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. Each participant must be a certified freediver (proof of certification will need to be shown prior to departure), have dived with us previously, and need to be medically fit to freedive.


Do you need the water taxi from Cleveland to Dunwich and return?

Only people who have previously done depth training with Encounter Freediving can join this depth training session.

Please carefully read our COVID19 information
