PADI Freediver Course

PADI FREEDIVER COURSE

Your first step toward discovering why freediving is becoming a popular way to explore beneath the waves. No previous freediving course is required.


Freediving is about inward power, discipline and control. If you've always wanted to enter the underwater world quietly, on your own terms, staying as long as your breath allows, then freediving is for you. Taking the PADI Freediver course is your first step toward discovering why freediving is becoming a popular way to explore beneath the waves.


To enroll in a PADI Freediver course you must be at least 12 years old. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with snorkeling, skin diving, or freediving is required. 

REDUCE YOUR STRESS

You need to reach a deep level of relaxation so you can dive safely and enjoy it. The more relaxed you are, the more oxygen you´ll have and, for instance, the more time you'll spend underwater. 

IMPROVE YOUR JOINT HEALTH

Water activities can lower intra-articular pressure, reduce swelling, and potentially improve range of motion.

A COMPLEMENT TO SCUBA DIVING

Through freediving, you learn techniques to stay calm underwater and since many scuba diving accidents are related to panic in an unexpected scenario, you'll be able to overcome this with ease.

BOOK NOW

The PADI Freediver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge development about freediving principles through independent study with PADI Freediver eLearning (or your instructor may conduct class sessions if not available in a language you understand).
  • Confined water session to learn breathhold techniques as well as 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.

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.
