Begin your adventure in freediving with a group of professionals!
After the introduction to freediving, which comprises the first level of AIDA certification, you will be eligible for the AIDA One Star certification. This course is basically a one day beginner’s guide to freediving. During the course, Freediving Tenerife will teach you all the basic skills and knowledge, and most importantly, safety procedures so that you can enjoy free diving safely within your own limits.
You’ll go through a theory session in the morning that will cover equipment, equalization and safety. Afterwards, a breathing session. This session is very important because it will teach you how to breathe before and after a dive as well as important relaxation techniques.
And finally you’ll hit the pool or ocean, depending on location, to practice what you’ve learned. Once in the water, you’ll be taught correct finning style and the most efficient ways to start your dives. If their is enough time, you might get into the mermaid technique.
Possible spots (depending on weather): Abades, Alcala, Tabaiba, La Calete, Montaña Amarilla
Tenerife is part of the Canary Islands which are really close to Africa. Thanks to this fortunate location, Tenerife has great weather all year round, there is no rainy or windy season, though it can get a little cold at night in the winter.
On this volcanic island, which has lots of great sites for snorkelling and fun dives, your beginner courses will be conducted on a small bay with a family of turtles.
Most of the training sites are a short swim from shore however a boat is available if more depth is required. With such a variety of training locations you’ll never get bored as you can train somewhere different every day.Objectives
