Learn to Freedive – Port Macquarie / South West Rocks

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, 8:00am – 3:30pm
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, 8am – 3pm (est.)
Open water Freediving session
During the day you will complete several dives and have the chance to experience everything you learned in the pool and in the class room hands-on. During this course we will do a boat dive from South West Rocks, exploring the beautiful dive site at Fish Rock.

Extra cost for the boat $50 per person.

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 have 13 years experience in freediving and I’m a competitive freediver as well.

$550 + $50 boat
