AIDA Freediver Course

AIDA Certification Course - 2 days - US$350

The goal of the AIDA Freediver Course is to allow you to gain a good understanding of freediving. From the duck dive, over finning technique to equalisation – you will learn all basic skills, step by step. Many freediving novices are concerned about numbers, such as minutes of breath hold or depth of a dive in order to become a certified freediver. In fact, the numbers show that you have mastered the basic skills and thus meters and seconds are not the primary concern.
