Your first freediving experience

SSI Freediving Level 1.

Discover yourself beneath the surface.

SSI Freediving Level 1 is your entry ticket to the world of freediving. Everyone starts for a different reason – aiming to overcome an anxiety of water, challenging the mind and body, honing the innate ability to explore the oceans’ depths, etc… Whatever the reason, one constant remains: it is crucial to begin your journey with a structured course.

During this course, your focus will be directed to three main points: discovering the Frenzel technique for safe and efficient equalization, learning a new breathing technique for mind and body relaxation, and, most importantly, putting these new skills to practice in the water!
