Learn to freedive with world leading instructor trainer Emma Farrell and her expert team

Welcome to Go Freediving, the start of an incredible journey into the underwater world. We run freediving courses, freediving holidays, a vibrant freediving club, and instructor development in the UK and all over the world and you can learn to freedive from just £75.

Freediving is the sport of apnea, diving on a single breath of air. It’s a life-changing experience and the most natural way of exploring under the waves. Learn to freedive on one of our freediving courses and you’ll improve your water confidence, take better underwater photos and redefine your limits.

What makes Go Freediving the best place to learn to freedive is our unparalleled level of experience, personal care, attention to detail and safety record. On no other freediving course in the UK will you get such a high instructor to student ratio and the benefit of decades of freediving experience from our incredible instructors. Whether you’re a first time freediver or already have freediving experience, our team will work to get the best out of your ability whilst always making it fun on your freediving course!
