FREEDIVING FOR BEGINNERS TO ADVANCED
No matter what your background in diving is, the AIDA one freediver course will open your mind to a whole new underwater experience. In this course you can discover freediving at your own pace as a beginner or advancing your current freediving skills.
The Freediver AIDA two course is designed for students who are already confident in the water. Thorough theory and knowledge development covers the fundamentals of physiology, relaxation, breathing, equalisation, technique, safety procedures, buddying and and introduces you to 4 disciplines, Static, Dynamic, FIM, and CW.
The advanced AIDA three course is taught over three days, and goes into the theory of Freediving in more depth which will allow you to understand the physiology and techniques behind diving deeper. The course will help you improve your Freediving performance whilst advancing your safety and rescue skills.
2 ½ DAY COURSE
The Freediver & Advanced Freediver Course Combo combines the first two freediving courses, with a total length of 6 - 7 days, providing the perfect opportunity for students who want to start and immediately get into deeper freediving.
If you a certified freediver (at least level 1) wishing to advance your current skills, brush up on safety, improve your technique, we can create personalised training sessions that will be tailored to your current skill level and what you want to achieve.
Dolphin Divers aims to give children the ability to build water confidence and expand freediving skills and techniques. Our goal is to help children discover their inner dolphin and learn valuable water skills, in a safe and fun manner.
Freediving is not about your physical ability, but about your mental skills and mental training. You need to let go of everything that you know and embrace the sensations. You are in complete control. Listen to what your body is telling you and act with calmness and ease. It's a very liberating experience and one of the best feelings on Earth.

"Freediving is a way of life. There are so many different reasons why some of us want to explore the big blue. Whether it's because you want to increase fitness, be at one with the ocean, master your body, to manage stress, feel accomplished or blend in with our marine life. Some of us freedive to experience the ultimate feeling of freedom, find peace and tranquility and to observe our coastal ecosystems more closely. Whatever it may be, I promise you, when you get here, you too will want to protect what you love and begin living for our ocean."
