Activate your inner potential to extend your breathholds and experience the underwater world like never before.
With no heavy equipment, you will move underwater with ease and find a complete sense of becoming one with the ocean. Learning to freedive is much easier than you think with our range of recreational freediving programs for all ages. Taking the Freediver course is your first step toward discovering why freediving is becoming a popular way to explore beneath the waves.
To enroll in a Freediver course you must be at least 12 years old. You need strong swimming skills and in good physical health to successfully complete this course. No prior experience with snorkeling, skin diving or freediving is required. Younger than 12? 8 year olds and older can enroll in the Discover Freediving course. $399
The Freediver course consists of three main phases:
Knowledge development about freediving principles through independent study with Freediver eLearning
Confined water session to learn breathhold techniques as well as static and dynamic apnea. Goal - static apnea of 90 seconds and dynamic apnea of 25 metres/80 feet.
Open water sessions to practice free immersion and constant weight freedives, plus proper buddy procedures. Goal - constant weight freedive of 10 metres/30 feet.
In the Freediver course, you learn to use a mask, snorkel and fins, and may also use a wetsuit and weight belt. A well fitted open-cell freediving wetsuit with a hood will be an important tool to completing this course. Using gear designed specifically for freediving is best. However, in this course, you may be able to use snorkeling equipment you already own.
