Freediving is about inward power, discipline and control.
If you’ve always wanted to enter the underwater world quietly, on your own terms, staying as long as your breath allows, then freediving is for you.
The PADI Freediver course consists of three main phases:
– Knowledge Development about freediving principles through class sections.
– 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.
You must be at least 15 years old. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health.
Refine your static and dinamic skills in confined and open water session with the PADI Advanced Freediver course.
In the PADI Freediver course, you learn to use a mask, snorkel and fins, and may also use a wetsuit and weight belt. Using gear designed specifically for freediving is best, however, in this course, you may be able to use snorkeling equipment you already own.
