We are a non for profit club with the aim of training regularly while giving each other tips and assistance, we don’t provide one-on one coaching although plan on organizing coaching clinics and fun club events for members & family. Here is a link to our Constitution if you would like to know more about how our club operates as we like to be open and transparent and are happy for constructive feedback.
Note: If you are just passing through the area and want to give freediving a go while on holiday, we recommend approaching a local dive shop or commercial course provider (i.e: AIDA or Padi Freediving) who might cater to your needs better. Similarly while most of us in the club enjoy spearfishing by default, if all this training doesn’t sound like you and all you want to do is shoot fish all day, we don’t blame you, and highly recommend joining the local Port Valley Spearfishing Club, of which some of us are also members.
Payments can be made by direct deposit into the club account which will be sent to you on completion of the online membership form.
