As the fortunate winner of the TUDOR Free Diving Incentive Program, I had the privilege of representing TUDOR Boutique GWC among a group of diving enthusiasts from Canada and the US to join in 2023 TUDOR’s Free Diving Experience. Tulum Cancun, Mexico, served as the picturesque backdrop for an exclusive four-day escapade in mid-November, hosted at the enchanting Maria Del Mar Boutique Hotel. My journey would unravel into an extraordinary odyssey, immersing me in the depths of the ocean and the essence of luxury.
