Performance Freediving International Introduces Adaptive Freediving Course


Just because you have a physical disability doesn’t mean you can’t experience the joy of freediving.

Performance Freediving International introduced a new “Adaptive Freediver Course” at this year’s Blue Wild Ocean Adventure Expo in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

As PFI Founder Kirk Krack told

“It’s for freedivers with disabilities. We created standards, a whole manual, and it’s all based on the Handicapped Scuba Association program, and they gave us their blessing to use and adapt their programs into ours.”

PFI developed a course that can be tailored to the freediver’s specific disability with additional requirements based on what that diver can and cannot do, as well as the safety and buddy standards.
