Basic Freediver


Get ready to start exploring in this one day introductory programme,


Service Description

If you want to get exploring the ocean as soon as possible this is the programme for you. The SSI Basic Freediver program is a more in-depth introduction to the sport. Whether you are new to the sport, or if you already enjoy your snorkelling then this course will take it to the next level. It will provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to plan, execute and enjoy freediving with your buddy to depths of 5 metres. The one-day program is perfect for those wishing to learn the concepts and to be more relaxed in the water. Enjoy exploring, photography and adventure to depths of 5m on certification. You will take part in academic workshops including equipment selection, use and maintenance, and a mini breathing workshop. You will transfer these skills into the real world with a pool and then open water session to fully prepare you for exploring in comfort and safety. Our beach at Selsey Lifeboat Station offers a perfect spot for training. Part of the Selsey Bill and Hounds Marine Conservation zone there is plenty of opportunity to discover the marine life whilst mastering your skills. Is there a minimum age? You need to be at least 10 and confident in water. Do I need to have equipment? Only a mask and snorkel we will provide everything else you need. You are welcome to use your equipment if you have it, just ask if you are not sure about its suitability. I have never snorkelled before, is this the right course for me? If you are water confident and comfortable in the sea then you can begin here, but if you want an introduction to see if you will like the sport we recommend a Try Freediving Experience. What can I do once I have completed the programme? Explore, have fun, join us on Open Water workshops, trips and tours or upgrade to take your freediving further. What is included? Digital Manual Academic workshops Practical breathing class Confined water/pool session Open Water Session Online certification card on completion Equipment hire (you will need a mask and snorkel set**) Instructor time By taking part you help us do more, thank you.
