Advanced Freediver

Advanced Freediver

Intermediate Freediving Certification Course at Bonaire Freediving School

Designed to refine and improve your freediving skills, allowing you to progress slowly while learning how your body performs during apnea (suspension of breathing).

Description

Achieving a new freediving time or reaching a new depth is an incredible feeling. It satisfies that very personal desire to do your best and be proud of what you can accomplish. The PADI Advanced Freediver course is designed to fulfill that personal need to refine and improve your freediving skills, allowing you to progress slowly while learning how your body performs during apnea.

To enroll in a PADI Advanced Freediver course you must be at least 15 years old and have a PADI Freediver certification (or a qualifying certification from another freediver organization).

Academic

The PADI Advanced Freediver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge development about advanced freediving techniques and equipment. You’ll study independently using the PADI Freediver Touch (or your instructor may conduct class sessions if not available in a language you understand).
  • Confined water session to learn stretching and relaxation techniques as well as refine static and dynamic apnea. Goal – static apnea of 2 minutes, 30 seconds (2 minutes for freedivers younger than 18) and dynamic apnea of 50 metres/165 feet (40 metres/130 feet for freedivers younger than 18)
  • Open water sessions to practice deeper free immersion and constant weight freedives, along with additional buddy procedures and rescue techniques. Goal – constant weight freedive of 20 meters/65 feet (15 metres/50 feet for freedivers younger than 18)

Equipment

You need to have a freediving mask, snorkel, bifins, wetsuit and weight belt. Your instructor may allow you to use monofins. You’ll also need a freediving computer (or depth gauge and timer).

Check with us about the gear you’ll use during this course and get advice about what you need.

Getting Started at Bonaire Freediving School you might already have the PADI Freediver Touch tablet app, simply get started on the Advanced Freediver section. If not, let us know to get you the interactive Touch (not included in the price). You can review basic freediving information in the first section, then start studying for your advanced training.

Note that the PADI Freediver Touch also includes all study materials for the Master Freediver course.
