Freediving With Basking Sharks Trip: An Amazing Opportunity to Dive with Basking Sharks

Ever thought about Freediving with Basking Sharks? We are beyond excited to be offering a trip to swim and freedive with basking sharks in the gorgeous location of Penzance, Cornwall. Visiting the area in June means we are going to be there at the optimum time to see these magnificent creatures. But even though they are going to be the star attraction, we will still have plenty of other exciting marine life to look out for such as pods of bottlenose dolphins, seals, fin whales, pilot whales, leatherback turtles and sunfish.

We have chartered a boat for the whole day, so there will be plenty of opportunities for swimming and/or freediving with Basking Sharks. We would offer the chance of two shorter dives or one longer one.


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

Please note. If the trip has to be cancelled due to bad weather or any other circumstance, Go Freediving will refund £179 to club members and £209 to non members. Please read the cancellation document for more details before you book on.
