Freediving is the art of diving on breath-hold.
For thousands of years, freediving has been a tool for people to hunt and gather.
Freediving is a skill we all have but we need to discover first our potential in order to be able to use it.
Freediving is also a fast-growing sport surprising us regularly with what humans are capable of.
Freediving allows you to look from a very different and unique perspective at yourself, and enables you to interact very naturally with water and acuatic wildlife.
Tenerife has excellent conditions for freediving, water temperatures between 18-24 degrees and usually underwater visibility from 15-40m!
There are many reasons why you might want to learn how to freedive...

Why should I do a freediving course?

Freediving is the most natural way to explore the underwater world. Diving down into the deep without any technical equipment, scuba tanks etc., only with the confidence of our own skills and adaptation to the aquatic environment… it’s intense, thrilling, beautiful, demanding, dreamlike, and much more!

It’s all about inward power, relaxation and control over mind and body. Discover hidden powers and capacities that we all have and which allow us to submerge ourselves and hold our breath for much longer than what we might believe.

Scary in the beginning, we quickly learn how our body adapts to this new situation. Let me guide you in this incredible journey of discovering your hidden powers and the underwater world. Learn the principles and techniques of diving on breath-hold, and understand how to practice this beautiful sport and lifestyle in a safe way.


PADI is the world’s leading diving organization. My freediving courses follow their guidelines and safety standards. PADI offers great online learning materials which you will get access to once you sign up for a course, and after completing your course you will be officially certified by PADI.


Generally, the courses have three main phases:

  • Independent study with the PADI Freediver eLearning, knowledge development and final exam. Do the reading at home before your holiday and gain more free time here in Tenerife.

  • Confined water session to learn breath-hold techniques, static and dynamic apnea.

  • Open water session to practice free immersion (pulling with arms) and constant weight (swimming with fins) dives, along with proper buddy procedures.


Each day will start either with theory (deepening the theoretical knowledge and time for questions about the eLearning), a breathing and relaxation session and/or stretching. The practical part of the course takes 2 days, and after successfully completing all the requirements you will get certified.

Breathingwater strongly believes in a personal approach to ensure the highest level of attention. Maximum number of students during a course is 2, but if you would like a completely private course 1:1, please send me a message.

Freediving insurance is included in all courses.


Booking & Cancellation policy

In order to complete your booking, you need to do an initial payment of 100€. There is no refund possible if you later cancel the course.

Why would you not get a refund? Because once you do the initial payment you will get access to your PADI e-learning on There you have all the online theory for your course (actually for all the available PADI Freediving courses).
