Day two around the Dorset coast: spearfishing from a boat, learn fish behavior, hunting skills and underwater foraging.
Depending the time of the year, you can dive with Dave in either of these locations:
The UK – Dave’s home base where he also trains and teaches through the summer months.
Dahab (Egypt) – the freediving mecca where all the top athletes regularly train, including Dave. Usually in October-November and March-June.
Bali (Indonesia) – a beautiful paradise island where depth and underwater life is easily reachable. Usually in December-January.
