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.
