Freediving in Krabi

Become a Certified PADI Freediver

Give yourself complete freedom underwater. Take the PADI Freediver Course and earn your certification in just two days.

We are excited to offer the unique opportunity to become a certified PADI Freediver in Krabi! You can learn the fundamentals of freediving from one of the founders of Shark Guardian, Brendon Sing. Brendon is not only a PADI Course Director and one of the leading advocates for shark conservation worldwide – he is also a PADI Freediver Instructor! We are lucky to have him right here in Ao Nang, teaching the PADI Freediver Course in partnership with Sea Gypsy Divers.

Freediving offers the unique opportunity to experience the underwater world with complete freedom. It is a rewarding personal challenge that will show you how quickly it is possible to extend your breath-holding limits. As well, you can have more intimate contact with nature in the absence of noises and bubbles.
