FAQ

I am already a certified scuba diver, can I skip to Level 2 in the freediving course?

Apart from the body's response to underwater pressure, scuba diving and free diving are basically completely different sports. Free diving is to use the oxygen in your body to dive to a water depth without the aid of a gas cylinder and buoyancy compensator. Scuba divers will not be particularly good at free diving when two diving sports are significantly different from equipment, physiology to even fin kicking technique.

Do I need to know how to swim in order to enroll into your freediving courses?

 

​Yes! Each student must be able to swim 300 meters without equipment and assistance. Learn and practice if you cannot achieve this right now. Learning swimming is worth your time and effort!

 

​I can only hold my breath for 30 seconds, can I learn free diving?

Our course will teach students how to hold their breath longer and consume less oxygen during diving. Don't worry! We humans are not used to holding our breath, because we all live on land! But with the right skills and practice, we will be able to stay underwater longer and longer.
