Two Day Spearfishing Course
BSA Approved!

Taught by one of our AIDA freediving instructors who are also experienced spearfishermen, you will learn how to dive deeper, stay there longer and ultimately… catch more fish!

Designed for either new divers looking to get in to the sport or for more advanced spearos looking to improve their safety and bottom time.

All the diving will take place in the diverse and exciting waters of Cornwall or west Wales, where we will take you out to proper spearfishing marks whilst you do your dive training

Course Details

The course costs £270 and includes AIDA 1* freediving certification, water, boat hire and all equipment.

This course lasts two days and teaches spearfishing/freediving safety, hunting techniques, freediving techniques, pool training (all with the spearos very specific needs in mind) and could leave you with an AIDA 1* freediving qualification (assuming you make the grade!).

You will discover how to locate and catch Lobsters and Crabs, learning the tell tale signs of their presence and how to pick them up without getting pinched. You will be taught how to operate a speargun safely and how to hunt sustainable fish choices and what shellfish and seaweeds you can eat so you always come home with something for the pot.

We don’t cut corners… On the first day we concentrate on confined water breath-hold techniques in a heated indoor pool, relaxation, underwater efficiency. We then cover hand foraging, gun rigging, gun handling and shooting technique. Your instructor will go through what fish you can catch, where to catch them and how to ensure you dispatch them cleanly and ethically.

On the second day we head out to an exciting spot somewhere on the Cornish or Welsh coast (Cornwall courses are with a boat if conditions are suitable). During the training you will use quality equipment and will have the opportunity to use your breath-hold to its fullest, with your instructor following you and giving you additional instructions as you go. You will have the chance to use a polespear as well as guns, so you can discover what works best for you.
