Free Diving Class

One Breath, One Depth, Inner Calm

Becoming "The Freediver" is the ultimate goal for any avid snorkeler or breath hold diver, and here at Bamboo Reef we strive to bring you to the next level of your freediving abilities.  At Bamboo Reef you will learn proper breathing techniques for extended diving, in water safety, proper post dive recovery and we will show you the skills necessary to dive deeper and stay down longer.


Classes are structured into 2 training sessions

  • Session 1 — Covers an academic review, breath hold sessions, general safety information and pool training.
  • Session 2 — You get to put your pool training to the test.  In the ocean, you will dive down to designated depths demonstrating the various skills you have developed in the pool.
