The PADI Basic Freediver course consists of two main phases:

  • Knowledge development through independent study with the PADI Freediver Touch™ (or your instructor may conduct class sessions if not available in a language you understand).

  • Confined water session to learn breathhold techniques as well as static and dynamic apnea, plus proper buddy procedures. Goal – static apnea of 90 seconds and dynamic apnea of 25 metres/80 feet.

In the PADI Basic Freediver course, you learn to use a mask, snorkel and fins, and may also use a wetsuit and weight belt.
