Learn to Free Dive!
We were very excited to be bringing another element to our scuba dive centre stores for people to learn, practice and excel at!
In free diving otherwise known as apnea diving, the diver takes a deep breath before descending into the water and does not breathe at all while submerged. The length of the dive is determined by physical activity, the cooling of the body, an increase of pressure and the person’s lung capacity.
Free diving is yet another amazing underwater sport as it is something you can do anywhere in the world as long as there is a lake, river, pool or ocean nearby! It is a sport that requires practice and determination, you find so much out about what your psychological limits are and work past them to find out what you are really capable of! You can compete with your friends, apply your apnea skills to spear fishing or maybe you just want to feel the relaxing, liberating and unique experience that free diving has to offer.
In the course we will help you find the confidence and ability to go to 20m. We go through the equipment used, what happens to your body, how to breathe up correctly, how to duck dive in a way that doesn’t waste energy and the art of being stream line, the hazards of free diving and how to avoid or respond to these hazards. Safety and proper technique is very important but through practice whilst under the supervision of an instructor, you can learn what you can do.
Our course runs for two days, one day of theory and pool work then another day out in the ocean. It is $295.00 or $345.00 including gear hire and if you really liked your equipment on the course we will sell it to you at a discounted price.
If you are keen to push yourself to a new level please give us a call on 02 4296 4266 or simply send us an email, there are limited spots so please get in quick!
