Together, we can prevent freediving related deaths in our ocean communities.
Freediving and spearfishing accounted for 50 percent of all fatal ocean incidents involving Hawai’i residents between January and July 2020 (State of Hawai’i, Department of Health).
FreediveSafe! Hawai’i is a registered 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization founded in August 2020 by a team of freediving and spearfishing industry leaders to improve the safety of the spearfishing and freediving communities in Hawai’i and worldwide. As the sport continues to grow in popularity, it becomes more urgent to make this safety training accessible to everyone.
To combat the rise of freediving and spearfishing related deaths, FreediveSafe! launched a free community program to ensure everyone has access to essential freediving/spearfishing safety training. FreediveSafe! is the only freediving and spearfishing safety nonprofit organization addressing this need in our community. The training we provide is proven to save lives, allowing us to enjoy the freediving and spearfishing lifestyle responsibly.
