Descriptions

[vc_row padding_top=”10″ padding_bottom=”0″][vc_column][vc_column_text]PADI Freediver course is your first step in the amazing underwater world, without excessive equipment and noise

We conduct our PADI Freediver course over two days. The PADI Freediver course consists of

  • Knowledge development
  • 2 Confined water sessions in the shallow water at the sandy area of our house reef
  • 2 Open water sessions – two training session conducted from our freediving boat

Knowledge Development

The Knowledge Development section of PADI Freediver course consists of independent learning using PADI Elearning portal, which covers equipment for freediving, breathing techniques, physiology (respiration, circulation, mammalian dive reflex), effects of pressure underwater, equalization, safety, etc.
Subsequently, upon arriving at Tioman, you will have additional knowledge review session with the instructor, in the course of which several important topics, such as breathing and equalization, will be reviewed in greater detail.

Confined water dives

All our confined water dives are conducted in the shallow water along a lengthy patch of sandy bottom of our house reef, located in the shielded bay. The pool like conditions of the confined water area will provide a comfortable and safe environment for the skills development, while being in the sea will better prepare you for the open water training sessions.

Your instructor will demonstrate the following freediving skills which you will then practice in the confined water under his supervision:

  • the correct way to put on and remove freediving equipment
  • warm up and correct breathing techniques prior to a static apnea attempt/dynamic apnea swim
  • correct technique for completing a static apnea attempt/dynamic apnea swim
  • correct buddy skills for supporting a free diver during a static apnea attempt/dynamic apnea swim
  • rescue for a diver who simulates loss of motor control at the surface/blackout underwater

Open Water Training Dives

During the open water sessions you will be able to put everything you have learned in theory into practice!

On the first dive, with a maximum depth limit of 10 meters/30 feet, you will practice correct breathing techniques for open water free dive, perform a free dive to a maximum depth of 10 meters, and demonstrate a rescue for a buddy who simulates loss of motor control on the surface.

On the second freediving session, you will practice constant weight diving techniques for the maximum depth of 16 meters/50 feet, learn how to do safety for your buddy, and perform a rescue of a freediver who simulates blackout at 5 meters/15 feet.

Congratulations, you are now fully qualified PADI Freediver, certified to freedive to a maximum depth of 16 meters with a buddy worldwide!

If your schedule allows, we recommend staying a little longer and doing at least one optional fun dive, during which you can not only explore the wonders of the underwater world of Tioman and meet the local fishes but also apply the skills you learned during the training dives in the new setting of freediving for fun![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
