Our Taster Freediving Courses will be back running in Summer!

Have you been sitting on the fence for a while now, wondering if freediving is for you? 

We offer freediving taster courses, in one of the most incredible dive sites in NSW.

Course Location: Nelson Bay.
(1 hour from Newcastle and 2.5 hours from Sydney)
Start Time: 9am 
Finish Time: 2pm

Maximum group number: 6

The one-day course is perfect for those who have snorkelled before but have never actually dived down deeper underwater. You don’t need any experience to join this day! 

 What you will learn:
- Freediving theory covering safety, physics and physiology
- Proper equalisation for freediving
- Relaxation and breathwork for freediving
- Breath hold session
-  2-hour ocean dive session practicing freediving skills 

The maximum depth for this day is 9 metres, but your comfort is our priority, and you definitely don't have to dive this deep if you don't want to! 

Our dive site is located in a sheltered cove which is also a protected marine reserve. There are hundreds of fish to see and the occasional turtle if we're lucky!

If you love the feeling of freediving and continue on to do a certified course or trip with us, we'll take $100 off any of our future courses or trips!

Required Gear (Full Gear hire available for $40)

-Warm wetsuit (3mm long arm, long leg steamer at minimum)
-Mask & snorkel
