Intro: PADI Basic Freediver Course in Koh Tao

Are you curious about freediving?
Don’t have the time or are a little unsure about committing to the full PADI Freediver course?
Then why not experience the PADI Basic Freediver programme. It’s a great introduction to understanding and practising some of the core freediving skills.
It’s a one-day experience, so you get to scratch the surface of freediving knowledge, plus you’ll also get to experience some essential freediving skills such as static and dynamic apnea.

PADI Basic Freediver Course Requirements:

  1. Demonstrate the ability to swim continuously on the surface 200 meters/yards without swim aids, or 300 meters/yards using mask, fins and snorkel.
  2. Complete knowledge development segment, including Knowledge Review, Freediver Exam and Freediver Quick Review.
  3. Complete Freediver Confined Water Session. Make one static apnea attempt of at least 90 seconds and one dynamic apnea must be at least 25 meters/80 feet.

Basic Freediver course schedule:

0800-1000

Meet your instructor to complete all paperwork and a short orientation. You will then head to the classroom for an academic presentation explaining the important aspects of freediving, including correct breathing techniques, the relationship between pressure and gas volume, proper safety protocol, aquatic life, equalisation techniques and more.

1100-1300

Meet your instructor again after a lunch break. From here we will head down to the swimming pool. During this session all skills will be performed in the swimming pool against the backdrop of the ocean.
Our beachfront resort has a custom-built swimming pool ideal for our freediving training and underwater skills.

Once all segments of the PADI Basic Freediver programme and performance requirements have been completed, a diver earns certification (Positive Identification Card – PIC) at Basic Freediver level by demonstrating mastery of all knowledge development and skill development performance requirements. You will be certified as a PADI Basic Freediver.
