Have you ever wondered how some people can hold their breath for very long and dive? This is the fairly new and growing world of freediving! Aquarius Scuba is proud to begin it’s very own freediving training at the Etobicoke Olympium on Monday nights.
What is freediving?
Freediving is any of various aquatic activities that share the practice of breath-hold underwater diving. Examples include breath-hold spearfishing, freedive photography, apnea competitions and, to a degree, snorkeling. The activity that garners the most public attention is competitive apnea, an extreme sport, in which competitors attempt to attain great depths, times or distances on a single breath without direct assistance of an underwater breathing apparatus.
The sport of freediving is becoming more popular all over the world, especially with younger generations, and we are proud to say we have helped it grow in Toronto. Join our class and pool session, and you will meet pro freediving coaches, who were part of the world-record breath-hold dive.
Join our optional 1 year Club Membership for only $150, to benefit from world class coaching and quality practice at the Etobicoke Olympium Pool.
**PLEASE NOTE: Discover Freediving is offered on Monday nights at the Etobicoke Olympium Pool. The AIDA 1 Star Pool course is offered every second Thursday of every month. You may upgrade to AIDA 2 Star at any time and continue on with your training on the next 2-3 Thursday nights. Choose the month that best fits your schedule.**

Cressi Gara Modular Nery Fin (Special Edition)
Cressi Nano Mask
Cressi Corsica Snorkel
Cressi Freediving Fin Bag.
The Gara modular’s foot pocket is wider than the other Gara fin models. We suggest to use it with neoprene socks in order to have a proper fit. For use without neoprene socks, we recommend buying one smaller size.
The Nano mask is for advanced freediving and spearfishing, designed to offer an extremely hydrodynamic and compact shape to help divers cut through the water and aid movements in small spaces. The internal volume is minimal and does not require intentional equalizing. The swiveling buckles feature micrometric regulation. Angled tempered glass lenses. Anatomical strap.
The Corsica snorkel is a highly technical snorkel designed specifically for deep freediving and spearfishing. The soft bendable large diameter tubing makes it extremely comfortable to properly position behind the head while maintaining ease of breathing on the surface. When diving, the mouthpiece tucks neatly under the chin for the ultimate in hydrodynamics. The anatomical hypoallergenic silicone mouthpiece provides extreme comfort during long durations in the water.
Cressi – Gara Modular Freediving Fins
An interchangeable blade which is very lightweight and reactive and also well-adapted for the most demanding of free-diving use.
Thanks to its speciﬁc and exclusive design, it’s more propulsive when passing through the leg-kick, which gives an optimum return of the blade.
The foot-pocket is very comfortable and comes in a composite material : soft rubber around the foot arch, and a rigid part along the sides and traction surface.
It’s ample ﬁ ttings easily allows it to be worn with diving socks.
Cressi – Gara 300 LD Freediving Fins
The structure of the Gara 3000 LD is identical to the greatly-appreciated Gara 3000, but the material of the blade, which is softer, is what makes them stand out.
The LD in the 3000 LD stands for Long Distance, indicating the main use of the product, and these fins have emerged from the need to offer enthusiasts increasingly powerful fins, which are however less demanding than the Gara 3000 fins.
Less muscle effort is required for kicking so divers can use them for longer, making them perfect to use many hours in a row.
The softer blade is also very suitable for use in cold water, which is notorious for its tendency to stiffen materials and make them less flexible.
F-DUAL MASK The F-Dual is a single-lens mask featuring a unique assembly of lens and skirt without a frame. The mask design bonds a high-grade silicone double-feathered edge skirt directly to a single tempered glass lens for the ultimate in simplicity. The silicone facial is assembled directly on the glass without the need for a frame. This system […]
