WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

The Freediver course is designed for those, with little or no experience in the water, interested in learning the fundamentals of freediving.

This course is also the starting point for experienced snorkelers and spearfishers without freediving certification.

WHAT WILL YOU ACHIEVE?

This course will cover all the skills you need to safely and comfortably freedive to depth of up to 20metres.

Although this might sound difficult to achieve in a couple of days, you will be surprised what an experienced freediving instructor can do for you.

Our unique breathing techniques together with the effective structure of the course program creates a stress free, supportive, fun, educative environment and a successful freediving experience.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Our Freediver course runs for 2 days and is divided into 2 academic sessions and 2 water sessions.

During our theory session, the instructor will interact with you using videos, questions, one-on-one feedback and different breathing exercises which help to improve confidence, knowledge and techniques prior to the water session.

During the water session, we have a normal ratio of 2 students to 1 instructor, with an absolute maximum 3 to 1, allowing for greater personalized attention and tuition. The instructor always dives with each and every student to increase their confidence in their new abilities, thus making faster progress, but also to guarantee everyone’s safety which is our most important concern.

Upon completion of the course, you will be certified  as an Apnea Total Freediver. We will also send you a private online access to the Apnea Total Freediver course materials so that you can maintain your freediving knowledge.
