Blue Sharks Freediving Trip: The Ultimate Underwater Adventure in the UK!
Ready for the thrill of freediving with blue sharks in their natural habitat? We are delighted to be offering a Blue Sharks Freediving Trip – a weekend of freediving, snorkeling and swimming in the fantastic location of Penzance, Cornwall. The boat we have chartered has a sighting success rate over over 95%! But it’s not just the blue sharks – there is a fantastic range of marine life in the area, so you’ll have a good chance of seeing dolphin, sunfish , whale, porpoise and much more.
A qualified Go Freediving instructor will be present at all times and anyone with a RAID Freediver qualification (or equivalent) is welcome.
Spaces fill fast for this amazing trip. If you would like to pay a £100 deposit to secure your place, please contact Emma @ emma.gofreediving.co.uk
If the boat is not able to launch, the Blue Sharks Freediving Trip will still go ahead, with freediving, swimming and snorkeling taking place around the Cornish coast on both days. However, Go Freediving will refund charter fees as per terms and conditions for this trip.
A Go Freediving instructor will be present at all times and anyone with freediving experience is welcome.
The weekend involves one day on the boat where, depending on sightings, you may dive for one longer dive or two shorter dives. The second day will involve freediving, snorkeling and exploring the magnificent Cornish coast.
This year we have chosen to remove the accommodation element of the trip. This will allow divers to choose where to stay (there are plenty of B&Bs, campsites, etc in the area) and how long they intend to stay (for example if you want to make the shark trip part of a longer holiday with family, or want to arrive on Saturday and leave Sunday). We believe this offers much more flexibility.
If entering the water it is mandatory that you are totally dressed in dark colours, including hood, gloves and booties and you do so entirely at your own risk.Blue sharks are very shy creatures but they are still wild animals. The charter boat insurance only covers you when you are in the boat so if you require in-water cover you will need to arrange this privately. You will be asked to sign a waiver before departure.
