Taking the PADI Freediver course provides you with the proper skills and knowledge to freedive to a depths of between 10 -16 meters in the most relaxed and safest manner possible.

As an introductory offer, the course includes a pair of Freediver Fins valued at $140. (Supplied on the first day of the course)

To enrol in a PADI Freediver course, you must be at least 15 years old. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with snorkelling, skin diving or freediving is required.


The PADI Freediver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge development about freediving principles through independent study with the PADI Freediver Touch
  • Confined water session to learn breath hold techniques as well as static and dynamic apnea. Goal - static apnea of 90 seconds and dynamic apnea of 25 meters.
  • Open water sessions to practice free immersion and constant weight freedives, plus proper buddy procedures. Goal -constant weight freedive of 10-16 meters.

  • Certification as a PADI Freediver

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 freediving course, you may be able to use snorkeling equipment you already own. Mask, snorkel & wetsuit are available for hire but this is scuba gear and you may find it harder to meet the performance requirements in hire gear as it is not specific freediving equipment.

Note: If you intend on completing the PADI Advanced Freediver Course, you will be required to have Freediver specific equipment. Gear that you normally use for SCUBA will prevent you from achieving the performance requirements. Please speak to one of our staff members and we can arrange an equipment package for you.
To the Advanced Freediver you are also required to have a current First Aid qualification. This can be done on the first day of the course if required.

Freediving is a demanding activity and can be strenuous and you need to be in good health to participate. If you have any questions as to whether or not you are fit to freedive, consult with your physician.
The purpose of the Medical Questionnaire is to find out if you should be examined by a physician before participating in freediving activities. A positive response to a question does not necessarily disqualify you from diving. A positive response means that there is a preexisting condition that may affect your safety while freediving and you must seek the advice of a physician.
Please answer the following questions on your past and present medical history with a YES or NO. If you are not sure, answer YES. If any of these items apply to you, you must consult with a physician prior to participating in freediving.
