Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to be an experienced swimmer?

Not at all! Only a basic level of swimming is required and you must be able to swim at least 100m in any style for our taster course.


My ears always hurt at the bottom of the swimming pool, does this mean I shouldn't dive?

This is totally normal! Equalising for most people is not an automatic process and takes time to learn. All of our courses involve a detailed equalisation session on the first day, where we teach you how to dive without any ear discomfort or pain. 

What equipment do I need before I start?

Just yourself! We will provide you with wetsuits, masks, snorkels, fins and weights while you are on our courses. We are more than happy to advise you what kit to buy should you want to after finishing.


Do I need a clean medical record?

When you sign up for a course with us you will be asked to complete a medical form stating you are fit to dive. Having a past medical issue doesn't necessarily mean you can't dive with us, but you will need to be signed off by your doctor before hand. 

Do we rent equipment?

We only rent equipment to current and past students. 

Isn’t freediving dangerous?

Sadly freediving has a bad reputation. As with many sports, it can be unforgiving if you don’t know what you're doing, but that’s where we come in! As qualified AIDA instructors we will teach you a methodical, practical way to dive and more importantly, send you away with the skills needed to keep yourself and those you dive with safe.
