    Freediving is about inward power, discipline and control. If you’ve always wanted to enter the underwater world quietly, on your own terms, staying as long as your breath allows, then freediving is for you. Taking the PADI Freediver course is your first step toward discovering why freediving is becoming a popular way to explore beneath the waves.

    To enroll in a PADI Freediver Course you must be at least 15 years old. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with snorkeling, skin diving or freediving is required.

    We do recommended coming into the shop prior to your pool session to get fitted for a mask, snorkel and fins to take into the ocean to get familiar with equipment to get the most out of the course.
