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 Freediver course is your first step toward discovering why freediving is becoming a popular way to explore beneath the waves. No prior experience with snorkeling, skin diving or freediving is required.
In the Freediver 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 whether the equipment you have is acceptable for this course.
The Freediver certification requires one pool session and two open water dives to complete, and is typically scheduled in conjunction with a SeaVentures trip. Click here to view our trip calendar, and talk to one of our staff to schedule your class.
