About us

Salty Pilgrims Freediving is Nelson Bay & Newcastle's leading Freediving school, and in the past 2 years of operating has developed a large and fast-growing community of freedivers and spearos!
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 both Molchanovs and Padi Freediving courses in Nelson Bay and in Fiji on our Fiji Retreats. We are dedicated to delivering the best freediving courses in Australia 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 and have a combined 20+ years experience with freediving and spearfishing so you can be assured you're in safe hands when you book a course or trip with us.
