Maximum 4 Students to 1 dive professional ratio.
Sessions will run in or near Cheltenham, VIC.
The PADI Freediver course consists in:
Theory review and breath workshop
You'll have completed the e-learning at home before the course, so we will use this time to review any questions you have and to reinforce the crucial safety features. Then we'll spend some time learning to relax through breathing and mindfulness.
Now you get comfortable holding your breath in a controlled environment. You'll learn to:
- hold your breath for 90s whilst remaining still
- swim 25m horizontally under water
- be a buddy and perform a rescue
It's a good idea to have a gap between the theory/pool work and the open water sessions. You'll be able to spend some time focusing on feeling comfortable with breathhold diving before the added challenges of open water.
In the PADI 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 your local dive center about the gear you'll use during this course and get advice about everything you need from your PADI Freediver Instructor.
Contact your local PADI Freediver Center or PADI Freediver Instructor and get the PADI Freediver eLearning mobile app, an interactive study tool that gives you the background information you need to freedive safely and allows you to study at your own pace.
