Freediving Courses

Learn to Freedive

WaterMaarq certification freediving courses are the foundation to becoming a Freediver.

World Class Learning

The certification courses are designed to work in levels, each building upon the last. Following the Freediver Basic, there are three main course levels, which develop your abilities, knowledge and technique to safely and effectively freedive deeper and for longer on one breath.

Learning – You’re In Control

Courses feature the latest self-paced learning systems, which combine technology, practical dry training exercises and professional in-water instruction. Once your theory training is complete, you are ready for your first pool training sessions. Once the foundation pool skills are in place, then it’s time for freediving in the open water!
