PADI Freediver Course in Kenya- Here at Ocean Tribe we are delighted to announce that we will be holding the first PADI Freediver program to be conducted in Kenya. The course at Ocean Tribe scuba diving in Diani Beach, will be conducted by award-winning Freediver and influencer PADI Freediving Instructor Trainer Dada Li. Dada is one of the world’s top freedivers and frequently travels for teaching programs and working on films around the world.

Freediving is about inward power, discipline and control. If you’ve always wanted to enter the underwater world quietly, on your own terms, staying as long as your breath allows, then freediving is for you. Taking the PADI Freediver course is your first step toward discovering why freediving is becoming a popular way to explore beneath the waves.

Prerequisites

To enroll in a PADI Freediver course you must be at least 15 years old. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with snorkelling, skin diving or freediving is required.

Younger than 15? 12 year olds and older can enroll in the PADI Basic Freediver course and eight year olds and older can enroll in the PADI Skin Diver Course.

Academic

The PADI Freediver course consists of three main phases:

Knowledge development about freediving principles through independent study with PADI Freediver eLearning (or your instructor may conduct class sessions if not available in a language you understand).

In the Pool

Confined water session to learn breathhold techniques as well as static and dynamic apnea. Goal – static apnea of 90 seconds and dynamic apnea of 25 metres/80 feet.

In the Ocean

Open water sessions to practice free immersion and constant weight freedives, plus proper buddy procedures. Goal – constant weight freedive of 10 metres/30 feet.

Equipment

In the PADI Freediver course, you learn to use a mask, snorkel and fins, and may also use a wetsuit and weight belt. Using gear designed specifically for freediving is best, however, in this course, you may be able to use snorkelling equipment you already own.

The cost of the program is $280 USD. If you wish to know more about the course then please contact info@oceantribe.co for more information.
