Weight no fins, then also in the pool with dynamic no fins. By 2011, he had set national records in 5 of the 6 competitive disciplines.

International Safety Diver

He took a break from competing, but because he loves the social aspect of freediving so much, he stayed around as a safety diver. In 2011 and 2012 he was voted ‘best safety diver’ by AIDA members. 2011 was also the year he became an instructor, and the year a friend lent him a serious underwater camera.

Underwater Photographer

As a trained graphic artist and photographer, Daan was hesitant to see if his passions would combine, but as the camera clicked underwater, so did something in his mind, and now it’s rare to see him underwater without a camera. His work has been published in newspapers, magazines and major websites, and he has shot video for TV programs, commercials and documentaries.

Relaxed Training Methodology

As an instructor who has worked a lot with children with special needs and adults with a fear of water, Daan approaches teaching in a fluid, individual and relaxed way. He has a soft spot for sharks (and for ginger candies), and hopes to soon be made fun of again by dolphins.

Daan's Qualifications:

  • SSI Level 2 Instructor
  • PADI Master Instructor
  • AIDA Instructor
  • AIDA Judge
  • EFR Instructor
  • O2 Provider Instructor
  • Full HSE Medical
