Achieving a new freediving time or reaching a new depth is an incredible feeling. It satisfies that very personal desire to do your best and be proud of what you can accomplish. The PADI Advanced Freediver course is designed to fulfill that personal need to refine and improve your freediving skills, allowing you to progress slowly while learning how your body performs during apnea.

Course Goals​​
  • Conduct confined water static apnea for 2 minutes 30 seconds (2 minutes for under 18's)

  • Conduct confined water dynamic apnea for 50 metres (40 metres for under 18's)

  • Conduct Open Water constant weight freedive to 20 metres (15 metres for under 18's)

Course Prerequisites​
  • You must be certified as a PADI Freediver (or have a qualifying certification from another freediving organisation)

  • You must have successfully completed a sanctioned first aid course including CPR training within the past 2 years. The PADI Emergency First Response (EFR)  program is highly recommended and meets this requirement.

  • You must be comfortable in water and possess a basic level of swimming ability. During the program you will need to complete a 200 Metre continuous unaided swim or a 300 Metre swim with mask, fins & snorkel 

  • Good physical health. You must complete the PADI Freediver Medical Statement prior to the program start date. Any pre-existing medical conditions highlighted on this form will require medical clearance before any in-water training can take place.
