Advanced Freediver Course

(Apnea Total)

This course is not available currently

3 Days = 1.200 RM   

Extended version: 4 Days = 1.400 RM

Our advanced course is somewhat unique in the freediving world as we won't simply allow you to go a little deeper than in your freediver course. We will do exhale diving, which is a training tool and should not be performed without proper instructions and supervision to make sure you do it safely. It sounds irrational first but is widely used throughout the animal kingdom and freedivers can use it for more efficiency too.

This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills to unlock your freediving potential on a higher level.

You will learn how to dive deeper and stay longer using advanced breathing and relaxation techniques.

The maximum depth is 30 meters.

Included in the course fee:

* Equipment: freediving masks + snorkels, suits, long fins, weight belts, etc.

* Certification from Apnea Total

* private online access to the Advanced Freediver Course materials


* Apnea Total Freediver Certification, or equivalent certification level from another freediving organisation 

Extended Version:

(Including one exta day of coaching)

We recommend you to arrive at least one day earlier and take the chance to do one coaching session before starting the course specially if you haven't dived in a while. You want to make sure you are ready for these truly advanced days of freediving and you will get the most out of it. We can assess your skills, practice technique and maybe repeat a simulated rescue.

This extra day is mandatory for students who want to cross over to Apnea Total from other freediving organisations.
