Our instructor



Bartosz (Bart) Kasza was born in Poland, and for the past 20 years has lived in Chicago. He is a SSI Level 1 instructor, and one of the core members of the Chicago Freediving community since 2018.

Bart`s interest in diving started about six years ago. Before that, he had successful careers as a photographer, actor, and hair dresser. He decided to overcome the fear of depth and started learning scuba diving at first. In 2018, he came across freediving and became fascinated with it. Since then, Bart dedicated his full attention to learning and teaching freediving. He is constantly working on ways to improve and educate himself. So far, he has succeeded in diving as deep as 35 meters/115 feet. 

Bart has trained with world-class freedivers and has been teaching students both in the U.S. and Mexico. He is very attentive and knowledgeable, getting straight to the point, so you don`t feel overwhelmed. Bart`s main goal is to make sure you enjoy freediving and have fun in a safe and smart way. 

Bart loves to share his passion and grow the freediving community by teaching students in Chicago and Midwest, as well as taking their learned skills to freediving destinations all over the world!
