SSI Freediving Level 1 course is an important, smooth and measured introduction to the soundless world of freediving. Everyone is welcomed to take this course even if this would be their first experience of water activities. It is a perfect opportunity for you to build a connection with water and start to enjoy being in it. Before entering the sea you will get a lot of interesting and useful information that is necessary to understand what happens to your body while doing the breath-holding dive (apnea). You will learn how the underwater pressure affects our body and gain a proper skill of pressure alignment, that is, equalization.

Freedive Nusa

FreediveNusa is situated on the Nusa Penida island, a part of Bali province, 12 km from the South-East from Bali. Their mission is to help other people remind themselves of the feeling of being in the water, to live in the water and to feel free there. They hope there will be more people experiencing this feeling. Their approach while teaching freediving is not to chasing numbers or results presented in meters and minutes. Their goal is to teach the consciousness and comfort that exist in the water while having fun and pleasure out of it!

My girlfriend has wanted to do this for a long time, I wasn't sure how well I would do but all my concerns were blown away as soon as we started. Emily made us very comfortable trying something new and it was amazing how much we learned and picked up in just two and a half days! From start to finish it was an experience I tell everyone they have to try, thanks guys!

I rarely write reviews, but had a great experience, and since I read so many myself, need to help others out too! So, I wanted a professional and safe freediving school for my Level 1 course, but also with a cool and chilled vibe, and that is exactly what I got! Emily was my instructor, and I really recommend her. She is extremely knowledgeable, resourceful, and enthusiastic. She guided me throughout all areas in a calm and reassuring way. I went from holding my breath from 1min to then 3min40 in the same afternoon, after her clear and reassuring explanations and demonstrations. In the water, even though I had issues equalising and getting deeper, so she tailored the sessions to suit my needs and to get the best outcome of each session and ultimately the course. I am extremely happy to have done this course in this school, and with Emily's help. This very different experience has already helped me on my scuba diving air consumption, which has dramatically decreased!:) Can only recommend this school to you if you are looking for a professional, safe but also chilled freediving experience!

So far the best school in Bali. Professional, clean, respectful, and FUN !!:) BEST LOCATION for Fundives ! I want to thank for the bottom of my heart All the team FreediveNusa for the amazing experience and knowledge I received. I spend almost 3 weeks to complete the funniest, intense and craziest Instructor course ever! I had the chance to do it with Kirill :) and I had 2 others unforgettable buddies ( Lin and Vera). We start as colleague and we finished the course as a family ! Thank you for everything ! Location: The set up at Freedive Nusa is just perfect. Open rooms, clean equipments, swimming pool. The location is excellent for all the lazy person like me, just across the road from the sea (less than 1min). Hotel and restaurant: nearby (in 4 minutes you are at Penida Colada the best spot ever to eat and read your course) Course: Instructor extremely professional and knowledgeable about Freediving. Theory and practice are done in a logical manner. The teaching ambiance is just Unique ! Bonus: After each Open-water session, you have the chance to end the session with time to dive on the house reef which is just magical. I see 2 turtle and incredible marine life there. The color are beautiful. BONUS2: They organize TRIPS around Bali at Raj Ampat, Komodo and more ! Can’t wait to meet you again

I did the L1 freediving course which was a brilliant experience. The site was great even though it was rainy season (Jan). My instructor, Tim, was really encouraging and easy-going, but I could learn a lot from his as well. I would definitely recommend to beginners and more advanced freedivers too.

I did a beginner level course with Artur. He was so kind, patient and encouraging. Nothing was a problem. I now feel far more confident underwater. I honestly didn’t think I would be able to do it. But with Artur’s support, the impossible was attainable. I am able to take the skills I have learnt here and apply them to many other things that benefit with good breath work, relaxation and courage. Thanks so much Artur and team ❤️
