In this course, you will be taught the fundamental building blocks of Freediving. You will learn freediving skills and techniques and experience first hand how these will benefit you within an aquatic environment. You will learn about the physics and physiology of freediving and how your body adapts to being at depth. The PFI Freediver course will allow you to reach depths of up to 20m/66' deep during our open water sessions. In confined water sessions, the PFI Freediver course will also have you explore and practice Static Apnea with the goal of increasing your breath-hold capabilities and learning to better manage your body for freediving.

The focus of instructional material in the PFI Freediver course will be on:

  • Proper safety practices and procedures as well as rescue and risk management;

  • Proper surface prep and recovery breathing techniques for Freediving and Snorkelling;

  • Open-water and confined-water skills development. Take what you learn in the classroom to the pool, and from the pool to the ocean; and

  • Learn about proper freediving equipment: why it works and how to maintain it.
