PADI Basic Free Diver Course

This course is a subset of the PADI Freediver course. It’s a great introduction to free diving, focusing on developing solid freediving skills. You learn basic freediving principles and focus on practicing breathhold techniques in a pool or confined water site. The PADI Basic Freediver course is the very first level of the four available PADI courses for freediving. ( Basic FreeDiver, Freediver, Advanced Freediver and Master Freediver) It is a great first step for developing solid freediving skills.

What Is Involved

The PADI Basic Freediver Course consists of 2 basic parts:

The Freediver Theory, which can be done with the downloadable PADI Freediver Touch on a smartphone or tablet. The theory will cover the basic’s of what happens to your body when you are free diving. As well as the pressure changes at depth. Along with plenty of tips on how to improve your apnea technics.

Confined Water Session – Pool where you will learn and develop your freediving technics that can then be applied to open water free diving. This will included breathing technics, proper buddy procedures, body positioning for freediving and rescue skills. Goal – static apnea of 90 seconds and dynamic apnea of 25 metres/80 feet.

Optional Open Water Dives* at least 1 dive in the open water where you will learn to dive deeper and start extending your personal limits (additional charge’s for this optional dive)

Prerequisites

To enroll in the PADI Basic Freediver course you must be 12 years old or older. You need good swimming ability and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with snorkeling, skin diving or freediving is required however.

The Freediving Equipment You Use

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

A question we often get asked is how long will my scuba tank last? Unfortunately there is no simple answer to that question as there are a few variables.

In order to remove the CO2 from your lungs while scuba diving, you must inhale air. So, the more exercise you do under the water the more you will breathe, and the quicker you will use your [...]
