Big Blue Freediving - Koh Tao - Thailand

Courses in English & Spanish

Discover Freediving Course

Discover Freediving

 

 For those who have never freedived before and would like to test in the world of freediving and the underwater world.

The Discovery course consists of a short classroom theory session in which physiology, breathing, relaxation and rescue techniques are discussed. This is followed by a ‘dry’ breathing and relaxation practice session during which you will implement the basic techniques for appropriate diaphragmatic breathing. Finally, there is an open water session where you will put into practice all the fundamental freediving concepts learned so far.

Requierement 10 years old, max depth 5 meters

Level 1 Freediving Course

Level 1 - SSI Freediving

 

Here you will learn the proper breathing techniques, familiarize yourself with diaphragmatic breathing and take a deep breath like you never have before. In the SSI level 1 Freediving course you acquire proper skills and knowledge to partake in freediving to depths of 20 meters in the most relaxed and safest manner possible. You will develop skills necessary to train your body to be more efficient with oxygen, gain better respiration and muscle flexibility and learn new skills to take your freediving to the next level.

SSI Level 1 Freediving course includes:

Theory:

  • theory sessions on Freediving Equipment, Physiology of Freediving, Freediving Skills and Freediving and Your Freediving Environment,
  • specific breathing techniques

Practice sessions:

  • dry breath hold and relaxation session,
  • dynamic apnea (horizontal under water swimming) and safety procedures,
  • two (2) 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.

Requirements: Be at least 12 years old, be able to swim

Includes: Freediving equipment, student’s online kit, freediving insurance and SSI online Certification.

 

Level 2 Freediving Course

Level 2 - SSI Freediving Course

Is an intermediate freediving course where you 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.

Theory :

  • theory sessions on entering advanced freediving, knowledge and skills to Take Freediving Further,
  • buoyancy, proper weighting
  • advanced equalization techniques,
  • advanced knowledge of pressure, pulmonary physiology, residual volume and thoracic stretching among others
  • concept of CO2 tables

Practical sessions:

  • static apnea (breath holds in the water) and breath hold training session,
  • dynamic apnea (horizontal under water swimming) training
  • 4 open water depth trainings (along a secured line)
  • progressively learn about technique including adequate finning, body positioning, becoming more streamlined and carrying out safety procedures.
  • Freefall
  • relaxation
  • All these new skills will help you go over 30 meters in a relaxed, efficient and safe manner
