Training Seminars $150
We offer 2 different Training Seminars here on Kauai. They are "Breath Hold" and "Depth" seminars.
With our Breath Hold Seminar you'll be guided through your max breath hold attempts in a safe and controlled area just as if you were in a competition setting. This includes a warmup time of 45minutes prior to your max breath hold performance attempt. You will have the option of being coached during your max performance and then personally briefed on what you can do to improve your times.
With our "Depth Seminar", it's essentially the same thing but we don't get as organized as in the competition settings. We limit this course to a few individuals due to safety reasons. We either swim out or take a boat out depending on the conditions. We only allow those who have previously taken a freedive course no matter what organization. We require this due to safety as well. This is just for people looking to increase their personal depths. We roll out, set up, hit dives, and then return and talk for a little bit.
