New Freediving Courses in Garajau Reserve

View from Lazareto Diving Center

In the next summer weekends, from August till September, I will give some new freediving courses within Garajau Natural Marine Reserve, one of the best freediving spots in Madeira Island, in partnership with Madeira Natural Park.

These courses are aimed at those who want to start or get a deeper knowledge and experiences of diving, from beginners to athletes, but also practitioners of snorkeling, spearfishing and scuba-divers.

I stress out that these courses are to encourage a conscious practice of freediving, boosting the taste for this activity, an underwater adventure that is both challenging, as relaxing for both body and mind.

Participants may choose to hold a course of one day or two under the following proposed objectives:

Day 1 (SEA-Freediver):

  • Learn the freediving origins and competition disciplines.
  • Learn the risks of freediving and the security rules to prevent them.
  • Practice the double security system.
  • Be able to dive up to 10m deep.
Day 2 (BLUE-Frediver):
  • Practice how to breathe properly.
  • Practice how to relax before and during the dive.
  • Practice the basic techniques of freediving.
  • Be able to dive up to 20m deep.

The training is intensive 8h per day, consisting of theoretical sessions, which include manual and video projection, and practice sessions at sea, including a boat ride in the reserve.

The number of participants in each course is small (max. 4), so that training can be as customized as possible.

The price of each day is 60€ already including insurance.
