Who should take this course?

Freediving is about inward power, discipline and control. If you’ve always wanted to enter the underwater world quietly, on your own terms, staying as long as your breath allows, then freediving is for you. Taking the PADI Freediver course is your first step toward discovering why freediving is becoming a popular way to explore beneath the waves.

Torpedo Rays is proud to team up with Apnecity to bring you this course. ApneaCity is the first AIDA (Association internationale pour le développement de l’apnée) and PADI school in Canada and the only AIDA school in the greater Montreal region. ApneaCity is recognized by the Canadian national association, AIDA Canada and was founded by two passionate freedivers, Philippe Beauchamp and Francois Leduc, both trained and certified by one of the world’s best known freedivers, William Winram.

To enroll in the PADI Freediver course you must be at least 15 years old. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with snorkeling, skin diving or freediving is required.
