Who should take this course?

This course is for freedivers who have already completed their PADI Freediver course, or another level one course at a qualifying agency. Students must be at least 15 years of age, and must be certified in CPR by EFR, Red Cross, or another qualifying agency. The PADI medical form should be looked over 3-4 weeks prior to your course because certain medical conditions will prohibit participation in the course without a doctor's signature.

What will you learn?

The PADI Advanced Freediver course deepens student knowledge of static apnea, dynamic apnea, free immersion and constant weight freediving from 16-24 metres/55-80 feet. Students will learn to hold their breath over 2.5 minutes and will learn an entire fitness routine to further develop their body's ability to withstand the challenges of freediving.

What gear will you need?

Mask, snorkel, fins, rubber weight belt, and a wetsuit of at least 3mm are required. Freediving specific gear (ex, long fins) is preferred but not required.

Selecting your personal freediving gear is part of the fun. Our PADI Freediver Center will help you find the right mask, snorkel and fins that are specifically designed for freediving.

How do I enroll?

Sign up on our website after selecting a course that fits your schedule, or consider scheduling a private course!. Call Scuba Monkey / Blue Lagoon at (352-518-6323) if you'd like to ask any questions of our staff. Reservations are only held when paid in full,  and there is a $25 rescheduling fee if within 2 weeks of your course. You will need to have a medical release signed by a doctor if "Yes" is indicated on any line items of the medical form.


The PADI Freediver course is flexible and performance-based, which means that your PADI dive shop and PADI Freediver Instructor can offer a wide variety of schedules, organized according to how fast you progress. Knowledge development is handled through independent study with the PADI Freediver Touch – an interactive tablet/smartphone based app. You pace yourself as you work through each topic, then complete an overall Knowledge Review, then an Exam. Your instructor will focus on helping you become a confident and comfortable freediver, not on how long it takes. You earn your certification based on demonstrating you know what you need to know and can do what you need to do. This means that you progress at your own pace – faster or slower depending upon the time you need – to become an advanced freediver.
