AIDA Freediver

This course is the foundation freediving course, further extending your knowledge and proper breathing techniques for freediving.

During this course you will be adequate to comfortably freedive in depths between 16-20 metres, holding your breath for up to 2 minutes.

It’s perfect for non-competitive recreational freediving and for those who are confident in the water. Static and dynamic sessions in confined water are incorporated to teach all important freediving theories and techniques, that are later going to be applied in the open water.
