PADI Advanced Freediver (Level 2)

Go deeper, Stay longer

Three days (20-30m) $300

The PADI advanced freediver course builds on the basics. Skills such as “freefall” are introduced to allow easier, longer and deeper dives. You will practice oxygen conservation through correct technique and appropriate energy output. Students demonstrate ability to provide reliable safety to other divers and handle deeper rescue scenarios. We also introduce lung/diaphragm stretching exercises and yoga for freediving.

On this Bali freediving course (PADI Advanced Freediver), you will start to increase breath hold time and Carbon Dioxide tolerance through static and dynamic training tables.

You will understand and utilise the power of mental and physical relaxation. Students may dive as deep as 30m on the advanced freediver course. However, we put more emphasis on achieving a good feeling during each dive, rather than pushing to your absolute limit.

Your experience and goals are always discussed before starting the advanced freediver course. The idea is to create a consistent freediver with the knowledge and skills to take responsibility for their own development.

Bali freediving course happen in Amed at our freediving school. The tropical coral reefs here are teeming with marine life, making them a great place to learn. After completing the course your instructor will take you on a guided tour of the USAT Liberty, a famous WW2 shipwreck. Here you can explore the sunken structures while your instructor captures photos of you.
