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.
To enroll in a PADI Basic Freediver course you must be 12 years old or older. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with snorkeling, scuba diving or freediving is required.
The PADI Basic Freediver course consists of two main phases:
- Knowledge development through independent study with the PADI Freediver Touch™ (or your instructor may conduct class sessions if not available in a language you understand).
- Confined water session to learn breathholding 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.
