PADI Advanced Free Diver Course

Achieving a new freediving time or reaching a new depth is an incredible feeling. It satisfies that very personal desire to do your best and be proud of what you can accomplish. The PADI Advanced Freediver course is designed to fulfill that personal need to refine and improve your freediving skills, allowing you to progress slowly while learning how your body performs during apnea.

What Is Involved

The PADI Freediver course consists of three main phases:

Knowledge Development which can be done online, with the PADI Freediver Touch App. This will give you a greater understanding of advanced freediving principles through independent study, this is a great way to get started prior to coming to Phuket, alternatively your instructor may conduct class sessions.

Confined Water Sessions to learn stretching and relaxation techniques as well as refine static and dynamic apnea. The goal of the Advanced confined water session is to reach a static apnea of 2 minutes, 30 seconds (2 minutes for freedivers younger than 18) and dynamic apnea of 50 metres/165 feet (40 metres/130 feet for freedivers younger than 18).

2 Days for open water sessions at Racha Yai to practice deeper free immersion and constant weight freedives, along with additional buddy procedures and rescue techniques. With the goal of achieving a constant weight freedive of 20 meters/65 feet (15 metres/50 feet for freedivers younger than 18).
