Qatar Sub Freediving Facility
A full service FII Freediving Facility & spearfishing store operating out of Doha, Qatar...
Owner and operator, Khalid Al-Hamadi is one of the leading figures of modern spearfishing and freediving in the Middle East. His original vision was to reintroduce the Qataris to this exciting sport - a sport embedded in their DNA. Long before oil breath-hold diving for oysters (Pearl Diving) was a way of life in this region and modern life had lead them away from the sea.
Khalid's deep passion for spearfishing and freediving has taken him all around the world. In 2010, he flew to Kona, Hawaii where he trained with FII's Director of Education and 13 Time Freediving World Record Holder Martin Stepanek where he attained his FII Instructor certification. Khalid embraced the FII philosophy and returned to educate the Middle East on safe freediving practices. His deep love of the sport and growing following soon landed him in the public eye as a TV personality on the Al-Rayyan Channel, in films and as a public speaker at national events. Khalid grasped this opportunity to achieve his goal, inspiring a nation to embrace an activity connecting them with their past and doing so in a safe manner through modern freediving education.
In 2013, Qatar Sub became the first FII Freediving Facility in the Middle East with instructors now operating in Qatar, Dubai, and Kuwait.
Qatar Sub proudly carries a range of top brands including Rob Allan, Omer, Deep Apnea, Yazbeck, Hammerhead, Torelli, DiveR, Pathos and Freedivers.
