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 this course is your first step toward discovering why freediving is becoming a popular way to explore beneath the waves.

The PADI Basic Freediver course is a subset of the PADI Freediver course. Basic Freedivers only complete the knowledge development and confined water sessions. It’s a great first step for developing solid freediving skills. You learn basic freediving principles and focus on practicing breathhold techniques in our warm comfortable pool.
