Freediving Level 1: Become Freediver
Learn the basics of freediving and be guided with a freediver instructor to the exciting and relaxing world of freediving.
You will learn the theories behind freediving, its purpose, benefits and knowledge development in the academics section on freediving that you will need once you step into the world of freediving. You will be guided by our freediver instructor on learning how to breath longer while you’re still on the surface and walk through on what to do once you step foot below the water surface.
Once you are taught by the basics and knowledge development of freediving, you will be dipping to a confined water or pool training to test your skills and limits on your first freedive. Applying the basic skills from the academic sessions, you will now submerge into the pool and test holding your breath as long as possible while floating face down on the surface of the pool.
In the event that the instructor finds your freediving skills are ready for an actual dive, you will be guided to freedive down to a depth of 20 metres (65ft) with your instructor and test your limit with the newly acquired skills of freediving.
