SSI LEVEL 1

SSI LEVEL 1 – BEGINNER – 2 DAYS

Freediving SSI level 1 is the first step to learn safe freediving and the basic techniques of breath-holding, relaxation, correct breathing, streamlining, proper finning and body position. This is done in only 2 days and the aim is to get you to freedive comfortably to 10-20 m of depth. And no, this is not crazy! It is actually a safe and conservative estimate:)

The course includes:

  • 2 theory sessions
  • 2 dynamic apnea sessions
  • 2 open water sessions

PRICE:

325 Euro for single student. If there is at least one more student in the same course you will get a 30 euro price reduction (295 euro instead of 325)! The price includes all equipment, SSI digital manual and digital certification card, and boat transport.

DURATION

2 days from 8:30am to about 5:00pm

SCHEDULE

DAY 1: We usually start in the morning around 9am with a 1 hour breathing and relaxation class followed by a dry breath hold. We will follow with the first confined water session lasting about 60-90 minutes, then have a lunch break before some theory and then follow with the fist open water session.
DAY 2: We start with more theory followed by another confined water session. After the lunch break we have our final open water session, followed by final exam, wrap-up, and celebration photo for our Facebook Page:)

NOTE

Please be aware that the SSI Freediving Level 1 course is scheduled for 2 days. Some people may need additional training sessions to properly learn to equalize and reach depth equirements for certification. Extra open water training sessions with an instructor are 50 Euro per person.

WHAT TO EXPECT

After the SSI Freediving Level 1 course you will have learned the basics of freediving and being a lot more comfortable in the water. To continue depth training for freediving the next step would be taking the SSI Freediving Level 2 – Advanced Freediver Course. During this
course we will train you to increase depth, work on your technique and practice the buddy system for depth freediving.

IN CASE OF CHANGING SEA & WEATHER CONDITIONS

Depending on changing tides in different seasons and also on weather conditions we might need to change the program and schedule the confined water and open water sessions at different times to ensure the best possible conditions for our students.
