La Paz, Baja California Sur

Our freediving courses offer a safe environment to learn theory, practice technique and enjoy freediving with the marine environment.

 Theory sessions will be absorbed in a tranquil setting where questions are encouraged to fully comprehend the subject matter.  A local pool is utilized to conduct our confined water static and dynamic skill training.  However if conditions permit, we may conduct our confined water training and theory sessions in a natural setting.  

The open water depth skills will be conducted in the Sea of Cortez.  Freefall Academy works with the local fishing community here in Baja to provide round-trip water transportation for our students for the open water sessions.  Depending on conditions and logistics, we might do the depth sessions at Cerralvo Island or at La Paz Bay. Enjoy the ride and look for wildlife while we get to the diving spot.

If conditions are good, at the end of the day we’ll go to a local reef where you can swim with sea lions, reef fish and dolphins if you’re lucky.

All courses will be taught by AIDA instructors.  AIDA or the International Association for Apnea Development oversees all official freediving competitions and world records.  Freefall courses are designed using the standards of AIDA to accommodate the complete beginner to the experienced freediver.  All courses include boat and certification fees.  

We also offer courses in the Mayan Riviera (Playa del Carmen-Tulum) a few months a year. Contact us for more information.
