AIDA LEVEL 4

PERFORMANCE FREEDIVER COURSE

What will you learn?

The AIDA Level 4 Performance Freediver Course is a specialised course for deep diving designed to provide you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to take you into the deep blue. You will be introduced to the needed techniques, knowledge and safety procedures for deep freediving such as Mouthfill equalisation technique, lung stretching, packing and much more!

It consists of four main phases:

  • Knowledge development about nutrition, relaxation, advanced freediving skills and techniques, including mouthfill equalization, needed for deep diving.
  • Full body stretching, lung stretching including packing and reverse packing.
  • Confined water sessions to improve static and dynamic apnea results.
  • Open water sessions to practice mouthfill equalization and perform deeper free immersion and constant weight disciplines.

By the end of the course you will be able to perform a 3 minutes 30 seconds breath-hold, swim 70 meters underwater with fins and dive comfortably between 32 and 38 meters depth.
