Pure Apnea Adventure Freediver I
This is an entry level freediving course which covers the basics of recreational freediving. We split the course over two separate weekends and usually we run around one a month during the summer depending on availability.
The first part of the course is the pool session. This includes two theory sessions, where you will learn about breathing and relaxation techniques, equipment, equalisation, and safety and rescue techniques. The classroom session is followed by a static session in our pool where you will practice holding your breath.
Following the theory and static there will be two sessions in the sea where we will dive up to 10 metres exploring local reefs. On completion you will receive a Pure Apnea Level One Adventure Freediver qualification.
This course is ideal for people looking to learn more about freediving as a sport, people who want to develop their skills in order to practice underwater photography or spearfishing as well as people who would like to learn more about Jersey’s reefs and sea life.
The total cost of the course is £350. We run around 1 course a month during the summer months.
