Description

The Comprehensive Start into Freediving

Course Goals

This challenging three-day course is appropriate for beginners as well as intermediate and advanced freedivers with no prior certification. The formal training is designed to establish and verify theoretical understanding, effective safety procedures and in-water efficiency, while the additional training sessions allow for more fine-tuning and honing of skills.

The course is designed to cover not only the basics of freediving, but also goes into some depth in the science and understanding of the sport of freediving, making it a excellent primer for those who want to go on into more advanced freediving as well as a solid foundation for recreational freedivers, making their dives safer and more relaxed and enjoyable.

Schedule

Day 1

On the first day we meet at 10:00 at our Centre where we start by getting any left paperwork out of the way and go on with the classroom and pool training. We usually have lunch together at a restaurant nearby restaurant and then continue with theory and pool training until approximately 17:00-18:00, depending on progress during the day.

Day 2

Day two is the first open water day. We meet at 10:00 at the small longtail-pier in Chalong and leave with a traditional longtail boat to the open water training site, which is about a 30 minute ride. We have two sessions with a break for water and a snack and return between 14:00 and 15:00.

Day 3

The last day of this course begins with schedule much like the open water training on day two. After a lunch break, we meet at our centre for the written exam.

We are usually finished by 18:00 on day 3 of the course

Please note that all times are approximate and may differ for individual instances of this course. Please refer to your booking to verify the schedule.

Prerequisites

In order to enrol in this course, you need to be able to swim at least 200 metres non-stop (any style). Swimming is a basic requirement for any and all in-water activities. It is a simple skill that can guarantee your safety in any body of water, be it a pool or the open seas.

If your swimming is not that polished, never worry! We offer swim training for absolute beginners.

Certification

This beginner freediving course is a fully certified foundation course. Certifications are available from AIDA International, Apnea International or Padi.
