Ocean Fun Days
Ocean Fun Days
To enrol in this course a student must:
- Be 18 years of age or older(16 years with parent or guardian consent).
- Be certified as a minimum as an AIDA 2 Freediver or equivalent level by an International organisation.
- Have completed the AIDA Medical Form.
- Have completed the Liability Release form.
- Freediving Safety Lanyard (mandatory for all dives beyond 20m).
Freediving Gold Coast is the only freediving school in Australia that offers regular boat trips to practice freediving skills in the ocean in our own freediving boat – you are not sharing the boat with scuba divers. This is the opportunity to practice the freediving disciplines of free immersion, and constant weight with no fins, bifins or monofins. Depths are commensurate with a diver’s certification level. Depending on the dive site we dive to a maximum of 40 metres. Each Ocean Fun Day typically consists of 2 sessions of freediving of approximately 90 minutes each or three hours in total. Pick up times are dependent on weather and sea conditions and are confirmed 24 hours prior to the day but these freedive days are typically from 8am to 1pm.
Freediving Gold Coast welcomes freedivers from other international organisations who wish to have a fun day out with us to continue to practice, maintain and challenge their skills. The adage of “if you don’t use it you lose it” very much applies to depth diving in the ocean. Ocean Fun Days are also ideal opportunities for students to further practice diving to meet course standards for certification (if the standards were not achieved during their enrolled course).
