BIO

Magali is an internationally known Canadian freediver who takes adventure to the next level. She specializes in under-ice freediving, pushing boundaries in some of the harshest environments. Her skills and passions in this field have been recognized in multiple television and magazine features worldwide.

 

Professionally, she works as a rope access supervisor, and in between that and freediving she is putting her heart into rebuilding a 1966 wooden fishing troller. 

 

In 2018, she became the 16th woman in North America to become a rope access supervisor. This is the main source of income that enables her to renovate her boat. In addition to rope access, she is a commercial diver (hardhat), structural welder, millwright apprentice and soon to be 100-ton captain. 

 

She wants the world to understand that women can do big, dangerous, exciting, wonderful, and difficult things. Her achievements add to her presence on social media and have a positive impact on other women’s lives. Empowering women to pursue careers and hobbies in male dominated fields is something she constantly strive for. 

 

She likes to fill her time, and always pursue big goals. 

 

Last January, Magali became the proud new owner of a wooden commercial fishing troller. She is doing a full rebuild and will get her back fishing again. Many people have been intrigued by this massive project and tagged along to follow her updates on social media.

Please tag along in the adventures, and if you wish to help with the restoration, you can donate on the GoFundMe here:
