Breaking down the days
Day one - Building confidence
We will briefly go over the theory you would have read before starting with us and jump right into breathing (breathing mechanics, how and why), equalisation and breath hold training - on dry land and in the water. The goal is to build an understanding of ones body and the signals it triggers which leads to breath-holding confidence. Afterwards we will head over to the open water and have our first dive on the line.
Day two - Skills
This day includes two sessions (two open water and one closed water). We will practice skills such as finning technique, streamlining, duck-diving and vertical line diving.
Day three option - furthering skills / new personal best or excursion
You have a choice between working on your weaknesses, develop new PB’s in whatever discipline you choose or go on an exciting excursion around Malta or Gozo.
