Beginner Course

AIDA 2 Course - 2 Days

The 2 day AIDA 2 is the basic beginner course that gives you all the information to immerse in the sport of freediving. To receive the AIDA certification at the end of the course you have to successfully complete a 2 minute breathold, swim 40 m underwater with fins and dive to 16m depth in the ocean. It sounds a lot, but you will be surprised how the right techniques and the training in the course will bring you. Maximum depth during the course is 20m.

Why do we offer the course in just 2 days and others in 3?
We make full use of the new AIDA 2 home study and knowledge review system. This saves time in the classroom and leaves more time for diving. Also we have top facilities in our partner resort Club Serena Resort. This includes 2 perfect swimming pools to not depend on sea conditions for that part.

To enroll in an AIDA 2 Course you must be able to swim at least 200m non-stops 
without fins and at least 300m non-stops with mask, fins and snorkel.
The AIDA 2 Course is designed for beginners with no previous experience in freediving. It is not required having completed the AIDA 1 Course. You will be certified AIDA 1 or AIDA 2 Pool in case some requirements are not completely fulfilled.
