Introducing Deep Sensations Freediving's Discover Freediving Experience, where you can dip your toes into the exhilarating world of freediving without committing to a full course. Designed for those short on time or curious about freediving, this immersive introduction offers a taste of the adventure that lies beneath the waves.

Discover Freediving Wave Experience: Explore the open waters with our Wave Experience. Experience the serenity of open water freediving as you learn essential skills such as equalization, entry techniques, and underwater navigation with bifins.

Key Learning Points:

Basic Freediving Technique: Dive into the basics of freediving, including equipment knowledge, safety protocols, and finning techniques to enhance your underwater experience.

Pool or Open Water Freediving Techniques: Depending on your chosen experience, you'll learn specific skills tailored to either pool or open water freediving:

  • Pool Freediving: Learn how to begin your pool dive, efficiently navigate with bifins, and execute a perfect pool turn to enhance your performance.

  • Open Water Freediving: Master the art of equalizing your ears at depth, execute a flawless 'duck dive' entry, and dive confidently to depth using bifins.

Please Note:

The Discover Freediving Experience is not a certification course, and participants will not be qualified to dive with other freedivers upon completion. However, if you find yourself captivated by the world of freediving during your introduction, fear not! Your Discover Freediving in-water session can count toward one of the sessions in our Lap/Wave 1 - Beginner Freediving course, allowing you to seamlessly transition into further exploration of this captivating sport.
