Discover Freediving

If you've ever wondered what freediving is about but are unsure if you will like it or don't have time to commit to one of our freediving courses, our Discover Freediving Program gives you the perfect opportunity to experience freediving in a relaxed and comfortable way.


Basic Freediver

The PADI Basic Freediver course is a subset of the PADI Freediver course. It’s a great first step for developing solid freediving skills. You learn basic freediving principles and focus on practicing breathhold techniques in a pool. This course is perfect if you don’t have the time to take the full Freediver course or if you don’t want (yet!) to practice in the Open Water. The Basic Freediver course delivers a recognized PADI certification. You can upgrade your Basic Freediver certification to the FREEDIVER level by taking one extra day to complete the open water session whenever you want.


PADI Freediver

The PADI Freediver course introduces you to static, dynamic and constant weight freediving knowledge and skills. It is intended for the enthusiastic freedivers as opposed to casual snorkelers or skin divers, so it emphasises the specialised breathing techniques, equipment, procedures and safety issues associated with freediving.


PADI Advanced Freediver

The PADI Advanced Freediver course continues the development of freedivers who have mastered the fundamental knowledge and skills for static, dynamic and constant weight freediving. It is intended for freediving enthusiasts who wish to progress by furthering their knowledge and skills beyond those of PADI Freediver level.


PADI Master Freediver

If you’re an advanced freediver who wants to learn how to fine-tune your freediving skills and knowledge so that you can approach elite freediving levels, then the PADI Master Freediver course is for you. Through focused sessions, you’ll bring your static apnea, dynamic apnea, free immersion and constant weight skills to the next level.
