PADI BASIC FREEDIVER COURSE

The PADI Basic Freediver Course is the first course on your journey of freediving adventures! Freediving is a rapidly growing sport. Our classes are the first step towards underwater photography, personal challenge and growth, and even into the world of freediving competition.


Although freediving appears to be a simple activity, there is a lot to learn about how to freedive safely and what happens to your body during longer breathhold dives. We will introduce you to static and dynamic breathholds, increased depth and more time underwater. In addition, we’ll teach you how to ensure your personal safety, as well as your buddies while freediving. Call or email us to register for a course.
