Learn to Freedive – 3 days – Newcastle, Port Stephens

Are you tempted by the blue ocean depths? You came to the right place.

Freediving lets you explore space between two breaths. To learn to freedive means to learn about yourself, while exploring your body and mind – at depth. To hold the breath feels unnatural at first but with knoweldge and training, it can feel joyful, effortless and calming. Because of this, freediving can be challenging but ultimately life changing.

The Apnea Australia Stage A Freediving Course is the introduction to the purest form of diving. You’ll learn about the importance of breathing and about the physiology of a breath hold – why you fell what you feel when you hold your breath and what you can do to safely prolong this experience – on land and in the water.

You’ll learn skills that will take your freediving or spearfishing to the next level. Together, we’ll work on the flexibility of your body and mind. Maximum depth on the course – 20min


DAY 1, June 15, 8:00am – 4pm
Theory & Pool training
I’ll guide you through a pool training session so that you experience different training methods we use in freediving. We’ll complete a static CO2 table and some dynamic drills. You’ll leave this session with newly gained confidence in your skills and abilities.

DAY 2, June 16, 8am – 3pm (est.)
Beach training & Deep pool session
We’ll meet at the beach in the morning and we’ll go through some strengthening exercises and breath holding activities on the beach. In the afternoon you will complete several dives in a deep pool so you can test your newly acquired knowledge in the water.

DAY 3, June 22, 8am – 3pm (est).

2 x ocean freediving sessions either at Catherine Hill Bay or Port Stephens area

After successful completion of your open water dives you will become a Certified Freediver!

You can join your local training group, my weekly pool training sessions in Newcastle, social dives or Freediving Holidays around the world.

Dive safe and always train with a buddy.

Freediving is my passion and a way of life. I am a Guinness World Record holder and I have almost 15 years experience in freediving and I’m a competitive freediver as well.
