What to Expect
You will meet your professional freediving instructor at 7:30am at the freediving school in Tamarindo. You will start the day preparing your first freediving experience with some theory about freediving equipment and techniques and a breathing and relaxation techniques session in our dedicated classroom. At around 9am, you will head to Flamingo in our shuttle and jump on the boat with your instructor for the open water freediving session. During this session you will learn underwater swimming, body positionning, duck diving and everything you need to know to be able to perform comfortable freedives beyond 5m/15ft depth. You'll be back to Tamarindo at around 12:30pm after an unforgettable underwater adventure!
