Learn to freedive with the UK’s freediving experts

Welcome to Go Freediving, the start of an incredible journey into the underwater world. We run freediving courses, training sessions 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!

We are led by Freediving Instructor Trainer Emma Farrell, who is the only Freediving Instructor in the UK qualified to teach instructor courses for AIDA, RAID and SSI. One of the world’s leading freediving instructors, she has taught thousands of people how to learn to freedive as well as Terence Stamp and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. Emma has appeared numerous times on Television teaching freediving including the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 and has written the book ‘One Breath, a Reflection on Freediving.’

Learn to freedive and you’ll experience a sense of freedom under the water like nothing else. It’s an amazing way to interact with sea life, get fit, redefine your limits, travel the world and make lifelong friends.

We look forward to you joining us in the water!
