RECREATIONAL CMAS FREEDIVING

CMAS free-diving is also a recreational sport, celebrated as a relaxing, liberating, and unique experience. Many snorkelers are technically free-diving when they perform any sort of breath-hold diving. Thus proper training to CMAS free-diving and supervision are of the utmost importance.

Like other water sports, CMAS free-diving has beneficial and therapeutic properties. The experience of freedom in an underwater environment makes CMAS free-diving somewhat of a personal and spiritual journey for many. Yoga is used by many practitioners in order to increase focus, breath control and overall performance.
Without proper training and supervision, free-diving can be extremely dangerous, This is why CMAS created free-diving training programs and courses based on the experience of certified CMAS instructors from all over the world. The aim of these CMAS programs is to maximise the safety and the comfort of the participants. The motto of CMAS education is: a trained CMAS free-diver is a safer CMAS free-diver.

The European International dive education system CMAS recognises only three main levels of dive education indicated by a one star, two star, or three star system. One star indicates an ability to dive, two stars indicate an additional skill to rescue struggled divers, and three star indicates the additional skill in leading a group of divers.

The certification levels of PADI Open Water Diver, PADI Advanced Diver, PADI Rescue Diver & EFR, PADI Master Scuba Diver and PADI Divemaster is loosely equivalent the CMAS One-Star Diver, CMAS Two-Star Diver, CMAS Three-Star Diver and CMAS Four-Star diver, although the European courses tend to be longer and more intensive than their U.S. counterparts.
