Deep freediving in Australia is not a myth! For the best freediving in Australia, our dive site allows us to dive to a maximum of 45 metres deep and it’s only a 20mins boat trip from shore. Freediving Gold Coast is the deepest freediving school in Australia and the only freediving school in Australia with our own purpose built boat offering you regular boat trips for regular training. This is a freediving school – you will be on the boat with only freedivers – not scuba divers. We provide depth divers the opportunity to practice the deep freediving disciplines in all the depth they need to improve for maximal performances in competition, reaching personal bests or just more enjoyable depth dives. Train safely your free immersion, constant weight with no fins, bifins or monofins. Allowable depths are commensurate with a diver’s certification level. Each Deep Dive Day typically consists of 2 sessions of deep 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. These freediving days are typically from 7am to 11am or 8am to 12:00pm departing from in front of the Southport Amateur Fishing Club (unless otherwise notified) – see FAQ.
Freediving Gold Coast welcomes freedivers from other international organisations who wish to have a DDD out with us to continue to practice, maintain and challenge their skills. The saying “if you don’t use it you lose it” very much applies to depth diving in the ocean. DDD 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).
