Freediving Taster Course

Everybody can learn to Freedive

If you have ever been swimming or snorkeling and just fancied diving beneath the surface to see what’s down there then we can teach you the skills you need to freedive safely and comfortably. Our Freediving Taster course is run to the AIDA 1* Standard which is designed as an introduction to freediving, suitable for beginners. It helps you to develop basic skills, knowledge and safety procedures necessary to enjoy freediving safely.


What does it involve

The course covers the theory of freediving, breathing and breath hold exercises, freediving technique, being a good buddy, safety and most importantly getting in the pool and trying it all out. The course is run by AIDA Instructors over 2 sessions at Jubilee Pool Bristol.

Session 1: We will cover Freediving Theory, Breathing and Breath Hold exercises before moving to the pool and putting it all in to practice with Static Apnea. This session runs 7pm to 10pm.

Session 2: Dynamic Apnea. This session runs the following week from 7.45 to 10pm.


Dates for the next courses

We currently do not have any taster courses scheduled. We usually run these at the start of each year to then take students through Open Water elements during the summer months when the water warms up.
