PADI Freediver Course

Freediving is about inward power, discipline and control. If you’ve always wanted to enter the underwater world quietly, on your own terms, staying as long as your breath allows, then freediving is for you. Taking the PADI Freediver course is your first step toward discovering why freediving is becoming a popular way to explore beneath the waves.

During the PADI free diver course with Aussie Divers Phuket you will learn proper breathing techniques, safety procedures and efficient fining techniques, which will allow you to dive down to at least 10 meters and hold your breath for over 90 seconds.

Sounds impossible to do it in a few days? With the help of our experienced PADI Freediving Instructor’s you will achieve it in a fun and relax way.

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 an understanding of 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.

By the end of the confined water freediving sessions you should be able to do a static apnea of 90 seconds and dynamic apnea of 25 metres/80 feet, usually in a swimming pool that will assist you before you enter the open water.
