If you’re an advanced freediver who wants to learn how to fine-tune your lifestyle and training so that you can approach elite freediving levels, then the PADI Master Freediver course is for you. Through focused sessions, you’ll bring your static apnea, dynamic apnea, free immersion and constant weight skills to the next level.
To enroll in a PADI Master Freediver course you must be at least 18 years old and have a PADI Advanced Freediver certification (or a qualifying certification from another freediver organization).
The PADI Master Freediver course consists of three main phases:
- Knowledge development about nutrition, relaxation and advanced breathing techniques. You’ll study independently using the PADI Freediver Touch™ (an interactive study tool that gives you the background information you need to freedive safely).
- Confined water session to improve static and dynamic apnea attempts, including a no fins dynamic apnea. Goal – static apnea of 3 minutes, 30 seconds and dynamic apnea of 70 meters/230 feet.
- Open water sessions to practice equalization and perform warm-up and workup dives for free immersion and constant weight freediving. Goal – constant weight freedive of 27 meters/90 feet.
You will use a mask, snorkel, fins, wetsuit and weight belt. All the equipment is supplied by the dive center.
