The SSI Try Freediving course is a great way to give freediving a try. It provides you with an introduction to the concepts and skills used by recreational freedivers, and allows you to dive in a confined water environment with an SSI Dive Professional. You will earn the SSI Try Freediving recognition rating after completing this program. At Encounter Freediving, we pride ourselves on having knowledgable instructors who are patient and encouraging.


For a full SSI Level 1 course, hire gear selected on the pool day will also be available on the ocean day.

If hire fins are selected, please give foot pocket size (equivalent to European shoe size)
