Intro to Freediving

This is a 1-day class, the equivalent of a discovery dive. You will experience breathhold on land and in the water, as well as an open water session where you can go maximum 10m deep.

We will run a 2 hour theory session prior to the water session that covers all basic aspects of breathing, safety and techniques.

This is the very first step in the AIDA certification system, and no requirements need to be reached. 

The course is suitable for those with limited time or water experience; AIDA 1 is not a full beginner course, but you can continue with a discounted AIDA 2 course with us.
