Try Freediving

Discover your inner marine mammal with this introduction to Freediving

Service Description

Do you wonder what Freediving feels like? Are you looking for a new way to improve your fitness? Then the SSI Try Freediving Programme is the place to start. Freediving allows you to get closer to the marine life and stay longer than snorkelling and without the weight of Scuba equipment. It does not have to be all about depth but comfort, relaxation and ocean exploration. This experience will introduce to you the skills and concepts that recreational Freedivers use and let you experience the different disciplines of static and dynamic apnea. You will start with a pool side breathing and safety workshop with your instructor to help prepare you for the best experience in the water. You will discover how to use the bi-fins to aid your movement as you glide beneath the surface, relax as you try your first static breath hold all under the guidance of your SSI Freediving Instructor in comfort and safety. Is there a minimum age? You need be at least 10 and comfortable in the water. Do I need to have worn fins and masks before? No, we will take you from the beginning it is a full introduction. I have been snorkelling for some time, do I need to do this taster? If you are an experienced snorkeller then you may get more from the BASIC Freediver Programme which will take you below the surface and includes ocean time. I do not have any equipment is it provided? We can provide you with all the equipment you need for this experience but highly recommend that you invest in your own mask. We offer a full fitting service and have a wide range to choose from. Fittings can be arranged prior to your experience. What is included? Digital Manual Breathing workshop poolside Confined water/pool session Digital recognition card on completion Equipment hire – we recommend your own mask Instructor time Every time you take part you help us do more, thank you
