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. You will learn the basic theory of Freediving and how to prepare yourself for a breath-hold dive. Students are guided during an open ocean session to swim to depth (maximum 10m), focusing on correct 'duckdive', equalisation, relaxation techniques, safety and buddying.
