Pissouri Bay Freediving
Seven tenths of our planet is covered in water and waiting to be explored!
As a species originating in and maintaining close ties with the oceans, we still possess many adaptations to breath-hold diving, similar to other diving mammals. With training you can learn to use and enhance these natural adaptations to life underwater and be amazed at what you can do and where you can go.
A unique combination of physical and mental skill, freediving is also great for general fitness, requiring both aerobic and anaerobic exercise but involving little shock stresses on the body.
People freedive for many reasons, only a select few to compete. Some freedive for relaxation, to explore the ocean, underwater photography, wreck diving, or just to challenge themselves.

So If you’ve always wanted to enter the underwater world quietly, on your own terms, staying as long your breath allows, then freediving is for you. Taking the PADI Freediver program is your step towards discovering the underwater world in a whole new way. Beginning with the PADI Freediver certification, you will gain the training and discipline needed to stay safe during breath hold dives. Afterwards, you can continue your education and progress to new depths with the PADI Advanced Freediver, Master Freediver and Instructor level courses.

What will you learn


Freediving


PADI Basic Freediver

The PADI Basic Freediver course is suitable for those who have never experienced Freediving before and are looking for a basic introductory course. This course consists of:
  • Knowledge development about freediving principles through independent study with the PADI Freediver TouchTM (your instructor may conduct class sessions.)
  • Confined water session to learn breath hold techniques and static and dynamic apnea. Goal – static apnea of 90 seconds and dynamic apnea of 25 metres/80 feet.

  • PADI Freediver

    The PADI Freediver course consists of three main phases:
  • Knowledge development about freediving principles through independent study with the PADI Freediver TouchTM (your instructor may conduct class sessions.)
  • Confined water session to learn breath hold techniques and static and dynamic apnea. Goal – static apnea of 90 seconds and dynamic apnea of 25 metres/80 feet.
  • Open water sessions to practice free immersion and constant weight freedives, plus proper buddy procedures. Goal – constant weight freedive of 10 metres/30 feet.

  • Open water sessions to practice deeper free immersion and constant weight freedives, along with additional buddy procedures and rescue techniques. Goal – constant weight freedive of 20 metres/65 feet (15 metres/50 feet for freedivers younger than 18)

  • PADI Master Freediver

    The PADI Master Freediver course consists of three main phases:
  • Knowledge development about nutrition, relaxation and advanced breathing techniques. You’ll study independently using the PADI Freediver TouchTM (your instructor may conduct class sessions.) You’ll also complete independent research as part of the Master Freediver Assignment.
  • Confined water session to improve static and dynamic apnea attempts, including no fins dynamic apnea. Goal – static apnea of 3 minutes, 30 seconds and dynamic apnea of 70 metres/230 feet.
  • Open water sessions to practice mouthfill equalization and perform warm-up and workup dives for free immersion and constant weight freediving. Goal – constant weight freedive of 27 metres/90 feet.
