About Andrea Zuccari

In recent years, Andrea Zuccari has devoted his entire life to freediving.

Zuccari broke a record for freediving in 2014 by descending 175 meters (574 feet) without a mask. In just 3 minutes and 13 seconds, he accomplished this feat, breaking the previous record for Italy and rising to the position of second-deepest male freediver in the world.

His athletic accomplishments and interactions with numerous athletes from around the globe have given him the opportunity to accumulate a significant amount of baggage and valuable experience in the field of deep freediving.

Athletes from all over the world travel to its facility, the Freediving World Apnea Centre, to benefit from the special deep freediving resources and receive training advice.

However, in addition to this physical oddity, Andrea’s study of a dry and sea training protocol to develop the ability to equalize in depth led him to become one of the world’s foremost experts on this subject, which is so challenging for most people, freediving equalization. Andrea was undoubtedly born with an anatomical conformation of the organs involved in the equalization that facilitates him in his amazing performances.

At specific times of the year, Andrea Zuccari was employed in Sharm el Sheik where he instructs freedivers of all skill levels, from novices to elite athletes, in the sport of freediving. But during some months of the year, he travels to locations where his workshops are needed.

Andrea Zuccari was a highly skilled freediver and scuba diver who was well-versed in the area’s waters; his disappearance has shocked the diving community.
