Join us for a day of depth training and fun diving! We will charter a boat from Manta SCUBA Centre on North Stradbroke and head out from there to do a depth training session, followed by a fun dive with marine life. Dive sites will depend on sea conditions on the day, but we hope to do the depth training in 20-40m deep water (dependent on location). The depth training will include use of float and line that will be set-up for you by a qualified freediving instructor. For the fun dive, we will go to one of our favourite dive spots to give you the best possible marine life encounters. Both the training session and fun session will be supervised in-water at all times by an experienced freediving instructor.
Time: Meet at 6:45am, return to shore by 11am.
