This course is the next step after Level 1 course, which is only an introduction to apnea diving. SSI Freediving Level 2 is more of a thorough practical exploration of human’s underwater potential. The course includes 2 confined water and 4 open water sessions.

This course is the next level of your depth cognition. You are welcomed to experience the peaceful feeling of “free fall” and happiness of a deep dive immersion.

One of the tricks of the course is the mammalian diving reflex — something that helps us to become one entity with the underwater world. We will focus on searching 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 it 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 taking our course and by trying different types of “warm-ups” before deep dive.

During the course, you will improve your equalization technique, work on longer breath-holding and learn how to use changing of the buoyancy during the dive. All these skills will result in more efficient long and deep dives.

In the classroom, you will prepare the body for deep dives using special body stretching and pranayamas.

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 the depth. Maximum diving depth is 30 meters and the majority of students manage to dive in the depth of 20-30 meters.

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

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.
