Younger than 12? 8 year olds and older can enroll in the PADI Skin Diver course.
The PADI Basic Freediver course consists of two main phases:
In the PADI Basic Freediver course, you learn to use a mask, snorkel and fins, and may also use a wetsuit and weight belt. Using gear designed specifically for freediving is best, however, in this course, you may be able to use snorkeling equipment you already own.

Learn to progressively go farther and stay longer on one breath and sign up for the PADI Freediver Course.
