PADI Advanced Freediver Course
Achieving a new freediving time or reaching a new depth is an incredible feeling. It satisfies that very personal desire to do your best and be proud of what you can accomplish. The PADI Advanced Freediver course is designed to fulfil that personal need to refine and improve your freediving skills, allowing you to progress slowly while learning how your body performs during apnea.
The PADI Freediver course consists of three sections:
Knowledge Development about advanced freediving techniques and equipment through independent study with the PADIFreediver Touch. (an app with videos & Quizzes, allowing you to do the theory at home before the in-water sessions. Your instructor will be available to answer any questions or queries you may have as well)
2 x Confined Water Sessions to learn stretching and relaxation techniques as well as refine static and dynamic apnea.
Goal – Static Apnea of 2 minutes, 30 seconds (2 minutes for freedivers younger than 18)
Goal – Dynamic Apnea of 50m. (40m for freedivers younger than 18)
Open Water Sessions (Can be done on one day) to practice deeper ‘Free Immersion’ (FIM) and ‘Constant Weight’ (CWT) dives, along with additional buddy procedures and rescue techniques.
