Classroom and Pool Sessions
Open Water Sessions
We will be using a boat for all of the ocean sessions. The cost of the boat is about $60/day.
- Mask, fins and snorkel – Preferably low volume Freediving mask and long blade fins or mono fin.
- Wetsuit with gloves and boots – 3mm freediving suit required for pool and ocean sessions. Good freediving suit with attached hood is perfect.
- Weights and weight belt – Having an assortment of smaller weights to adjust for proper buoyancy is a must.
- Depth and/or timing device – A waterproof watch at the very least, better yet a freediving computer is perfect.
Check out general gear recommendations.
Don’t worry about lines, floats and those sorts of things, we’ll bring that. We also travel with an assortment of freediving computers for you to try out as well. Along with all of this we’ll video your clinic so you can review each day, your skills in the water as they improve.
There are many hotels in the area. You can do a search for the classroom address on sites like www.hotels.com or www.expedia.com and see many choices.
