About Freediving Courses and Snorkeling trips with qualified AIDA instructor. Level 1, 2 and 3 star AIDA Courses
Northwest Freediving School cover
Description At Northwest Freediving School we run AIDA courses of level 1, 2 and 3 and training sessions. These AIDA education courses are about building your skills for safe controlled freediving. If you are new to freediving then the easiest way to start is to enrol in a course with our experienced and certified freedive instructor. Even the beginners courses will take you past simple snorkelling and will show you a level of comfort in the water that you never thought possible.
AIDA courses cover all levels of freediving from complete beginner to very advanced and competitive level freediving. On an AIDA course, you will learn what freediving is, how to do it, how to get the most out of your time in the water and most importantly - how to do it safely.

What is freediving?
Have you ever dreamed of exploring the underwater world free from equipment? Freediving is the most natural and serene way to explore the depths of the oceans with minimal impact. It is also the ultimate way to free yourself and spend more time enjoying the beauty and silence of the sea.
Anyone who has held their breath underwater has freedived. However, freediving is not simply about seeing how long you can hold your breath or how deep you can go on a single breath. You have to create the right attitude and pay attention to the limits of your body and mind. The true appeal of freediving is in the silence and calm it brings to people's hectic lives.
Freediving as a sport
As well as the perfect way to relax at the weekend, freediving is an international competitive sport. Professional freedivers exploit the bodies' diving adaptations to go to depths of over 200m on a single breath. These diving reflexes help conserve oxygen by restricting the blood flow to your extremities conserving it for your vital organs.
Since 1992 AIDA have been organising freediving competitions around the world making the sport safer but as competitive as ever. Freediving competitions also bring the community of freedivers together
