Event Details

Private Course and Coaching Session

Regular scheduled programs do not always work well for everyone. Maybe it’s a tight schedule or maybe you just have a group of good friends that want to do it together. Whatever the reason we offer private courses and coaching sessions at all levels. The format and content can be tailored to your specific needs, whether it being taking your 1st freediving class, improving breath-hold time, equalizing to dive deeper, learning the proper monofin or no-fin technique etc.

To inquire price and availability, please contact Jessea at instructorjessea@gmail.com, or by phone +1-(317)-702-6679 

While a private course does mean more flexibility, there are general course standards that need to be met in order to ensure that your dives are safe and enjoyable. If you are interested in getting certified, please read more details below for certification programs.
