Who should do this course?
Anyone with an interest in diving and exploring the underwater world in a more natural and exciting way should learn the basics of freediving. On this course you will learn to safely enjoy the rapture of breath-hold diving.
Freediving is directed inwards instead of outwards. You learn to explore how your body reacts to being underwater on a breath hold. No tanks, just you and the ocean. Taking the PADI Freediver course is your first step toward discovering why freediving is becoming more and more popular worldwide and is first choice among adventurous and physically fit people around the globe.
What’s on the program?
1. The Padi Freediver course consists of three main phaes:

3. Open water sessions to practice free immersion and constant weight freedives, plus proper buddy procedures. Goal: constant weight freedive of 10 metres/30 feet.
Contact Seaquest Bohol Dive Center and get 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. We will check on your progress and make sure you understand important freediving information.
In the PADI Freediver course, you learn to use a low-volume mask, snorkel and fins and may also use a wetsuit and elastic weight belt. In this course we have long binfins available for students but is definitely ok to use normal snorkling or scuba diving fins.
