The Advanced Freediver Course is designed to take students to a far deeper level of this sport.
Upon completion of this course, many students will achieve depths greater than 30 meters on a single breath.
Our specialized advanced breathing techniques, together with our progressive preparation for deep dives, can make this possible even for newcomers to freediving.
The Advanced Freediver Course runs for 3 days and is divided into 3 academic/breathing sessions, 1 pool session, and 2 deep water aquatic sessions. This includes static apnea with breath-holds of over 3 minutes in the water. Even if you think that this feat is impossible, our Instructors will reveal with success your true aquatic potential. During our deep diving water sessions you will progressively achieve new depths with knowledge, control, comfort, and fun. The highly-experienced Apnea Total Instructors will be by your side at all times while underwater and will guide you with precise instructions for breathing, relaxation, and techniques necessary to achieve these depths.
Upon completion of the Advanced Freediver Course, students will receive certification as well as private online access to the Advanced Freediver Course materials, so that you can maintain your freediving knowledge.
