Basic freediver course
The Padi Basic Freediver introduces the student to static freediving in confined water, beach or pool. The student freediver can prepare the theory through selfstudy with the padi touch ap. Then we will practise and train in our relaxing beach center where you will practise breathhold techniques, first training and later under water from the beach.
The PADI Freediver is a two day course; you can prepare the theory through selfstudy with the padi touch ap which will be emailed to you. From your hotel hammock you can watch the videos and complete the knowledge reviews. Once you are ready for action we'll train in our relaxing beach center learning more about relaxation and breathing techniques. Once you get the hang of things we ll get wet and start the confined water training in static and dynamic apnea from the beach. You will learn more about the freediving equipment, safety regulations, specialised breathing and the physics & physiology of freediving. You'lll be amazed of the progress you can make in just a short time, by the end of the course you will be able to hold your breath up to 2 minutes with ease.
The second day we'll take you out to practise your new freediving skills in open water, after this training day you will be able to freedive to 10 to 16 meters.
*Static apnea: is holding your breath under water as long as you can without moving.
*Dynamic apnea: is swimming as far underwater as you can on a single breath.
Advanced freediver course
The PADI Advanced Freediver course allows you to take your freediving skills to the next level and freedive to a depth of 16 to 24 meters.
The course will continue the journey, focusing even more on your own breatholding time and the more athletic part of the freediving sport. The advanced freediver will help you to push your limits to longer and deeper dives, allowing you to come closer to underwater marine life and create an even stronger connection between body, mind and environment.
The course takes two days; the theory can be studied first on your padi touch ap. Then we will be on the beach, where skills will be refreshed and improved. There will be more emphasis on stretching and relaxation before a dive, you will push your static and dynamic abilities and practice safety regulations. The second day will be on the boat where you will freedive close to a line to greater depths. You will push your limits and depending on your performance level you will be able to freedive to 24 metres, exploring the ocean and challenging yourself.
