Who is it for?

This second level course is for holders of Level 1 Certifications; SSI Level 1/ PADI Advanced Freediver/ AIDA 2 star. You need at least 6 logged dive sessions before you begin, we recommend that you are comfortable diving in the 15- 20m range to get the most from this course. You can always take some coached diving before hand if its been a while since you last free dived to depth.


This advanced Freediving course will equip you with further knowledge of the mammalian diving reflex and how to initiate the best response for Freediving.

You will learn new advanced equalisation techniques, free fall- which is where the magic happens!  Also apnea training methods to carry you past 60 ft. (20 meters) and develop the skills necessary to freedive to depths of up to 90 ft. (30 meters.)

You will receive a certification from SSI.
