Spearfishing and Freediving courses

The BSA is not affiliated with any provider and does not vet or approve any third party courses, however we do recommend that our members – particularly ones new to the sport – attend a spearfishing or freediving course so that they are better prepared to dive safely.

In order to assist members with finding a course, we have compiled a list of providers. Each provider has a fantastic history of providing specialist courses in their respective fields, and come highly recommended by previous customers & current BSA members.
