PADI FREE DIVER Welcome to the world of apnea

The PADI Free Diver Course with DIVEWORLD  

Course Cost £300 - Upgrade from basic freediver £175.

Who should take this course?

Freediving is about inner 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. We will train you in the pool, then out to open water where the real action is!

To enroll in our PADI Freediver course you must be at least 16 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.

Younger than 15?  Eight year olds and older can enroll in the PADI Skin Diver course.

Why choose Diveworld ?

Diveworld has always believed in providing the best in diver training.  We believe in offering the best person for the job rather than an instructor who has simply passed a qualification and capable of delivering the bare minimum. Freediving training is overseen by Laura, an expert freediver and mermaid trainer.

Our alliegance was instrumental in developing the Aquatic Mermaids group at our Sheffield training facility, you will find the mermaids at most of the Diveworld Club nights.

What will you learn?

The PADI Freediver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge development about freediving principles through independent study with the PADI Freediver Touch™
  • Confined water session to learn breathhold techniques as well as static and dynamic apnea. Goal – static apnea of 90 seconds and dynamic apnea of 25 metres/80 feet.
  • Open water sessions to practice free immersion and constant weight freedives, plus proper buddy procedures. Goal – constant weight freedive of 10 metres/30 feet.

How can you start learning now?

Contact Diveworld and order the PADI Freediver Touch tablet app. The Touch is an interactive study tool that gives you the background information you need to freedive safely and allows you to learn at your own pace. Your PADI Freediver Instructor will check on your progress and make sure you understand important freediving information.

Good news – the PADI Freediver Touch also includes all learning materials for the PADI Advanced Freediver and Master Freediver courses.

What freediving gear will you use?

In the PADI Freediver course, you learn to use a mask, snorkel and fins, and may also use a wetsuit and weight belt. Using gear designed specifically for freediving is best, however, in this course, you may be able to use snorkeling equipment you already own.

Check with us about the gear you will use during this course and get advice about everything you need from your PADI Freediver Instructor.
