Medical statement

ANSWER

Feeling afraid of the sea is normal, water is an environment to which the human being feels prone and helpless. This course can be a great challenge to master that fear. With our teaching techniques, we will show you that you can master this fear if the adaptation to the sea is done gradually, pleasantly and safely.

ANSWER

If so, it is necessary to go to the doctor to tell you if you can practice this sport. If you have previously dived with a tank, it is very likely that your doctor will tell you that you can dive in freediving.

ANSWER

Remember that we are beginners in this activity, and that in this course you will compete only with your person. We recommend you come and enjoy a good day at sea.

Apnea is a sport and as in any sport you have to practice, have discipline and perseverance to obtain the desired results.

ANSWER

We provide the necessary equipment for level 1, but if you have the equipment that we mentioned please bring it.

Fins, mask and snorkel, neoprene (full, at least 3 mm thick) Belt with maximum weight 3 kg

ANSWER

Any time of the year is ideal. However, the water in summer is warm and with better visibility than in winter. In winter you will need a thicker diving suit and there will be less visibility.
If you are a beginner (level 1) we recommend summer. If you are advanced we recommend any time.

AIDA LEVELS

LEVEL 1

This is a theoretical-practical course, basic for those who have the desire to experience free diving. Only by dedicating two days to basic apnea learning you will learn the principles of breathing, apnea psychology and relaxation exercises in order to feel the depth of the sea. You will understand what we will do in its entirety, and then we will have a session at sea to put into practice what we have acquired. Level 1 limits you to 20 meters deep.

LEVEL 2

Directed to anyone who is familiar with the sport of freediving and have their LEVEL 1 certificate. You will strengthen your free diving technique and also learn to use apnea fins (long fins) in the category of Constant Weight with Fins. Depth is an achievable challenge because you are able to submit to water pressure. In the end you will be able to hold your breath for 2 to 3 minutes, swim horizontally in a pool at least 40 meters and descend 15 and 20 meters feeling relaxed.

LEVEL 3

From August to November we offer AIDA Level 3 courses, because we enjoy teaching in the best conditions of the Sea of Cortez. The warm water, the great visibility, the wind and sometimes even the wildlife swimming around the lines will help you achieve relaxation in the perfect environment. Advanced sea practices, pisciona trainings and theoretical classes are what we will focus on. The program consists of 4 days of practice.
