The PADI Basic Freediver course is a subset of the PADI Freediver course. It’s a great first step for developing solid freediving skills. You learn basic freediving principles and focus on practicing breathhold techniques in a pool or confined water site here in Tenerife.
To enroll in our PADI Basic Freediver course you must be 12 years old or older. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with snorkeling, skin diving or freediving is required.
The PADI Basic Freediver course consists of two main phases:
Knowledge development through independent study with the PADI Freediver eLearning.
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
In the PADI Basic Freediver course, you learn to use a mask, snorkel and fins, and may also use a wetsuit and weight belt. At our Freediving centre here in Tenerife we have a range of gear designed specifically for freediving, however, you can use snorkeling equipment if you already own it.
