Freediving Courses

NAUI has partnered with Performance Freediver International (PFI) to offer the most cutting edge and safest training standards in the sport. Freediving training teaches the techniques to allow you to comfortably enjoy the underwater world and improve your breath-holding techniques.

Given their shared commitment for quality instruction, NAUI joined with PFI to align standards and provide the best freediving instruction based on the needs of our students.

 

When it comes to training, experience counts! As one of the oldest and most respected scuba certifying agencies in the world, NAUI has long been recognized as the leader in diver training, offering both skin diving and scuba diving courses to the general public since 1960.

In 2015, NAUI and PFI announced an alliance to offer freediving training courses to a growing audience of freediving enthusiasts and competitors. Performance Freediving International (PFI) is the longest running Freediving Certification agency in North America and second longest worldwide dedicated solely to freediving instruction.

Given their shared commitment for quality instruction and safety, NAUI joined with PFI to align standards and provide the best freediving instruction based on the needs of our students. Because individuals have different levels of ability and interests, NAUI and PFI offer a variety of training programs at all levels to include recreational and competitive training objectives.
