Freediver course

The course is designed to develop theoretical and practical tools for freediving, breathing and safety, and to reveal our own aquatic capabilities that have been dormant in us since our early days as a marine mammal.

During the course we will maximize our freediving experience and confidence under the water with advanced breathing technique, a professional and experienced instructors team and a tailor made education system for each student in the water.

Theory class:

You will learn from our instructors the physiology of freediving, how to align your body and move correctly in the aquatic environment, you will practice equalization and breathing technique, safety and rescue. so you'll be ready to jump in and start diving.



youll enjoy a ratio of 1:3 instructor students.

this will ensure personal and specific instruction for each student to improve the comfortabilty and technique under the water.

the instructor will escort the diver the whole dive, from the breathing, all the way down and back up regardless of the depth, this will maximaize the safty,  the feeling of confidnce and will improve your capabilitys.
