COURSE CONTENT FREEDIVER
Freediving is directed inwards instead of outwards. You learn to explore how your body reacts to being underwater on a breath hold. No tanks, just you and the ocean. Taking the PADI Freediver course is your first step toward discovering why freediving is becoming more and more popular worldwide and is first choice among adventurous and physically fit people around the globe.
What's on the program?
1. The Padi Freediver course consists of three main phaes:
Knowledge development about freediving principles through independent study with the PADI Freediver Touch (or your instructor may conduct class sessions)
2. Confined water session to learn breathhold techniques as well as static and dynamic apnea. Goal: static apnea of 90 seconds and dynamic apnea of 25 meters/80 feet.
3. Open water sessions to practice free immersion and constant weight freedives, plus proper buddy procedures. Goal: constant weight freedive of 10 metres/30 feet.
Contact Seaquest Bohol Dive Center and get the PADI Freediver Touch tablet app. The touch is an interactive study tool that gives you the background information you need to freedive safely and allows you to learn at your own pace. We will check on your progress and make sure you understand important freediving information.
In the PADI Freediver course, you learn to use a low-volume mask, snorkel and fins and may also use a wetsuit and elastic weight belt. In this course we have long binfins available for students but is definitely ok to use normal snorkling or scuba diving fins.
