Freediving Courses & Certifications!
Molchanovs Wave 1 | Wave 2

During the first 2/3 days of the trip, you will have the opportunity to complete either your Wave 1 or Wave 2 Freediving Course. Our very experienced Molchanovs freediving instructors will be teaching you a mixture of freediving theory, relaxation and breath hold skills, equalisation skills, how to reach depths you've always dreamed of reaching, and much, much more.

Don't know how to freedive? No worries. As long as you can swim 200m comfortably, we will teach you the rest! You will be surprised at just how much your body is capable of. 

If you currently have no freediving certifications you can complete your Wave 1 course. 

If you've completed your Wave 1 (or equivalent) you can complete your Wave 2 course. 

Wave 1 - up to 20 metres deep max
Wave 2 - up to 30 metres deep max

 

Spearfishing Courses

During the afternoons in our down time, we will be running Spearfishing Courses. They will be run by our instructors Ellie and Jordan, who have over 17 years combined experience spearfishing and have shot some incredible fish in this time! These courses will be run on deck (most likely with drinks in hand) so you do not need any of your own spearfishing gear for these.

These courses will start at the very beginning (if you have absolutely no experience) and run all the way through to your advanced techniques (for those with experience).

The courses will cover:

  • Gear choices 
  • Basic hunting tactics
  • How to be a great dive buddy
  • Target species and fish Identification
  • How to choose where to dive
  • Landing a fish once it's been shot
  • How to quickly dispatch a fish once it's been shot
  • Filleting a fish & fish storage/preparation 
  • Lobster grabbing
  • Advanced hunting tactics 
  • Hunting pelagic fish

If these do not interest you however, there is no pressure to attend these! There will also be freediving workshops onboard which you can choose to attend! 

Spearfishing

Weather permitting, we will be heading out to the outer Great Barrier Reef for a full day of spearfishing. Our highly trained instructors will be in the water with you, giving you demonstrations, tips and helping to keep you safe. We'll also be filming as many of your dives as we can, so you have some long lasting memories! 

Freediving

For those who aren't interested in spearfishing, you will have a full day of exploring all of the incredible coral reefs, get guided through some awesome coral swim throughs and see an incredible array of marine life. If you are looking to get those epic underwater shots of yourself, just team up with your dive buddy or ask our instructors and they will be more than happy to help!

Freediving Workshops

Our instructors will be running breathing, relaxation and equalising workshops throughout the trip!
