Freedive Flow on Gili Air is one of the first freedive centers worldwide to offer all levels of the PADI Freediver Program: From beginner level all the way up to PADI instructor development.

Freediving has become the fastest expanding water sport. It is no surprise that PADI has launched the PADI Freediver program, with the aim of delivering high quality teaching as they have done for the past 50 years in the scuba diving industry.

The PADI Freediver program caters for all skill levels. You can start your open water experience from the age of 15 with the PADI Freediver course. From there you can make your way to the PADI Advanced Freediver course and then continue your training with the PADI Master Freediver course

Tailored Master Freediver Program allows you then to become the best freediver you can be.

During confined water sessions, open water sessions and knowledge development (which is conducted via the PADI Freediver Touch App), you will learn how to be a safe Freediver and a competent buddy who is completely reliable in basic rescue scenarios.

Please do not hesitate to contact  if you have any further questions about the PADI Freediver Course Program.
