Get Involved

Perpetuate the spirit generational responsibility by participating in a FreediveSafe! program.


While our team of professional, certified freediving instructors teach the FreediveSafe! programs, there are several other areas that you can volunteer and assist in for the success of FreediveSafe!. This includes site set up, student check in, handing out t-shirts, freediving equipment, transportation for participants to and from the training location, and site pack up.


Donate to our cause to give more people access to our FREE, lifesaving training. Every spearfisherman, freediver, waterman and waterwomen this safety program reaches makes a difference to our community.

Join us in preventing freediving and spearfishing deaths in our ocean communities.


FreediveSafe! events are open to all freedivers or spearfisherman. If you  hold your breath and swim underwater, you are invited to join our program! These are free programs to the public paid for by donations. We provide formal freediving safety training to everyone. Our team of  professional, highly trained, certified freediving instructors with Freediving Instructors International (F.I.I.) lead our programs and ensure all participants receive the highest level of freediving safety training.

All participants must pre-register for FreediveSafe! programs. We are currently hosting programs on all Hawaiian Islands and expanding our events to the mainland.

FII Basic Freediving Safety program is conducted over four hours with a minimum of six participants.  The curricular includes a two hour freediving safety presentation and two hours of confined water practical training.  Lunch is provided to our participants.  We provide masks, snorkels and fins for the practical training but if you have your own please bring them.  Minimum age is 12-years-old and older.
