The Quality Difference

One of the regular questions we are asked is why do PADI Freediving courses taught by We Freedive Instructors cost more than the average PADI or SSI Freediving course conducted in most dive shops. And it is a good question. Firstly We Freedive Instructors are not regular Scuba Instructors that have learned to teach PADI freediving courses to supplement their Scuba Instructor income. They are not freelance contractors working for whoever has work for them today.

We Freedive Instructors are freediving professionals who live and breathe freediving. They are often competing and regularly furthering their training to reach their personal best. They don’t teach S.C.U.B.A. as they only focus on freediving. They are qualified under multiple agencies and study all aspects of freediving. Their insight and knowledge on freediving goes well beyond that of the average scuba instructor.

When you pay for training you tend to get what you pay for and if you want the highest quality training available from dedicated professionals then it will most likely cost a little more. At Kiwidiver we pride ourselves on selecting the right professionals for your training to give you the best experience possible.
