Your experience

Freediving at the HMAS Mooloolaba is an exhilarating experience that offers unparalleled opportunities for divers of all levels. This former 133m navy warship has been transformed into an artificial reef, providing a unique habitat for a diverse range of marine life. As you descend into the depths, you’ll be surrounded by schools of colourful fish, majestic rays, and even the occasional turtle.

The HMAS Mooloolaba is an ideal training ground for freediving. Its location in calm waters with good visibility means that you’ll be able to practise your techniques in a safe and controlled environment. The structure of the ship also provides a variety of depths and obstacles to challenge your abilities, from swimming through tight spaces to navigating the various levels of the ship.

If you are completing your course, or depth training, our experienced instructors are on hand to guide you through the learning process so you can develop the skills and confidence necessary to push your limits and explore the underwater world in a whole new way. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced diver, learning to freedive at the HMAS Mooloolaba is an unforgettable experience that will leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.

Don’t miss the opportunity to explore this truly amazing location and take the first step towards becoming a certified freediver.
