Freediving Level 1 SSI

FREEDIVING LEVEL 1

FREEDIVER COURSE

What will you learn?

SSI Freediver course provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to safely participate in the recreational freediving activities autonomously with a buddy.

It consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge development about fundamental freediving principles.
  • Confined water sessions to learn breath hold techniques as well as static and dynamic apnea. 
  • Open water sessions to practice free immersion and constant weight freedives, as well as proper buddy procedures and rescue techniques.

Goal of the course is to try static apnea, achieve dynamic apnea of 30 meters and constant weight freedive to 10-20 meters.

Course materials

Upon course registration we will send you course materials in a digital format.

Equipment included

During the course, you will get all the equipment needed for your course.

Certification card

After successful course completion you will receive a digital certification card.

Diving insurance

The divesite is located less than 10min drive with our RIB from the centre. Our facilities offer warm showers, changing room & lockers, so we can arrive to the divesite prepared and ready to jump in the water.
