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.

For this trip we have chartered a larger boat. The boat has a flushing toilet onboard and lines will be placed behind the boat for those that are more comfortable staying on the line.

Who can join the trip?

The minimum age reuirement is 14 and anyone younger than 18 must be accompanied on the trip by a parent or guardian.

A qualified Go Freediving instructor will be present at all times and anyone with a RAID Freediver qualification (or equivalent) is welcome.

This is a trip of a lifetime and not to be missed!!

Spaces fill fast for this amazing trip so please book as soon as possible. You have the option of booking now with a £150 deposit to secure your place.

Please note:

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.


Day 1 | 14th September | Day one is spent on the boat where, depending on sightings, you may dive for one longer dive or two shorter dives.

Day 2 | 15th September | Day two is optional and free and those that want to join in the fun will spend the day diving and snorkeling off the shore along the Cornwall coast.  The day will be led by an Instructor.

Where do we meet

Unit 4 Albert Pier, Penzance, TR18 2LL

Day 1 meeting time will be approximately 8am, however, time will be confirmed 24 hours before departure.

All day parking is available in the harbour car park. £8 for 24 hrs. Payable by card, cash or Just Park app.

Note: the nearby public toilets require a 20p coin.


This trip does not include accommodation. 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 you only want to do the boat trip on the Saturday you could opt to arrive on Saturday morning and leave late afternoon to save on accommodation.

Some accomodation options are:

Mount View Hotel –

Premier Inn Hotel – zance/penzance.html

Longboat –
