PADI Freediver course
Freediving is about inward power, discipline and control. If you’ve always wanted to enter the underwater world quietly, staying as long as your breath allows, then freediving is for you. Taking the PADI Freediver course is the perfect step toward discovering why freediving is becoming a popular way to explore beneath the waves. After the course we offer the possibility to do an extra apnea dive to the Museo Atlántico, the underwater sculpture museum.
Depth: 10 metres – max. 16 meters
Duration: 2 days
Before we start

Apnea dive in Museo Atlántico
As a certified Freediver you can do an extra apnea dive in the unique Museo Atlántico, the underwater sculpture museum in Playa Blanca. Mara will guide you on this special tour and will help you to go a little bit deeper and see the sculptures up close. The sculptures are part of a beautiful artificial reef full of marine life and are situated at a depth of around 14 meters. Freediving here is a magical experience!
