Dreaming about having an underwater adventure while in Коh Тао but not sure about committing to a full freediving course? Then the Discover Freediving course is your entry ticket to the world below the surface!
You just need a bit of support and guidance, and you will be ready to explore the sea with your friends. Our freediving instructors will guide you step by step until you become more confident under the water and learn the basics of freediving.
The Discover Freediving course on Koh Tao splits into three blocks: theory, a pool session, and a snorkeling/shallow Freediving trip to one of the most beautiful bays in Koh Tao. If you have limited time, it is possible to do the Discover Freediving program without a snorkeling trip.
The Koh Tao Discover Freediving course is only one day long and has a flexible schedule. You can easily fit this course into your island holiday itinerary.
For your convenience, we keep group sizes small, with a maximum of two students per freediving instructor.
In this session, you will learn what to do and not do while holding your breath as well as essential relaxation and safety techniques. You will see that freediving is not as difficult as it might look.
In this session, you will learn how to use the equipment for snorkeling and freediving, such as long fins, a mask, and a snorkel. You will learn how to hold your breath in a relaxed and safe manner as well as how to swim underwater with long fins. Our freediving instructors understand that you might feel uncomfortable while holding your breath for the first time, and they will help you feel more at ease using a personal approach tailored to your specific needs.
Depending on weather conditions, we will choose one of Koh Tao’s shallow bays for the snorkeling session. An instructor will lead you in the sea using a bright freediving float, which also works as a visual marker for passing boats. At the same time, you can use this bright float as support for rest and recovery as well as for keeping your belongings, such as water or underwater camera, safe and secure.
During the Discover Freediving course, you don’t have to pass any requirements. So, just relax and have fun in the water.
To enroll in a Discover Freediving course you must be 12 years or older. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health.
Price: 2500 Thai Baht
