    • What people have said about the PADI Freediver

      Had an epic time on the Freediver course. Felt super confident after the pool session before entering the ocean. Learnt a ton of things not just about free diving but also the local marine environment that I found really valuable. I didn’t think i was capable of the things we did in this course, left me with a great feeling. Kaeo is an excellent teacher, and makes the entire weekend a really enjoyable time. Get amongst it!

      This is a top notch course run by a very dedicated instructor who cares deeply about Freediving. After enrolling for his course I realized there was so much more to freediving than just standard breath holding. He is very patient especially with dynamic and static apnea techniques and runs both the confined dives as well as the open water diving. Kaeo is highly experienced and offers a very competitive rate. After I couldn’t equalize on my first course he took me out again to make sure I qualified. It’s very evident that he cares about the sport over making money and frequently follows up with me and answers all my questions even after I’ve qualified. Thank you Kaeo for being an excellent instructor! The future of freediving in Tasmania is in good hands for sure.

      The best. No matter where you are with your water-journey, you will have a great time. Absolutely zero pressure, just safe, fun and friendly! Could not recommend enough. Suitable for all levels!

      Loved this course!!!
      I learnt so much over the two days! Kaeo is an incredible instructor which made the course even that much more enjoyable! Felt super relaxed, safe and confident with Kaeo's guidance and experience. The course is invaluable. You'll not only learn and practice breathing techniques but also become more familiar with how to freedive safely for yourself and your buddy. This course is also a great opportunity to meet other like-minded people on the course that you can buddy with in the future!
