Hello! I’m Sheena. Nice to meet you. I’m a freediver and national record holder from Canada, but my freediving home base is in the Caribbean Sea. I love diving deep and helping others learn how to enjoy their time underwater.
Oh, and coffee.

About me

In 2015, I quit my job to travel for six months. Long story short, I discovered freediving, and skipped my flight home so that I could stay in the Caribbean and keep diving. Since then, I’ve lived in three countries, become an instructor, safety dived at the World Championships, and pulled myself down and back up a loooong line to set three national records in Free Immersion (my favorite discipline).

Now I’m splitting my time between work and training in an effort to keep going with this ridiculous, amazing sport. It’s a tricky lifestyle, but nothing beats getting to drink coffee next to the sea and to hold my breath underwater every day.

Check out this video recap of the second part of Blue Element 2018 to hear me speak a little about the national record I made during the competition. Plus, words from some of the other amazing female competitors (Nancy Gibson and Karla Mendez), and a Maaji-sponsored beach clean-up event.

Blue Element 2018 recap

Blue Element 2018 is a wrap, and despite a short and frustrating training period, I left Dominica with a new Canadian national record in Free Immersion (78m!), third place overall, a surprisingly easy personal best dive after the comp, and a big smile. Read about my experience here.
