Freediving is much more than a sport, it is a mind-body discipline. If you put in the work, it will give you a strong body and a clear, balanced mind.
Training is how we incorporate freediving into our day to day lives, just like it is for any other discipline. Without training, even the best freedivers will regress in a matter of months.
Our Training Sessions are open to anyone who has taken a course with us or has a minimum of an AIDA 1 (or in the case of Pool Trainings, AIDA1 Pool) or equivalent certification.
If you don't have an AIDA 1 or equivalent certification yet, register for one of our courses and become a Zenner to join our community of Freedivers! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
OPEN WATER TRAININGS
Whether you want to push your depth limit to the next level or come out with us to the open waters for a meditative open water freediving session, our open water trainings are easy and convenient!
We take our boat to a variety of spots in where we get between 22m to 50m of depth, depending on tide, current and weather conditions. Enjoy a relaxing ride, fresh water showers, cold drinks and even air conditioning on hot days on a comfortable cruiser (no public ferries or diesel fumes from launch boats here!).
A coached open water training session costs $80 and covers the boat trip, use of a buoy set-up and coaching from an experienced diver. If you have a buddy and can safety each other (both divers must have at least AIDA 2 certification or equivalent) the cost is $60.
We offer equipment for rent for our open water sessions at the following rates:
$5 per item for mask+snorkel / short fins / lanyard / weight belt
$10 per item for long fins / short wetsuit
$15 for a long sleeved wetsuit (limited availability)
$20 for a dive computer (limited availability)
