You can learn to freedive at mutually convenient times for small groups and even sometimes 1:1 tuition. There is then an active freedive group who train in the lake district, North Wales and the North of england ( Manchester ) to ensure steady and safe progression through the sport. You will need to be at least 18 years old to freedive with us and you will also need to complete a Medical Form which requires a doctor's signature if you have any medical problems. This sport is not recommended for anyone without a good level of fitness.

Freediving, when practised properly, is a very safe sport. However there are risks so always dive with the supervision of a QUALIFIED and competent buddy. Never hold your breath alone, even in water as shallow as your bath. Someone needs to be there who knows exactly what they are looking for and what to do in case of a blackout. A casual observer or even a lifeguard who hasn't been specifically trained in apnea would not be suitable.
