Hi, I’m Roberta. Chances are, if you’ve found yourself here, you love the ocean. I do too. Born and raised in Vancouver and surrounded by water, I could never imagine a life away from it. I first explored our local waters as an avid scuba diver. Later, while working as a Dive Master, I discovered freediving and pursued it both competively and recreationally. Challenging myself, I swam longer and longer distances in the ocean, and eventually explored cold water swimming year round with no wetsuit.
Nowadays I switch from freediving to swimming, from suit to skin, and my focus has shifted to sharing my love of the ocean with others. With proper preparation and some basic knowledge, anyone can enjoy the ocean. Fear is only a result of a lack of information and experience, and both are available to you.
