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).
To enrol in a PADI Freediver course:
You must be over 15 years of age
You must have adequate swimming skills
You need to be in good physical health
You do not need any prior freediving experience
The PADI Freediver course takes two days and is run throughout the year
