PADI Master Freediver Course

Fine-tune your freediving skills

PADI Master Freediver

Master the art of freediving on this third level freediving course for up to eight students.

If you’re an advanced freediver who wants to learn how to fine-tune your lifestyle and training so that you can approach elite freediving levels, then the PADI Master Freediver course is for you. Through focused sessions, you’ll bring your static apnea, dynamic apnea, free immersion and constant weight skills to the next level.

To enrol in a PADI Master Freediver course you must be at least 18 years old and have a PADI Advanced Freediver certification (or a qualifying certification from another freediver organisation).

Honing your techniques in the classroom and pool, you’ll learn the ultimate techniques for depth freediving. Once your pool training is complete, you begin your open water depth training. Completing a minimum of two certification training dives, you’ll become a PADI Master Freediver as you dive deeper than 27 meters comfortably and easily.
