Marine Foraging Course

This 1 day course will teach you the fundamentals of underwater foraging.

Course Details

Course costs £100 per person and is conducted over one weekday here in Cornwall (see calendar) or for groups on request.

Taught by our expert team of freedivers and overseen by author of ‘Underwater foraging – freediving for food’  Ian Donald you will discover the vast array of sustainable foods that can be gathered from the foreshore and from under the waves, all using freediving skills.

There are no spearguns used in this course, it is all about hand gathering using Freediving. Get introduced to the basic Freediving techniques that will enable you to collect food from under the sea.

Look for edible seaweeds, shoreline plants and herbs, molluscs and crustaceans. Learn how to find them, collect them, prepare them and use them.

More than any of our other courses this can bend to the will of the weather as it doesn’t have to include diving (although it normally does) if the weather is terrible .
