Welcome to Go Freediving, the start of an incredible journey into the underwater world.
We run freediving courses, freediving holidays, a multi-centred freediving club, and instructor development in the UK and across the globe.
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 or holiday!
Learn to freedive with Emma Farrell and some of the world’s most experienced freediving instructors.
Go Freediving is 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. She is also one of the founding members of the AIDA Education Commission, establishing the course content and structure that is now implemented worldwide. She has been teaching freediving since 2003 and no other instructor in the UK has the depth of her freediving teaching experience.

We regularly feature across all media platforms, including:
Freediving in a quarry often conjures up images of clambering over awkward rock faces and dodgy barbed wire so that you can reach an uninspiring (and often very unsafe) expanse of water that has become the local dumping ground for fly-tippers, and for some reason, shopping trolleys. Find out why approved diving certified quarries are fast gaining popularity as teaching venues for freediving.
Earlier this year we reached out and asked you to get in touch if you used freediving in the course of your work.
In this article we speak to Linda Ågren, also known as Mermaid Athiraa. Linda was born in Southern Sweden in 1989, which just so happened to be the very same year that Disney’s The Little Mermaid premiered.
The freediving skills and techniques we teach on our courses have been specifically selected to ensure a thorough, safe and enjoyable course can be experienced by everyone, regardless of previous experience, ability, age, confidence and any other miriad of variables our students may present to us.
And read some of our latest testimonials!
The course is very professionally run, it’s a great location to come and practice and it is really fun and enjoyable.
The highlight for me was being underwater with the rest of the group and as we went through the plane together I just felt a sense of belonging and friendship. I will be telling all my scuba diving friends to ditch their oxygen tanks!
Diving around the world you can tell immediately if the instructor and the equipment is up to it and Go Freediving ticks all the boxes. Go Freediving is the most professional outfit I have ever come across.
I have never done freediving before and already on the second morning I am getting down to more than 10m, so you can get to a place where you don’t think you could get to in just one day – which is pretty cool!
The student to instructor ratio is really comforting because you feel like you are getting individual tuition constantly, and the kit you provide for the course is good quality, fantastic, comfy and warm. I would recommend this course to anyone!
When I did my AIDA course it was in the sea which was turbulent, cloudy and unsettling and I think to train here at Vobster Quay, initially as a beginner has big advantages in terms of it been a stable and safe environment.
The benefits of doing the course is that it is safe. As a marine biologist it also helps me to get closer to nature. Emma is so nice and put me at ease so if someone wants to learn to freedive I can’t imagine any reason not to use Go Freediving!
