Advanced Freediver Course

Price: 9,000 Baht

In the Advanced Freediver Course, you will discover your true aquatic potential and increase your breath-hold abilities and performance beyond your imagination!

Students will be surprised to achieve depths of over 30 meters and static apnea times of 3+ minutes on one breath alone. Advanced breathing techniques together with our specific preparation for deep dives will make this possible, even if you have just started this sport.

This 3-day course is divided into 3 classroom sessions, 1 pool session, and 2 deep water sessions. You will start with an introduction to the discipline of Static Apnea, where you will discover that your body can suspend respiration for several minutes without feeling the urge to breathe. Then in the following days during our deep diving water sessions, you will enjoy achieving new depths with knowledge, control, and comfort. Highly experienced Apnea Total instructors will be by your side at all times and will guide you with precise instructions on breathing and relaxation techniques necessary to achieve your true potential.

Upon completion of the course, you will receive a certification as well as private online access to the course materials so you can maintain your freediving knowledg

Apnea Total Freediver certification, or equivalent certification level from another freediving organisation.

Keep hydrated! Bring water or a bottle to refill as we try to avoid plastic as much as possible. Sunscreen! (We have it in case you forget.) Wear a swimsuit.

Try to avoid alcohol the night before and coffee in the morning. Have a light, easy to digest breakfast.
