Our AIDA 1 Discovery Day will give you your first taste of freediving in Palawan’s top destination, El Nido. You will start by discussing with your instructor the guidelines essential to the safe practice of freediving. Next you will learn breathing techniques to help you improve your breath hold times. When ready you will move on to the water for a static session. By practicing breath holds at the surface, you will see for yourself the benefits of proper preparation and relaxation. After lunch, back in the water for the dynamic session. This will be your chance to practice your fining technique with your instructor in a shallow area of the lagoon.
