DEEP ZEN FREEDIVING MONTH - TRAINING & CERTIFYING OPTIONS
AIDA 2 certifying course
During this month dedicated to freediving training, you can sign up for an AIDA course. The entry level is level 1 but if you are already used to snorkeling and diving a few meters underwater, you can register for level 2 directly. Over three days, you will learn how to breathe to achieve long static apneas, you will go snorkeling the reef and learn to descend vertically along a rope up to a maximum of 20m. You will follow theoretical courses and will be familiarized with the concepts of safety and emergency rescue skills. AIDA Level 2 is a complete freediving course and the opportunity for a memorable experience.
Once certified level 2 of AIDA, or if you already have equivalent training, you can then register for level 3.
AIDA 3 certifying course
AIDA Level 3 is an advanced level during which you will learn the basics of training and deepen your knowledge and practice of freediving disciplines. How to increase your tolerance to CO2, understand the challenges of deep diving and the necessary safety conditions, AIDA level 3 is a complete 4-day course for those who wish to become experienced freedivers and capable of organizing their training sessions with friends or in a club. Alike the AIDA level 2 program, AIDA 3 features static apnea, snorkeling, vertical rope diving and a theoretical exam.
AIDA courses are intensive courses and it is necessary to be in good physical shape to take part. It's tiring to dive every day and have to match constant requirements. This is why we offer other options during this month of June dedicated to training so that you can also consider another pace.
You are allowed to participate in a maximum of two in-water sessions per day. After three consecutive days in the water, you are advised to take a one-day break to rest and study in the dry. It's important to plan rest days so that you can integrate your new skills and stay in shape.
