TheTow Diving was actually invented in Fernando de Noronha. It uses the same equipment used in free diving -just a mask, snorkel and fins.
Holding a small board and being towed by a small motorboat, you are able to experience the sensation of flying and also maneuver the board to turn, go up and down. It depends on your breath. A small theoretical class is given on board to present the procedures of Tow Diving and signs used to communicate with the motorboat.
Tow Diving is different from the snorkelling because you can cover a much larger area than if you were only swimming with fins.
