Johnny... you are going to the do the course?

Why not organise a trip so people can join you...in freediving the buddy system still applies, in fact it is more vital than before.

from my expiriance 2 days is enough to cover the course. the third day you can do your practice/leisure dive.

johnny...what you can do is ask Universal for recommended duration for the course and ask fo an iternary...if you are able to talk to the instructor herself its better so you can get an expert advice on how to plan your trip.

ask about accomodation and transfers also...hehe..you can plan this..kim seng dah tak sabar dah (cant wait)

V'd decided to take AIDA** 2 STAR after v met Wendy as she say can skip AIDA 1 star wo. My fren, Danny, and I had decided to hit the sea on 1/8/08~4/8/08. Departing from Putra station on 31/7/08 (9~11pm) night bus and leaving the island on 4/8/08 afternoon. The course vil simply take up 3 days time and the las day morning hopefully v can do some fun dives. The course itself cost RM750. Erm... the stay most probably vil go to the ABC guesthouse (cheap ma :laughing11:). Pls drop me a msg if u r interested to join us.

AIDA** 2 STAR
2.5~3 days - RM750
-learn to safely freedive with or without a guide line
-static and dynamic session
-2 open water sessions to max. depth of 20meter
-2 theory sesions & exam
