Approach fish closer than anyone usually can and dive freely in the sea. For thousands of years, man has sought the ability to explore the underwater world. More than just a physical challenge, developed mental skills and careful preparation allow you to explore the underwater world in the total silence.
Freediving is breath-hold diving. Without the assistance of a breathing apparatus, you will learn to control your mind and your breathing and you will go deeper, longer, further in the underwater world. You will be taught to understand the physiological responses of your body and the psychological responses of your mind.
With no prior experience with snorkeling, skin diving or free-diving required, you will learn to perform three different ways of free diving: static apnea, dynamic apnea and constant weight diving.
The course is divided into three segments:
- Knowledge development about free-diving principles through independent study with PADI Freediver eLearning.
- Confined water session to learn breath-hold techniques as well as static and dynamic apnea, with a goal of 1m30s static apnea and 25m dynamic.
- Open water sessions to practice free immersion and constant weight free-dives, plus proper buddy procedures to a depth of 10m.
