SSI Freediving Level 3 is the last step in the training system for SSI freedivers. It is accessible for trained freedivers who have enough experience and able to dive on the depth of 30 meters or deeper. This deep diving course will make you much more confident about all your skills.

The main focuses of this course are training of the thorax flexibility which is crucial for deeper diving, learning and mastering the Mouth-fill method of equalization and diving lower than lungs residual volume using exhale dives.

Besides thorax flexibility and equalizing techniques will are going to teach the body to be more efficient in switching in mammalian diving reflex, which allows us to be more relaxed, consume less oxygen and compensate for the fast-growing pressure.

We are going to spend a lot of time and afford psychological preparation for deep diving using yoga, meditation, and deep relaxation techniques.

Usually, SSI Freediving Level 3 could be completed in 4 days (we suggest having at least few more days for additional training sessions) but for those who are looking for deeper and longer training opportunities, we can offer a month-long course that will also include Level 3. That would be a Freediving Master Course.
