Recreational Freediver Programs

PFI offers recreational courses to fit any Freedive ability, goal or need.  Whether you have no in or under water experience, or you have decades of experience, you will find a course in the selection below that will help you #1 – Be Safer, #2 – Freediver Deeper #3 – Freedive Longer.

Once you find a course level that’s right for you (feel free to call or email us with questions) check out the Upcoming Courses link to find a date and location that fits for you.  We have instructors all over the USA, Canada, Brazil and even Singapore.  Some instructors teach in different languages as well.  But even as our list of instructors continues to grow worldwide, rest assured that you’re working with instructors of the highest caliber and adhere to the strictest industry training standards and methods. While every other certifying agency including the new emerging ones jumping on the Freediving band wagon loosening up the training standards to make it easier to ‘gain market share’ we are heading in the opposite direction from the herd. We’re continuing to tighten up and make our instructor training standards more rigorous.

How would you feel if while on your first 100ft/30m depth during your course your instructor by standards was allowed to stay at the surface? Not only is your PFI Instructor required to be within 15ft/5m of you at all times on every dive and have the ability to intervene during your dive.  This helps to insure you are as safe as possible while you learning from the best!

PFI’s training philosophy and goals can be summoned up in its original motto of “Safety through Education”. This was the developing creed by which PFI was conceived; first look at how your safety is affected and then second look at the performance aspects of Freediving. With these important elements in mind one can then fully enjoy the amazing experience and challenge that Freediving can bring as a lifelong sport and lifestyle.
