Depth training (Gold Coast)

June 6, 2021
June 6, 2021 (All day)
Gold Coast Dive Adventures, 247 Bayview Rd, Runaway Bay.   View map


Join us for a morning of depth training off the Gold Coast! We will charter a boat from Gold Coast Dive Adventures in Runaway Bay and head out from there for some line training. Our exact training location 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 session includes use of float and line that will be set-up for you by a qualified freediving instructor. 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.


If hire fins are selected, please give foot pocket size (equivalent to European shoe size)

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

Please carefully read our COVID19 information
