Spearfishing is a selective & sustainable method of fishing that has been used around the world for millennia, with early civilisations using sharpened sticks in local rivers and streams, though the sport has moved on a bit since then!

Dive under, explore a new playground, and experience first-hand why this sport is growing so rapidly.

We offer courses to help you gain a better understanding of breathing techniques, knowledge on maintaining and setting up your equipment, and the skills you need to hunt efficiently and safely.

Spearfishing Basics Includes:
– Equipment set up & choice
– Loading a speargun
– Unloading a speargun
– Shooting a speargun
– Equipment care
– Buddy system procedures & rescue techniques
– Breathing techniques
– Breathing exercises
– Weight safety & finning form
– Equalisation methods

A good freediver is what makes a successful spearfisher. If you’d like to give it a go without any commitment, we’d recommend signing up to a Try Freediving course which would lead on nicely to Spearfishing Basics. We also offer Advanced Spearfishing and Charter Trips.
