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 the PADI Freediver course is your first step toward discovering why freediving is becoming a popular way to explore beneath the waves.
To enroll in our PADI Freediver course you must be at least 15 years old. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with snorkeling, skin diving or freediving is required.
The PADI Freediver course consists of three main phases:
Knowledge development about freediving principles through independent study with PADI Freediver eLearning.
Confined water session to learn breathhold techniques as well as static and dynamic apnea.
Goal – static apnea of 90 seconds and dynamic apnea of 25 metres.
Open water sessions to practice free immersion and constant weight freedives, plus proper buddy procedures. Goal – constant weight freedive of 10 metres.
In the PADI Freediver course, you learn to use a mask, snorkel and fins, and may also use a wetsuit and weight belt. At our Freediving centre here in Tenerife we have a range of gear designed specifically for freediving, however, you can use snorkeling equipment if you already own it.
