SSI Try Freediving
During this try dive we would like to give you an initial feeling about freediving and how it works to be underwater without scuba gear. This course takes one day and is suitable for everybody and every age. First we take you through some theoretical and practical skills in the pool. Here you can decide whether freediving could be something for you.

After having participated in this program, you will notice at any rate that you hold your breath for much longer than before and that you remain much calmer. This gives you a real sense of achievement.

Minimum age: 10 years

Duration: about 3 hours
