Course: Freediving Beginner Level

We are training our students according to the Apnea Total education system. All our courses take place in the breath-taking Cenotes of the Riviera Maya, where we encounter perfect conditions all year round.

Apnea Total Freediver

The Freediver Course is designed for those with little or no experience under water as well as for those with more experience who haven't had formal education in freediving (e.g. spearfishers).

In this course you will get to know your underwater potential and gain confidence to safely & comfortably freedive to depths of up to 21 meters / 70 feet. Our expert guidance combined with the unique Apnea Total breathing techniques packed in a very effective course structure, create an educative but fun environment and a successful freediving experience.

 

The Freediver Course is divided into two classroom lessons and two water sessions*. During the classroom sessions our instructors interact with you using various presentation methods, quizzes and different exercises to build up your understanding, knowledge and techniques prior to the water session. During our water sessions we have a maximum student-teacher ratio of 3 to 1; allowing for greater personalized attention. Under water our instructors are with you at all times regardless of depth, thus increasing your safety as well as your confidence.

 

Upon completion of the Freediver Course, you will receive your hard-earned certification as well as exclusive lifelong online access to our course materials.

 

If you fall in love with freediving and have 3 more days for learning you can continue with the Advanced Freediver Course right afterwards.
