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.

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.
