What is Freediving?

Have you ever dreamed of passively exploring the underwater world free from equipment? Freediving is the most natural and serene way to explore the depths of the oceans with minimal impact. It is also the ultimate way to free yourself and spend more time enjoying the beauty and silence of the sea. Anyone who has held their breath underwater has received. However, freediving is not simply about seeing how long you can hold your breath or how deep you can go in a single breath. You have to create the right attitude and pay attention to the limits of your body and mind. The true appeal of freediving is in the silence and calm it brings to people’s hectic lives.

Reconnect With Nature

Freedivers silently blend into the underwater environment. They enjoy magical encounters with shy marine life and hear all the sounds of the ocean: fish munching on coral, the tide pulsing at the rocks, and even the calls of dolphins and whales!

Freediving is the perfect way to reconnect to the sea and explore the depths of the oceans with minimal impact. Some people freedive for the personal challenge, but for many, the true appeal of freediving is in the silence and calm it brings to their hectic lives.

I Need a Freediving Course?

Though freediving appears to be relatively simple, there is a lot to know about safety and physiology. A non-trained freediver risks ear, sinus, and lung injuries, blackouts, and could potentially drown. An experienced, insured freediving instructor can help you advance your skills and avoid serious risks. If you already have some freediving experience, the expert techniques taught by PADI Freediving instructors can help you quickly increase depth and time underwater but also enhance your personal and buddy-related safety skills.

Freediving as a sport

Freediving is an international competitive sport as well as the perfect way to relax at the weekend. Professional freedivers exploit the bodies’ diving adaptations to go to depths of over 200m in a single breath. These diving reflexes help conserve oxygen by restricting the blood flow to your extremities, conserving it for your vital organs. Since 1992 AIDA has been organising freediving competitions worldwide, making the sport safer but as competitive as ever. Freediving competitions also bring the community of freedivers together where they can share their knowledge and experience with other like-minded people. We hope you will join us!
