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.

“I recently completed my free diving course with Ocean Experiences and would highly suggest it as you learn how dangerous free diving can be if you are not aware of the risks, your limits and techniques involved. It was incredibly interesting and once the principles and techniques are understood and practiced, the practical side is so rewarding and anyone can do it! I would definitely suggest Adrenalized as the instructors are amazing, great equipment and have stock available (as well as a online store) to get you set up once you get into it. They also offer free dive trips around Cape Town which are fantastic and a great way to keep your fitness up after the course. Thank you for a great experience!”
