Make the most of the wondrous underwater world after this two day freediving course on the Gold Coast. Learn the basics on an interactive app, practice breathing and rescue techniques in a pool session and dive to depth during two open water sessions in the open ocean.
Discover why freediving is becoming a popular way to explore the underwater realm during this one day basic freedive course on the Gold Coast. The PADI Basic Freedive course contains two phases - knowledge development and a confined water session. The knowledge development phase is handled through an interactive app and theory session which covers how the body reacts to breath holding, how water pressure affects you, freediving equipment, important safety rules and buddy procedures. You'll also participate in a breath workshop, where you'll learn how to calm the mind and manage stress relief in preparation for your dive. The second stage takes place in a swimming pool where you will learn breathing techniques whilst floating (static apnea) and whilst swimming (dynamic apnea).
Once equipped with the skills and knowledge, you'll make your way out into the big blue to explore the underwater wonders of the Gold Coast over two open water dives. Feel an unmatched level of freedom as you practice diving down while breath holding, either by pulling yourself along a line (free immersion) or duck diving head first while following a line (constant weight). As you learn to relax, you'll gradually increase the depths from 10 to 16 metres.
Must be able to swim. Must be 12 or older.
Activities on day two are weather dependant.
This experience takes place in Bundall, QLD.

We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
