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.

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).

When you enroll 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.

The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim. But rather it is for your and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to kee [...]
