Freediving Beginner Course
Course Timeline
The Beginner Course consists of a virtual evening class followed by two ocean classes.
Evening Class

Evening class takes place virtually on Wednesdays, 6-9pm, via Google Meet. You'll practice breath holding and ear equalizing, and learn about safety, the gear you need, and how our bodies respond to being underwater.

Ocean Classes
Ocean classes take place on Saturdays at San Carlos beach in Monterey. The Beginner Course includes two of these 2-hour ocean classes, which most people complete on the morning and afternoon of the same day.
After completing your evening class and first two ocean classes, you will be a certified Freediver!
