Duration: 4 days
Maximum depth: 30m

This course is the next step after the Level 1 course, which is only an introduction to apnea diving. Level 2 is more of a thorough practical exploration of human underwater potential. You will go deeper and learn more advanced skills of freediving.

Wave 2 Course You are welcome to experience the peaceful feeling of freefall and the happiness of deep dives. It suits freedivers who can confidently dive to a depth of 18-20 m already, know all the basics, and have enough open-water experience. If you are a certified freediver but haven’t reached this confidence yet then you can take a coaching session with an instructor to be better prepared for that new step.

The main focuses of the course

  • Deep diving and freefall
  • Mastering equalization techniques for deeper dives
  • Proper warm-up techniques
  • Freediving with no-fins
  • Proper safety and how to become a confident reliable buddy for others

The goal of the course is that after completing all the requirements you become a confident freediver who knows how to plan the training session, how to perform warm-ups, how to provide safety to others, how to rig the ropes, etc. After the course, you will be able to train independently with other experienced freedivers without direct instructor supervision in any freediving location.

Level 2 is a comprehensive 4-day course covering all freediving disciplines. It includes 3 pool sessions and 4 open water sessions.

Sample schedule of the course

The schedule may be adjusted depending on weather conditions or the needs of participants.

One of the first topics will be a deeper understanding of the mammalian diving reflex (MDR) — something that helps us to become one entity with the underwater world. We will focus on searching for comfort in every discomfort and on the adaptation of the body to the breath-holding effects. These surprising abilities are possessed by all marine mammals and humans can adapt them to freedive deeper and longer. This has been achieved by the world’s top freedivers. You will learn to “activate” these reflexes to reach the best results by trying different types of warm-ups before deep dive attempts.

During the course, you will improve your equalization technique by mastering Frenzel Maneuver and air shifting, work on longer breath-holding, learn how to use changing of the buoyancy during the dive end to perform effortless freefalling. All these skills will result in more efficient long, relaxed, and deep dives.


Every day before the sessions you will prepare the body and mind for deep dives using advanced body stretching, breathing exercises, and mental techniques.

You will practice no-fins freediving both in the pool and in the open water – the purest form of freediving! The no-fins technique not only develops and builds your confidence and comfort in the water but also improves and fine-tunes your coordination. Learning this technique gives you complete freedom and flexibility to freedive anywhere in the world without needing fins.

No-Fins Freediving

You will improve your skills of insuring your buddy at the moment of immersion as well as the rescue techniques from the depth.

Comfort, understanding, and proper technique in this course are more important than reaching a certain depth. The maximum diving depth is 30 meters and the majority of students manage to dive at a depth of 25-30 meters in a comfortable and relaxed way.

After completing this course you will become a confident freediver, who will have enough skills and experience to continue practicing with other experienced freedivers and be able to provide safety and support to each other.

After additional training, you can continue learning freediving by taking Freediving Level 3 course or a one-month Master Course.

Of course, we can also invite you to join our regular Manta Trips and experience freediving with awesome Manta Rays.

I never did a course before but I have some experience. Can I start with the Level 2 course?

If you never did a course before it is highly recommended that you start with the Level 1. There is a lot of information vital for your progression and for your safety. And there are many topics which won't be taught a second time on the next courses, such as proper breathing for freediving, breathing for relaxation, how to do a proper and safe breathe-up, plus safety and rescue from blackout, proper fining and streamlining, etc.

You should know all the basics and should be able to dive at least up to 15-20 meters confidentially and smoothly to be able to join Level 2 course.

How much time I will spend in the water during the course?

Level 2 course includes 2 confined water sessions (static apnea and dynamic apnea) and 4 open water sessions. After almost every open water session we have fun diving on the reef as well.

How big is the group during the course?

There is maximum 4 students for one instructor. So you can be sure, it will be enough instructor's attention for every student and everyone's needs will be met.
