3 Days…US$ 325 

Price includes:
  • Full equipment rental.
Extra costs:

Course Overview:

First students learn the basics of freediving. This includes breathing techniques and the physiology involved with holding your breath for longer. We also cover rescue skills and safety considerations, practicing energetically efficient movement  and hydrodynamic body alignment.

After mastering how to reach depth with as little effort as possible, we introduce the knowledge, skills and equipment involved with finding and catching fish. This includes where to find different fish species, hunting styles, gun types, rigging options, stealth techniques, how to kill a fish, shooting/reloading a gun, along with points on ethics and sustainability. 

The freediving and spearfishing course includes all theory and practical skills required to pass the PADI Freediver course and gain level 1 certification. After completing this course you can join a Spearfishing boat trip and hunt in some of our best known fishing spots.

This course is for those with no previous experience. If you are already a certified and confident freediver, you may want to take the shorter one day Spearfishing intro course.
