Level 2 Freediving Course

Level 2 - SSI Freediving CourseThe SSI Level 2 Freediving course is an intermediate freediving course where the student will be introduced to further concepts for deeper freediving such as freefalling and new equalization techniques. These will improve your relaxation and conserve oxygen that consequently will help you go even deeper!

The theory will give you a greater understanding of the natural changes that occur in your body when you dive, called Mammalian Dive Reflex. Advanced theory and techniques will guide you to become more aquatic, resulting in you being able to stay longer underwater and dive even deeper! Included in this course is a full body and specific thoracic stretching session where you will learn to improve your chest flexibility and therefore make better use of your capacity.

SSI Level 2 Freediving course includes:

  • theory sessions on Entering Advanced Freediving, Advanced Freediving Knowledge and Skills and Taking Freediving Further,
  • buoyancy and advanced equalization techniques,
  • advanced knowledge of pressure, residual volume and thoracic stretching, 
  • static apnea (breath holds in the water) and breath hold training session,
  • dynamic apnea (horizontal under water swimming) training, and
  • four (4) open water depth dives (along a secured line) where you will progressively learn about technique including adequate finning, body positioning, becoming more streamlined and carrying out safety procedures.
  • All these new skills will help you go over 30 meters in a relaxed, efficient and safe manner
