PADI, the well known Scuba institution, now offers 3 different Freediving Courses to become a good and safe Freediver; SpearfishingToday offers each Course in Mexico: Cozumel, Playa del Carmen and in Cancun. When you always wanted to learn how to Freedive, then there no more excuses. Beginning with the PADI Freediver certification, you will gain the training and discipline needed to stay safe during breath hold dives. Afterwards, you can continue your education and progress to new depths with the PADI Advanced Freediver Course and Master Freediver Course.
3 things that really make the PADI Freediving courses stand out.
First, there is the goal of the PADI Freediver course. The entry courses of for example FII is static apnea (breath holding in a pool) of 3 minutes. And freediving to a depth of 66ft. PADI takes it easier with its Freediver course. Static apnea of 1.30 min and reaching a depth of 33ft. So for people that would like to go step by step this is a great option.
Second, PADI added a discipline that you will not easily find easy in other recreational Freediving Course: Dynamic Apnea. This simply means swimming a certain distance (so no depth) in a pool while holding your breath.
Third, PADI uses an impressive application called PADI Freediver Touch; an interactive study tool that gives you the background information you need to freedive safely and allows you to learn at your own pace. Your PADI Freediver Instructor will check on progress and make sure you understand important freediving information.
