Freediving Courses & Certifications!
Molchanovs Wave 1 | Wave 2
During the first day and a half 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. If you havn't completed any freediving education, but can comfortably dive to 20 metres, you can also complete your Wave 2 course.
Wave 1 - up to 20 metres deep max
Wave 2 - up to 30 metres deep max
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 probably with drinks in hand).
These courses will start at the very beginning (if you have absolutely no experience) and run all the way through to your advanced techniques and deep spearfishing (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
- Deep Spearfishing
- Spearfishing in current
These are totally optional for you to attend.
