We teach PADI Basic Freediver, Freediver and Advanced Freediver
Who should take this course?
The PADI Basic Freediver course is a subset of the PADI Freediver course. It’s a great first step for developing solid freediving skills.
You learn basic freediving principles and focus on practicing breathhold techniques in a pool or confined water site.
To enroll in a PADI Basic Freediver course you must be 12 years old or older. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with snorkeling, skin diving or freediving is required.

Contact us and get the PADI Freediver Touch tablet app. The Touch is an interactive study tool that gives you the background information you need to freedive safely and allows you to study at your own pace.

What freediving gear will you use?
In the PADI Basic Freediver course, you learn to use a mask, snorkel and fins, and may also use a wetsuit and weight belt. Using gear designed specifically for freediving is best, however, in this course, you may be able to use snorkeling equipment you already own.
Check with us about the gear you’ll use during this course and get advice about everything you need.

If you love the ocean then you are going to love this. Whether you are a scuba diver already or not, it doesn’t matter! Free diving or breath-hold diving is the practice of making dives in the ocean on one breath.
