Apnea Total - Master Freediver

3-6 Weeks

The Master Freediver Course is a rigorous and customized training program designed to enhance your freediving skills to an exceptional level. It involves a 3 to 6-week internship and intensive course that is tailored to your individual goals, whether it is to become an instructor, compete in the world of freediving, or simply acquire advanced proficiency and the capacity to fully immerse yourself in any dive site without the aid of scuba gear. This course is exclusively available to freedivers who have already achieved the Apnea Total Advanced Freediver certification.

Freedive Utila all equipment necessary for this course; however, Master Freedivers are encouraged to have their own personal freediving equipment. The minimum requirement is to have your own mask and snorkel. These are available for sale on the island, as are fins and rubber-weight belts. As a Master student, you will recieve a goody bag with a nose clip, T-shirt and hat. Once you have taken part of our Master coruse, you will never have to pay to join us out for diving again

If you have an Apnea Total Advanced certification, or equivalent from another school, there are no specific dates for the Master Freediver Course and it can be started at anytime. Only one thing required - a love of freediving and the water, because this is how and where you will spend most of your time.
