Our Mission

Salty Pilgrims Freediving is Nelson Bay & Newcastle's leading Freediving school, and in the last 3 years of operating has developed a large and fast-growing community of freedivers, spearfishers and more confident water people. 
Our mission is to connect people with the ocean and with themselves, and to help people to achieve things in the water they didn't know were possible. 
Freediving has changed our lives and we want it to change yours too. 
We teach Molchanovs Wave 1, Wave 2 and Wave 3 freediving courses both locally in Nelson Bay, and on our retreats in Fiji and the Gili Islands in Indonesia. 

We are dedicated to delivering the best freediving courses in Australia and overseas, and pride ourselves on the level of safety, fun and learning that students who join us on a course experience.
Our freediving and spearfishing instructors have been taught by the world's best have a combined 30+ years experience with freediving and spearfishing, and can comfortably dive to depths past 55 metres. 
We understand that everyone learns at different paces, and we are dedicated to making your freediving experience with us unforgettable and life changing.
