Your freediving adventure begins here. PADI Freediver course starts with PADI’s online eLearning theory training. Then we move to the pool to practice your new skills. Finally, you will experience two open water (ocean/lake) training dive sessions.

The PADI Freediver course will introduce you to the four main disciplines in freediving including static apnea (holding your breath while still in water), dynamic apnea (holding your breath while swimming horizontally in order to achieve distance), free immersion (pulling oneself down a guideline to depth), and constant weight (diving down to depth).
