PADI Free Diver

Full course $320.00

Free diving is about inward power, discipline, and control. If you’ve always wanted to enter the underwater world quietly, on your terms, staying as long as your breath allows, then freediving is for you.
The PADI Free Diver course consists of three main phases:
  • Knowledge development about freediving principles through independent study with PADI Freediver eLearning (which we can assign to you and usually takes students about 5 to 8 hours to complete).
  • Confined water session to learn breath hold techniques and static and dynamic apnea. Goal – static apnea of 90 seconds and dynamic apnea of 25 metres/80 feet.
  • Open water sessions to practice free immersion, constant weight freedives, and proper buddy procedures. Goal – constant weight freedive of 10 metres/30 feet.
The practical portion of the course takes 3 days with a schedule from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. or 1 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
The price includes a Professional Dive Instructor, PADI eLearning materials, free dive gear, boat transportation to the sites & snacks between sites.
After completing the course, you can come free diving with us and explore two sites at a student rate of only $60.00 to keep practicing your skills and for more exploration and fun in the water.
