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).

Prerequisites

To enroll in the PADI Advanced Freediver course you must be 15 years old or older.

Have a PADI Freediver certification.

Be trained and current for first aid and CPR within the previous two years (Ask your instructor about Emergency First Response CPR and first aid courses).

The Freediving Equipment You Use

In the PADI Advanced Freediver course, you need to have a free diving mask (low volume recommended), snorkel, freediving fins, wetsuit and weight belt. Your instructor may allow you to use monofins. You’ll also need a surface signaling device and a freediving computer (or depth gauge and timer).

The Learning Materials You Need

When you enrol in this course Aussie Divers Phuket will provide you with the PADI Freediver Touch tablet app (for use with a smartphone/tablet). The Touch is an interactive study tool that gives you the background information you need to freedive safely and allows you to study at your own pace.

Good news – the PADI Freediver Touch also includes all study materials for the PADI Freediver, Advanced Freediver and Master Freediver courses.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course then the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres with any stroke and also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes. The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim, but rather it is for yours and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to keep you afloat [...]

Low Season Diving in Phuket

Dont let the forecasts fool you Firstly don't always believe the online weather forecast's. With the high humidity, we have year round here in Phuket, a lot of the online weather sites & App's will simply predict thunderstorms & rain 365 days of the year. They are happy to get this correct maybe 40% of the time..... We actually still have some very nice sunny days during the monsoonal season, and the diving can still be really good. Plus the beaches are less crowded and airfares & accommodation much cheaper, it's sounding like a win-win all round! If you are looking for a local forecast site/app we generally recommend looking at [...]
