The Basic Freediving course is a subset of the Freediving Level 1 course. This program provides you with the training and knowledge required to safely freedive with a buddy in pool/confined water environments to a depth of five meters. You will earn the SSI Basic Freediving certification after completing this program.
In the Basic Freediving course, you learn to use a mask, snorkel and fins, and may also use a wetsuit and weight belt. Using gear designed specifically for freediving is best, however, in this course, you may be able to use snorkeling equipment you already own. Check with SeaVentures to see if the equipment you have is acceptable for this course.
