Course Description:

This course is a thorough, three-day intensive study of the basic practice of breath-hold diving or freediving for the committed freediver. This includes instruction in freediving equipment, free-diving techniques and line diving, apnea training and breath theory, pressure equalization, mammalian diving reflex, freediver safety and rescue techniques and more. 


This course is conducted in the sea and will include instruction on how to engage wildlife encounters, fish identification and communication and other information from experienced freeswimmers that will help you apply your newly acquired freediving skill to underwater photography and other sea adventures.

This course is three days long. Each course day is about three hours of lecture and one to two hours of freediving training.

Private Freediving Instruction:

All Everblue Freediving courses are taught as private lessons, one teacher per student, unless students specifically request to train with a partner. It is our belief that each student deserves the undivided attention of their instructor, you learn more, better, and its safer.


If you wish to learn to freedive with a partner or group, please ask.
