Accept the Ultimate Challenge and Become a Master Freediver
The Master Freediver course is an ultimate freediving challenge due to its set of serious requirements, including a depth requirement of 32-40 meters underwater, static apnea requirement of 3.30 minutes, and dynamic apnea requirement of 70 meters. These requirements may sound tough, but you will be able to handle them with the support and guidance of our experienced team. The Master Freediver course is also a perfect steppingstone on the way to become a freediving instructor.
Our Freediving Instructor Trainer will be your mentor and work on your individual training program, taking into account your previous results, strengths, and weaknesses. Your training plan will be revised weekly according to your progress and timeframe.
Our standard Master Freediver course consists of three weeks of intense freediving training. However, if you have limited time, please contact us about a shorter version of the course.
The PADI Master Freediver course includes theory sessions, dry training, pool sessions, and open water sessions. The course schedule varies on an individual basis and can be adjusted if you need more time to work on your equalization, static apnea, or depth adaptation. The individualized plan helps you to progress safely and avoid any potential injuries.
During theory sessions, you will refresh what you learned in previous courses and learn new skills, such as mastering mouthfill equalization, physical and mental preparations in freediving, and more. Additionally, you will build your own training plan.
The pool requirements for the Master Freediver course are tough, but with the guidance of your mentor, you will pass them safely and comfortably. Our focus will be on relaxation, a better technique, and gradual adoption. These improvements will help you hold your breath for more than three and a half minutes as well as swim underwater more than 70 meters with fins and 50 meters without fins.
Open Water Training
At the open water sessions, you will refine and improve crucial parts of your technique, such as your streamline position, duck dive, efficient kicking, deep equalization, and so on.
A maximum of three students per buoy will guarantee that you have enough time to concentrate on your technique. Most of the sessions will be under the direct supervision of your instructor who will provide you with safety and feedback.
By the end of the course, you will improve your safety skills and dive comfortably between 32 to 40 meters.
For both pool and open water trainings, we will film your dives and analyze them later in the classroom to better understand what should be improved in your technique or body position.
To maximize your time on Koh Tao, on dry days, you will practice special freediving routines, such as diaphragm stretching, pranayama breathing, and exercises for thoracic mobility and lungs capacity development. We also go through a series of workshops, such as rope management, mental training, and equalization, which are specifically useful for those master freedivers who are planning to become freediving instructor in the future.
