Basic Freediver PADI
The PADI Basic Freediver course is a subset of the PADI Freediver course. It’s a great first step for developing solid freediving skills. You learn basic freediving principles and focus on practicing breathhold techniques in a pool or confined water site.
In the PADI Basic 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.
What will you learn as a PADI Freediver?
The PADI Freediver course consists of two main phases:
- Knowledge development through independent study with the PADIFreediver Touch™ (or your instructor may conduct class sessions).
- Confined water session to learn breathhold techniques as well as static and dynamic apnea, plus proper buddy procedures.
- Goal – static apnea of 90 seconds and dynamic apnea of 25 metres/80 feet.
