Our Programs

Join us for a FREE freediving spearfishing safety program in your area!

To combat the rise of freediving and spearfishing related deaths, FreediveSafe! launched a community initiative to ensure everyone has access to essential freediving training.

Our goal is to ensure that every diver returns home safely and our programs are open to freedivers, spearfishers, watermen and waterwomen of all skill levels. Whether you have been spearfishing with your family for decades, or you’ve recently discovered the sport of freediving, if you hold your breath and swim underwater, you are invited to join our FREE public training made possible by our donors and volunteers.

The training we provide is proven to save lives, allowing us all to enjoy the freediving/spearfishing lifestyle responsibly.
