Record-breaking free-diver leads guests on ocean adventures

When Ms Hanli Prinsloo started diving 18 years ago, she was not interested in competitions, yet she went on to smash 11 national recordsin her home country of South Africa.

It was the experience of being underwater that got her hooked.

In 2012, the free-diver stopped competing to focus on teaching her craft to the world.

Ultimately, Ms Prinsloo’s life mission is to save oceans – she founded the non-profit I Am Water Ocean Conservation in 2010 – and free-diving is her tool to spread the message.

Ms Prinsloo, 39, previously collaborated with travel companies such as Extraordinary Journeys from the US and Steppes Travel from Britain.

For the first time, she is focusing her work in South-east Asia. Teaming up with luxury tour operator Jacada Travel – which is headquartered in London – on its new Departures To The Last Wilderness journeys, she hopes to get more travellers involved in ocean conservation.
