Advanced Freediver

The Advanced Freediver Course is designed to take students to a whole new level of freediving.

By the completion of this course students will be surprised to achieve depths of over 30 metres on one breath alone. The most advanced breathing techniques together with our specific preparation for deep dives will make this possible even if you have just started in the sport.

The Advanced Freediver Course runs for 3 days and is divided into 3 theory / breathing sessions, 1 pool session and 2 deep water sessions.
This includes static apnea with breath-holds of over 3 minutes in the water. Even if you think that this is impossible, together with your Instructor you will discover with success your true aquatic potential.
During our deep diving water sessions you will progressively achieve new depths with knowledge, control, comfort and fun. I 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, you will receive a certification as well as private online access to the Advanced Freediver Course materials, so that you can maintain your freediving knowledge.

This course will be private, no other student will be present. If you do wish to bring along one or two friends, a discount of € 25 will be given to any additional student.
