Duration: 3 days
Freediving is about inward power, discipline and control. If you’ve always wanted to enter the underwater world quietly, on your own terms, staying only as long as your breath allows, then freediving is for you. This course will help you breakthrough mental and physical barriers and allow you to reach depths you never though you could go on one breath. Taking the PADI Freediver course with Ocean Experiences is your first step toward discovering why freediving is becoming the most popular way to explore beneath the surface.
The PADI Freediver course consists of three main phases:
Knowledge development about freediving principles through independent study with the PADI Freediver Touch™ or your instructor may conduct class sessions if this not available to you.
Confined water session to learn breath hold techniques as well as practicing static and dynamic apnea.
Open water sessions to practice free immersion and constant weight free dives, proper buddy procedures and more.
You can book online through our website or contact us directly to get the PADI Freediver Touch tablet app. The Touch is an interactive study tool that allows you to study at your own pace.
