Freediver Course

12,000 PESOS  / 2 days

The Freediver Course is designed for those with little or no experience in the ocean.

This course will enable you to feel safe and comfortable when freediving to depths of up to 20 metres. 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 2 academic lessons and 2 water sessions. During our academic classroom session the Instructors will interact with the students using videos, questions and different breathing exercises which will help to improve confidence, knowledge and techniques prior to the afternoons water session. During our water sessions we have a normal ratio of 2 students for 1 Instructor, with an absolute maximum of 3 students for 1 Instructor; which allows for greater personalised attention and tuition. The Instructors will be with the students at all times while underwater regardless of depth, thus increasing student confidence and safety.

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