The Apnea Total Freediver Course is designed for those with some experience in the ocean and who have never experienced formal education before in freediving. It is best to have some experience with freediving, snorkelling or spearfishing for this course. If you are a complete beginner, look into the PADI Basic Freediver Course offered here as well. 

This course will enable you to feel safe and comfortable when freediving to depths of up to 20 metres, and to improve what you can already do.

 

Although this might sound difficult to achieve in a few days, you will be surprised what an experienced team of Freediving Instructors can do for you.

 

Our unique breathing techniques, together with the effective structure of the course program in the classroom and water sessions creates a fun educative environment and a successful freediving experience.

The Freediver Course runs for 2 days and is divided into two academic lessons and two water sessions. During our academic classroom session Instructors interact with students using videos, questions and different breathing exercises which help to improve confidence, knowledge and techniques prior to the afternoon’s water session.

 

During our water sessions we have an absolute maximum of 4 students to 1 instructor; allowing for greater personalised attention and tuition. Our Instructors are with the students at all times while underwater regardless of depth, thus increasing student confidence and safety.

Upon completion of the Freediver Course, you will receive a certification as well as private online access to the Freediver Course materials, so that you can maintain your freediving knowledge.
