  • 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: Transport is not included for this course, because of social distancing if you do not have your own transport then the best option is an Uber to and from the site.
