PADI Master Freediver
The PADI Master Freediver course is for advanced freedivers who want to take the final step in becoming a competitive freediver or the prerequisite of becoming a PADI Freediving Instructor. This course will take your freediving skills to the next level.
Cape Town is the perfect place to upgrade your freediving l skills with great confined and open water facilities to practice your breathhold times and depth limits. In this new range of depth you will be able to explore some amazing Cape wrecks or go for a play session with the Cape Fur seals, just on one breath.
The Master Freediver course will learn your to fine-tune your training and diving skills so you are able to approach elite freediver levels. Through focused sessions, you’ll be working on your static and dynamic apnea, free immersion and constant weight skills until you will reach your goal of 27 metres in open water.
Deep, deeper, deepest! In this course there are no real limits as this is all about reaching your own full capacity. As PADI Master Freediver you will have set yourself up as a well trained and knowledgeable freediver that can safely train toward greater depths and longer breathhold times. And there is not a more epic place to take on this challenge than in the majestic waters of Cape Town!
The first part of the course will concentrate on further knowledge development covering topics as relaxation, nutrition and advanced breathing techniques. You will be studying the theory independently using the PADI Freediver Touch and you will complete independent research as part of the Master Freediver Assignment.
In the confined water session you will train to improve on your static and dynamic apnea limits reached during your Advanced Freediver course. In this course we will also include the no-fins dynamic apnea technique.
The goal is to reach a static apnea of 3:30 minutes and a dynamic apnea of 70 metres.
Using what you have learned in all the previous courses will now result in reaching even deeper dives. In the open water session you will practice mouthfill equalization and perform warm-up and workup dives for free immersion and constant weight freediving.
The goal in open water is to reach a depth of 27 metres on a constant weight freedive.
The Emergency First Response course focuses on building confidence and a willingness to respond to a medical emergency. You learn easy to follow steps for emergency care and will practice applying skills in a non-stressful learning environment. For the EFR course you will be using self-study manuals and videos which will lay the basis for the practical assessments of the course.
The EFR course includes:
- Primary Care (CPR)
- Secondary Care (First Aid)

What Diver’s Say
I started with spearfishing but recently I got a job as a spearo guide and needed to do my freediving courses. I was already able to do decent depths but doing these courses made me dive longer and deeper than before.
