PADI Freediver

Learn how to become a PADI freediver on koh tao. Freediving is a compelling and transformational experience that provides a one-of-a-kind and intimate connection with the underwater world.

Freediving, also known as breath-hold diving or apnea diving, is a water sport in which participants explore underwater depths without using breathing apparatus such as scuba tanks. Instead, freedivers explore the undersea world by holding their breath for extended periods of time. The sport has a long history and is used for a variety of reasons, including recreation and competitive sports.

PADI free diving consist of three sections:

Knowledge development: During this session, you will receive a PADI Freediver e-learning that will help you obtain more understanding about freediving theory with all of this topic (The Physics of freediving, The Physiology of freediving, Freediving equipment, Freediving skills, The  Open water environment, Aquatic life, Safe freediving practice) before we go to the confine water session, and you must complete the knowledge review questions and quick review questions in all sections (Learning on your own) and you will do the final exam with your instructor.

Confine water: In a controlled environment, such as a pool, students learn freediving techniques. This includes equipment setup and donning, static and dynamic apnea, rescuing a diver with LMC, rescuing a diver faking blackout underwater, general open water freediving skills, and a 200-metre swim without swim aids or a 300-metre swim with mask, fin, and snorkel.

Open water: The PADI Freediver Open Water Sessions take confined water freediving skills to constant weight open water freediving in a competitive setting. Safety lanyards, equipment donning and entrance, free immersion (draw down) and weighting, constant weight freediving, rescue practice, and optional recreational freediving are all part of the training. The maximum depth for Open Water Session One is 10 metres and the maximum depth for Open Water session Two is 16 metres.
