Beginner’s Freediving Course (Molchanovs Lap 1)


This course provides an excellent basic introduction to freediving, great for those who want to test the waters (pun intended) before enrolling for the depth component, or for those who are only interested in pool training.

It consists of theory lessons via a series of engaging online videos where you learn directly from the world's best freedivers on topics such as breathing technique, physiology, safety and equalisation. 

During the following practical session, you will learn the key breathing techniques to prepare for a breathhold dive. Finning and equalisation techniques, duck diving and safety principles are important components that you will be taught.

The course will be conducted in a sheltered bay in the Southern Islands (due to covid-19 restrictions on pool use), mimicking calm pool conditions. The duration is half a day (with the theory portion completed before the course) and the cost is $260 per person for a group lesson. This includes boat transfers to the Southern Islands and use of equipment. Wetsuits are optional, but recommended if you tend to get cold easily.

On the successful completion of this course, you will have the option to continue to complete the open water component (additional $290) to receive a Molchanovs Wave 1 certification.

Private courses are also available, do contact us for more information. 

This course requires a minimum of 2 students to run. If we are unable to run the course, we will notify you 2 days before the course and offer to reschedule or a refund.
