Discover Freediving course
Have you ever dreamed of swimming like a dolphin or wondered what it feels like to glide through the ocean just holding your breath? That's what Freediving is all about! If you want to find out but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Freediving will let you try Freediving to see how much you like it! During the Discover Freediving experience you’ll learn proper breathing and swimming techniques to bring you past 5m/15ft depth. Take a deep breath and let the adventure begin!
What to Expect
You will meet your professional freediving instructor at 7:30am at the freediving school in Tamarindo. You will start the day preparing your first freediving experience with some theory about freediving equipment and techniques and a breathing and relaxation techniques session in our dedicated classroom. At around 9am, you will head to Flamingo in our shuttle and jump on the boat with your instructor for the open water freediving session. During this session you will learn underwater swimming, body positionning, duck diving and everything you need to know to be able to perform comfortable freedives beyond 5m/15ft depth. You'll be back to Tamarindo at around 12:30pm after an unforgettable underwater adventure!

Gauthier is a great instructor (and dude!) :-) I love the idea of the 101 courses (free diving and spearfishing) offers a great introduction to each without a full commitment! Thanks for a great time!

My wife got me the certification class as a birthday gift. There hasn't been any surf over the last couple of weeks in Tamarindo, so timing was perfect. I can't believe how far a 2-day class took me. Gauthier taught me breathing and diving techniques...More
