The Freediver Course is designed for those with little or no experience in the ocean and for those who have never experienced formal education in freediving although have some underwater experience.

This course will enable you to feel safe and comfortable when freediving to depths of up to 20 metres, and to improve what you already can do even to double your potential. Although this might sound difficult to achieve in a few days, you will be surprised what an experienced team of Freediving Instructors can do for you. Our unique breathing techniques, together with the effective structure of the course program in the classroom and water sessions creates a fun educative environment and a successful freediving experience.

The Freediver Course runs for 2 days and is divided into two classroom lessons and two water sessions. During our classroom session instructors interact with students using videos, questions and different exercises which help to improve confidence, knowledge and techniques prior to the afternoon’s water session. During our water sessions we have a normal ratio of 2 students to 1 Instructor, with an absolute maximum of 3 to 1; allowing for greater personalized attention. Our Instructors are with the you at all times while underwater regardless of depth, thus increasing your confidence and safety.

The only requirement to get certified as a Freediver is to perform a rescue exercise from a depth of 6 meters during  the second day.

Upon completion of the Freediver Course, you will receive a certification as well as private online access to the Freediver Course materials, so that you can maintain your freediving knowledge.

If you fall in love with freediving and have 3 more days for learning  you can continue with the Advanced Course right after the Freediver Course.
