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.
