What is freediving?

Freediving: this unknown.

Since ever the word "freediving" identifies all those sports activities taking place underwater (ocean or pool) in absence of breath. In modern times, instead, it's better identified as "well-being in the water"... not necessarily "under water"!
"Modern freediving", born from the competitive side of our sport, it's all about the development of correct relaxation skills and good motion control, in order to create higher comfort in the water, greater awareness of themselves and, as consequence, improving sport's skills as well as human qualities.


Why to freedive?

Freediving is a sport that involves and develops different areas of our person. Through his practice, even at purely recreational level, you will be able to discover new personal skills, both physical and mental. You will discover that our mind and our body actually have just few limits and many of them are very easily overcome.


Freediving is for everyone?

Unlike any other sport, freediving is practiced mainly through your brain and it develops inside it! You don't absolutely need any physical strength, indeed, considering that muscles burn oxygen, the less you move the better it is! Especially at recreational level (not competing) freediving is a sport that really fits all ages, just like board games: from 0 to 99 years old! At young age you will probably prefer the purely sporty and recreational aspects, while adult you will certainly appreciate more the mental aspects and relaxation.


Freediving is funny?

Learn how to freedive can give huge personal satisfaction: when seeing gradually disappear some alleged limits, you will soon understand how much funny it is to explore the underwater world in complete freedom and safety, without all those constraints that instead scuba diving imposes.
Hovering without weight in a truly three-dimensional environment, even at very shallow depth, it's truly a unique experience that gives you "deep" and incredible sensations, hard to be recreated in other sports.
Being finally able to see the marine animals in their own natural environment, without disturbing them, but rather by stimulating their curiosity towards us, often allows you to enjoy scenes now forgotten from the eyes of our cousins with scuba tanks. In fact, the absence of bubbles and noise created by scuba regulators, plus the graceful and sinuous movements of freedivers, encourage unforgettable encounters with marine life, often from just the very firsts meters.


Freediving is safe?

Since ever, our school has put the safety at the first place. Thanks to years of experience in competitive free diving, our teaching methods, as well as systems and equipment used, are always of the latest generation. Furthermore, in many cases we exceed the normal standards required by the best known international educational agencies:
- maximum ratio of students to instructor is 3:1
- the equipment is specific for freediving, always overhauled and perfectly efficient
- the safety equipment used during normal training are the same as the official competitions
- the use of the floating platform, equipped with safety counterballast system, it is mandatory for all training beyond 40m depth
- the ropes used for training have always a generous and adequate diameter for the activity on going
- our instructors are internationals, highly experienced, up-dated and, of course, insured!

Equalization

Because of our close collaboration with the Italian champion Federico Mana, we have developed an expedited educational program regarding the most important equalization techniques.

A complete understanding of equalization techniques

is essential for safe freediving.

Equalization Awarenes 1 - Frenzel

Learning of Frenzel technique through specific dry skills. First through understanding, then through performance, students will learn this basic equalization technique.

Duration: 2 hours (1 dry + 1 at sea)

Equalization Awarenes 2 - Mouthfill

Specifically recommended for expert or competitive freedivers, the Mouthfill technique is essential in order to break the wall of the depth. To be fully understood, this technique requires time and long dry skills practice. We recommend scheduling the dry and wet sessions at different times.

Duration: 2 hours (1 dry + 1 at sea)

Safety and UW scooter

The "Safety Freediver" and "Underwater Scooter" Special Workshops are offered to certified freedivers who want to break through barriers, expand their knowledge and increase their freediving skills.

Duration: 1 day
Pre-requisite: to be certified SSI Level 2 or equivalent

Underwater Scooter Experience

During this workshop the student will learn to safely freedive utilizing the underwater scooter.Topics include water entry and exit, turns with the underwater scooter, preparation and maintenance of the scooter before and after a dive.

Rent Buoy for Training

Among this year novelty we offer the autonomous training, addressed only to certified freedivers, who can use, from dawn to dusk, a line of our permanent training field, set at the maximum depth as per the certification owned. To be able to train without the direct assistance of our staff, it is mandatory that at least two freedivers, who have previously participated to the Safety Skills Check Dive, are enlisted.

Safety Skills Check Dive

This one hour session is held at sea, where the instructor and student practice safety procedures, and concludes with the instructor checking the skills of the freediver. Should the freediver's skills be found inadequate by the instructor, in order to train autonomously, attendance in the workshop "Safety Freediver" will be required: Safety First!

Duration: 1 hour Site: Training field Tiger Bay Prerequisite: to be certified
... if you are alone

In order to freedive safely, it is mandatory that at least two persons dive together. No one, regardless of their experience or certification may dive or train alone. Therefore, if you are alone, the staff of Only One Apnea Center is available to assist you by monitoring your training and acting as "safety freediver".
