Beginner’s Pool Course (Molchanovs Lap 1)


Want to get a freediving certification but not sure if you are ready to head out into the blue?

This pool-based course provides an excellent basic introduction to freediving, great for those who want to test the waters (pun intended) before enrolling for the open water 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 pool 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 over half a day (with the theory portion completed before the course) and the cost is $260 per person for a group lesson. This includes the use of equipment (mask, snorkel and fins), and 2 free pool training sessions (worth $60)* after completion of the course.  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 $330) to receive a Molchanovs Wave 1 certification.

*The free trainings sessions have to be used within 2 weeks (14 days) immediately after the course date. 

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.
