PADI Freediver Instructor Course Dates

It’s finally here!!! We are excited to announce the dates and updates for the fantastic year 2024 regarding the new PADI freediving courses.

The new updates consist of providing greater access to participants in new locations across Italy. In addition to the well-known locations in Polignano a Mare (BA), Porto Cesareo (LE), Pozzallo in the Ragusa area, and in the heart of the Mediterranean on the islands of Malta and Gozo, we are planning dates in the following cities for this season: Bologna, Ravenna, Naples, Cagliari, and Marina di Ragusa (RG).
