NEXT COURSE

JULY 30 - AUG 1

This course provides a solid introduction to the world of freediving.

Appropriate for beginner freedivers, self-taught divers, spearfishers and water sports enthusiasts, this course will establish good technique, solid safety skills and a deeper understanding of freedive physiology.

This course will be taught as a combination of theory sessions, pool sessions and open water sessions over the course of 2.5 days.

We will cover the physiology and physics of freediving alongside learning proper technique and then apply all this knowledge during your in-water sessions in both the pool and the ocean.

Course topics
  • Physiology & Physics of Freediving
  • Relaxation & Breathing for Breath-Holds
  • Extending Breath-Hold Time
  • Proper Equalization Technique
  • Water Entry & Finning Technique
  • Freediving Equipment
  • Freediving Disciplines
  • Safety & Rescue Skills
Pre-requisites
  • 18 years + (16 years + with parent/guardian consent)
  • Swim at least 300m non-stop with mask, fins and snorkel
Requirements to pass
  • 2 minute static apnea (breath-hold in pool)
  • 40 meters dynamic apnea (swimming horizontally underwater in the pool)
  • 16 meters depth dive (max depth 20 meters)
  • Passing rate on theoretical exam (75%)
