AIDA Freediving Course - Level 1 star
Freediving courses in Sharm el Sheikh, Dahab and Worldwide

The very first step into Freediving 

This course is the perfect introduction to what freediving is. During this day, or these two half days, you will get in touch with a bit of theory about freediving and about human physiology. Then we'll do some specific breathing and relaxation exercises in order for you to perform your first breatholds in a zen and easy way  (iusually on dry land) . The results are always impressive and everybody gets enthusiastic about their own abilities. It's really great to realise how long one can hold his/her breath when doing it the right way.
 
After that, we'll have a break and we'll just pass through the important theory about equalisation... then we'll go in the water for some dives at a maximum depth of around 10m. You will never be pushed, just positively empowered and closely guided in this new experience of yours.

What does your freediving course includes and what does it not?

AIDA CERTIFICATIONS

EQUIPMENT
If you have your own equipment it's definitely better to take it with you. We can, for AIDA courses or long stays exclusively, borrow you freediving equipment (mask and snorkel, wetsuit, socks and fins, weightbelt and weights) but it is better to check with us first to make sure we do have your size. 

For regular training sessions, nothing is included except if we made specific arrangements prior your stay. 

WATER ACCESS
Entrance fees to Fanar Beach are at your own expenses. The cost is of 100 EGP for beach and facilities access, it includes a bottle of water. Check our freediving spot

INSURANCES
No insurance policy is included in the prices. If you wish to specifically be insured while you are following your freediving courses or training sessions, we can provide DAN coverage for 25 euros. If you don't have an insurance that covers you for freediving incidents, this option is highly recommended.

BEFORE CONSIDERING TO FREEDIVE OR TO ENROLL FOR A FREEDIVING COURSE
... PLEASE READ ...

Freediving is an incredible sport and the experience of depth while holding your breath is a life experience. The practice of pranayama and meditation, the pool exercises and stretching sessions will without doubt be amazing moments too. But you must understand that, like any other sports, freediving has its own risks.

Despite insurances and all safety measures that your instructor will take, his strong and recognised rescue skills, freediving remains a dangerous activity. To follow a course, you are expected to be in good fitness condition, to be a good swimmer and to be accustomed to snorkeling.

All courses, lessons, sessions of practice are featuring some paperworks. You will be asked to sign an assumption of risks and liability release document and to answer and sign a medical statement.

You may have to visit a doctor before to freedive. Please do if you have any doubts about your fitness condition.
