Freediving and Breath Work Courses

Basic Freediver Course

The PADI Basic Freediver is a great first step for developing solid freediving skills. You learn basic freediving principles and focus on practicing breathhold techniques in a pool or confined water site.

It consists of two main phases:

  1. Knowledge development about freediving principles through independent study with PADI Freediver eLearning

  2. Confined water session to learn breathhold techniques as well as static and dynamic apnea.

 

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