A fantastic introduction to the exciting sport of freediving
Taught by some of the world’s most experienced freediving instructors, our Try Freediving course will introduce you to the history and development of freediving and give you the chance to experience it for yourself.
You’ll learn about buddying and freediving equipment, how to breathe correctly, how to hold your breath safely, and uncover the secrets of the mammalian dive reflex. You’ll then get the chance to put it all into practice in the pool. Static and dynamic apnea sessions will prove how long you can hold your breath for and how far you can swim underwater. You’ll be amazed at what you’re capable of – especially when you strap on a pair of long freediving fins to power your way through the water.
The Try Freediving course lasts 3 1/2 hours, split between the classroom and the pool. You’ll learn the theory first before getting into the water for static apnea and dynamic apnea sessions. We’ll provide you with all the kit you need including a wetsuit. We keep course numbers low so you can learn at your own pace under the watchful eye of our skilled, experienced instructors.
This course is a pre-requisite if you’d like to come to our freediving club pool training sessions or the Monofin Fundamentals course. We also offer you a lifetime guarantee*, so after the course you have the benefit of our continued support on your freediving journey.

For as long as Go Freediving is trading, we will happily answer your questions and provide advice via email, telephone or in person about freediving (within the scope of your course). So if you have any queries about kit, training, where to go freediving abroad, or how to improve your technique, we’ll be there for you.
Wetsuit hire is included in the price of our Try Freediving courses however if you already have a wetsuit then we recommend you bring it as it is likely to be a better fit for you. Scuba wetsuits are suitable as long as they’re at least 5mm thick. Triathlon suits tend to be less suitable as they don’t have hoods – although the course is held in a heated pool, you can get cold during static apnea.
