Starting the Freediver course students are taught constant weight diving techniques. The course develops a detailed understanding of all aspects of breath-hold diving, including history, physics, physiology, psychological factors, breathing techniques and emergency procedures, along with skills and open water freediving experience. Instructor courses are also available.
The Freediver course is the first certification level in the world of Freediving. This is a two day course which includes time in the classroom, the pool and open water. You will learn breathing techniques and how to use buoyancy and other laws of Physics to build your dive.
The Advanced Freediving course gives you the opportunity to refine what you have learned in your first course, while reaching deeper depths.

This course also focusses more on safety and rescue techniques. You will also start to focus on different disciplines that freediving has to offer.
Freedive the USS Kittiwake
Why not join us for the ultimate freedive! The 251 foot USS Kittiwake, a former US Navy submarine rescue vessel ASR-13 was sunk on the West side of Grand Cayman on January 5, 2011. She sits in 60ft of water (max) to 10ft, ideal for Freedivers to explore & enjoy. We offer a variety of afternoon trips to the wreck and one of our freediving Instructors can accompany you for your comfort & safety.
