We’ve been on the search for the best freediving and spearfishing locations on the planet, and we’re pretty sure we’ve found one of them.

Located at the stunning tropical town of Savusavu in Fiji, we’re so thrilled to bring our third trip to Fiji to life …but this time, it’s a little different.

We’re partnering with Liquidstate Freediving-  Fiji’s longest running and leading freediving school. In collaboration with them, we will bring you unmatched local knowledge, epic dive spots, highly experienced instructors/ spearfishing guides, professional photographers and ultimately… THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME.

Some of the reasons we believe this is the best place to freedive and spearfish:
- Crystal clear water with 30m + visibility
- Warm ocean temperatures (28+ degrees celsius)
- Offshore dive sites free from swell, waves and current
- World class coral reefs rated as some of the best in the world by Jean Michel Cousteau (son of diving pioneer Jacques Cousteau and world famous conservationist)
- The very likely potential to see large pelagic fish, whales and sharks
- Deep drop offs, coral canyons and swim throughs
- Friendly locals 
Whether you are totally fresh at freediving, or a seasoned spearo/freediver, we believe we’ve created a trip that caters to all levels of water-people. If Spearfishing isn’t you’re thing- no worries! There will be just as many options for you throughout the whole trip.
Here’s everything you need to know about the trip!


Freediving Courses 
3 days of the trip will involve Molchanovs Freediving theory and line diving sessions. You will have the opportunity to pick our brains about anything freediving in or out of the water.
We like to spread out our freediving theory and dive sessions over the week so that you aren’t overwhelmed by stacks of information, learn as much as possible, and have the best possible opportunity to improve your skills and ocean comfort.
The workshops and theory sessions will be tailored to every skill level and type of diver. These are not mandatory and you don’t have to attend any of these to go out freediving.

Spearfishing Workshops

During the afternoons, we will be running Beginner & Advanced Spearfishing Workshops. They will be run by our instructors Jordan and Ellie who have over 18 years combined experience spearfishing and have shot some incredible fish in this time!

Beginner Workshops
These workshops will cover the basics of hunting tactics, gear, target species, basically everything you need to get started! Our instructors, who are experienced spearos, will be there with you in the water helping you out and making sure you’re doing everything safely!
 Advanced  (Advanced and Deep Spearfishing)
These workshops will go into different hunting styles, gear and speargun rigging, certain fish behaviours, deep spearfishing tactics, advanced buddying.

Spearfishing
Fiji is known for its amazing reefs, incredible visibility, deep drop offs, and big fish! If you type ’Spearfishing Fiji’ into your Youtube search bar you will be bombarded with videos of Dogtooth Tuna, Spanish Macklerel, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, Trevally and many more highly sought after species. The outer reefs are where it's at, and we’ll be spending 2 full day trips (3 if you’re a keen bean) out to incredible dive sites in search of these fish!

Some of these reefs drop down from 3m to 40m+ and span for hundreds of metres. There will be options for every level of spearo, and you will be able to spearfish to your hearts content on these days. For those of you wanting to target the bigger fish, our spearfishing guides will be there to help. If you’re completely new to spearfishing or just getting into it, don’t worry- we’ve got you covered and will give you all the techniques and tools so you can safely hunt underwater.

Freediving
If spearfishing or isn't your jam- no problem at all! You will be able to freedive in all of these magic spots instead and have an experienced instructor with you on all the boat trips. You can choose to explore the incredible coral reefs, improve your diving, check out the local wildlife and get some awesome shots in the crystal clear water.
