This lesson will prepare you to dive safe and effortless while holding your breath. You will learn new breathing techniques as a preparation for longer breath holds. There is a small theory part about safety procedures while doing freediving. In the water session we will work on diving and underwater swimming techniques, equalization and buddy team system. There will be plenty of time to discover the reefs from below and observe the marine life in a silent way. ( Note: this is just a half day introduction, without a certification card)
I'm a freediving instructor since 15 years, introducing the purest and most peaceful way of diving. Freediving is not only holding the breath and dive down but also forgetting all thoughts for a while and just be part of the ocean, and that is a amazingly beautiful feeling! And I would love to share it with as many people as possible in the crystal clear, blue water of Ishigaki.
Freediving equipment Wet suit, mask, snorkel, fins, weight belt, buoy, medical first aid kid
I pick you up from your Hotel and drive to the freediving spot. All my lessons are done by van, as this is the most comfortable way to reach the best spot. I will choose the spot depending on the weather(wind and wave) condition on that day for the safety reason. After the breath hold technique session we go in the water for about 2 hr. After the tour I bring you back to your Hotel.
