2- Day Spearfishing Course

2- Day Spearfishing Course

Kickstart your ocean journey by getting coaching on spearfishing and freediving to bring you up levels in your spearo ability. Ideal for those with little to no experience and those who have gaps in their knowledge and skills!

During multiple dry practical and theory sessions, a pool session and multiple ocean dives, we'll cover the physiology of depth, breathholding, equalisation, handling equipment, safety protocols, and of course spearfishing skills and hunting techniques to make you a proficient underwater hunter gatherer with an expansive knowledge of how your equipment works.

It's the full PADI Freediver Course with the Freediver certification on completion of the theory and practical tests of the PADI Freediver, and then with added dry theory and ocean sessions focussing on spearfishing:

Equipment Introduction
Rigging your Speargun

Speargun Handling and Safety
Huntsman Philosophy

This course is the PADI equivalent of the AIDA Level 2 Course, Molchanov Wave 1 and the SSI Freediver, and comes with the PADI Freediver qualification.

Courses are based out of Bicheno and the Freycinet Peninsula, or Hobart and the Tasman Peninsula.
