Freediving is all about inner power, discipline and control. If you’ve always wanted to quietly enter the underwater world on your own terms, and stay as long as your breath allows, then freediving is for you. Taking the Freediver course is your first step toward discovering why freediving is becoming such a popular way to explore beneath the waves.

The Freediver Course introduces students to static, dynamic and constant weight freediving knowledge and skills. The course is intended for keen freedivers, rather than a casual snorkeler or skin diver, so emphasizes the specialized breathing techniques, equipment, procedures and safety issues associated with freediving.

You’ll complete independent knowledge development about freediving principles with the Freediver Touch before learning breath-hold techniques as well as static and dynamic apnea in a confined water session. In these sessions, you’ll aim to achieve static apnea of 90 seconds and dynamic apnea of 25m (80 feet). This will be followed by open water sessions where you’ll practice free immersion and constant weight freedives as well as proper buddy procedures. In the open water sessions, you’ll be aiming for a constant weight freedive of 10m (30 feet).

You must be at least 12 years old to enrol in the Basic Freediver Course (which does not include the open water dive sessions) and 15 years old for the Freediver Course. You’ll also need to be in good physical health and have adequate swimming skills. No previous freediving experience is required.


Static Apnea – 1min 30secs

Dynamic Apnea – 25 meters

Constant Weight Dive – 10 meters


To help divers prepare for the new reality of diving during COVID-19 at Peri-Peri Divers. Our Mozambican Government, SSI and the Divers Alert Network (DAN) recently issued advice to dive operators on how to safely resume operations.

While this guidance gives divers an inkling of what they can expect when returning to our dive shop the risk cannot be entirely eliminated when interacting with other people.

Below we will list what we at Peri-Peri Divers are implementing to Safeguard as best we can our staff, friends and family divers from this unprecedented pandemic.

  • Firstly, all staff members have been trained in both SSI & DAN International COVID preventative methods
  • We have made available cleaning stations with sanitizer on the 2 x entry points to the dive shop, around the centre and in the bathrooms·
  • Temperatures will be taken on entry
  • All entrants will be required to sign in and out of the diving shop, allowing us to trace should the unthinkable arise.
  • Each guest will be given their own regulator where needed to use for the duration of your stay. We have disinfectant in all dip tanks for cleaning after each dive/use.
  • There will be special markers on the floor 1.5m apart for kiting up and de-kitting.
  • We will have a 1 person in, one person out rule for the toilet and hot showers
  • There will be a reduced capacity on all dive / snorkelling excursions with a maximum of 8 total divers / snorkellers
  • Masks / buffers to be worn at all times once outside of the dive shop, launching, beaching and in the boat.
  • Water and light snacks will be available on all boats, but it is recommended you bring your own.

What we ask of you…

  • Please make use of all the sanitizing stations as much as makes you feel comfortable
  • Please be respectful of distancing rules whether that be at sea or in the shop and that each person has their own principles and ideals
  • Can we suggest you bring a diving pouch containing a mask, or facial buffer (also helps with the sun), water bottle (keeping with you at all times), gloves, lock for your locker (we do have @ 100MZN), probably most importantly a pen, sunblock, sunglasses and hat.
  • Stay distant at the surface or in the boat and visually buddy check your dive partners equipment
  • Try to kit up solo, again, both in the shop and out at sea.
  • Breath through regulators in close proximity at the surface before entering the dive boat
  • Watch where you are pointing the snorkel
  • Try to smear defog not saliva when cleaning your mask lens

Above all else, don’t forget to smile.

Our promise to you…

  • To constantly as best we can, disinfect and clean all spaces and equipment.
  • All staff will be temperature checked and be required to clean hands as much as possible
  • We will provide hand sanitizer to guests with a minimum of 60% alcohol
  • We will make your safety our priority and if there is something that has been overlooked or makes you uncomfortable please say and we will do all we can to rectify.

We are living in extreme times and an ever changing world so it’s important to understand what we got into diving for in the first place and know that it may be a difficult transition to begin with but we will get over this as long as we can adhere to the rule changes and be respectful to individuals and the business needs alike.. so enjoy you time with us and hopefully the diving will blow your mind!
