SSI Freediving

Brand new to Reefers - Freediving

Learn, progress, evolve and most of all have fun on a Freediving Course with us! Whether you are freediving for the first time, or are an experienced diver, our programs will help you set and achieve your goals and explore your potential!

Our Instructor aims to share his passion and expertise with you. We believe in teaching from experience, guiding students to places we have been before ourselves.

We recognize that freediving is a personal expression of underwater exploration and for some that means diving as deep as possible, for others interacting with marine life. We provide a safe environment and trustworthy, experienced instructors for you to take your diving to the next level and surprise yourself with what is possible.

At Reefers, warm tropical water and great visibility help to increase your comfort in the water and confidence in your ability. Rather than only focusing on technique and skills we always incorporate “fun freedives” into our courses so you can enjoy everything you have learned while exploring the reef and exotic aquatic life. And, once you have completed your course you will find that you can explore the same reef on one breath as you can with a tank!

We teach SSI Freediving courses from beginner to instructor levels, as we believe it offers the most up to date material, quality and professional service available.

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.

Are you in love with the sea? Are you interested in experiencing the enchantment of the sea using only your fin kicks and a single breath? Then let SSI introduce you to the captivating wonder that only comes with FREEDIVING. From clear freshwater lakes to warm tropical oceans, SSI Freediving offers something for everyone.
Immerse yourself into a personal challenge, be suspended in exhilarating action, or settle into the calm and peaceful rhythms of the ocean. Whichever experience you seek, SSI will prepare you for the “Ultimate Freediving Experience”!

Is freediving for me? - Discover Freediving

Have you ever been curious how it’s possible for freedivers to extend their times so long underwater?

Do you want to feel what it’s like to enjoy the freedom without carrying heavy tanks, whether for travelling, more mobility, gaining more comfort in the water or to feel more in touch with the environment around you?
If so, then the Discover Freediving is a great first step for you to develop solid freediving skills.

You’ll learn the basic freediving principles and will focus on practical breath hold techniques. You’ll see that there is nothing superhuman about freediving.
It’s simply a matter of getting your techniques right that will open a whole new dimension inside and outside

What will you learn?

We’re proud to say that we offer the Discover Freediver program for different organizations, to give you the choice with the best experience.

The Discover Freediving starts with an in-depth knowledge development. This will cover safety, techniques, physiology, equipment and awareness. After everything is crystal, we will  practice dry and confined static apnea. With the knowledge you have and the right techniques you’ll notice that it’s easy to surpass our goal of 90 seconds breath hold. You will master to swim at least 25 meters underwater and learn how to assist your buddy.

The discover freediver can be done in only one day (or two days depending on the program you choose).
