Spearfishing Courses being available in the UK give you the chance to begin your Spearfishing Journey with a headstart. Spearfishing can be very daunting to a beginner, and it’s easy to question whether you’re doing the right thing. The purpose of Spearfishing courses are to ensure that novice divers are able to dive safely, and give them all the knowledge needed to do so. These usually consist of a mix of “classroom” based learning, and time at sea putting what you’ve learnt to the test.
There is a common misconception among beginners that Spearfishing courses and Freediving courses are the same thing. Although they will both cover similar topics such as breathing and diving techniques, Spearfishing courses are completely tailored towards the sport.
There are a few different Spearfishing courses in the UK being operated by some extremely experienced Spearos. The knowledge these guys will be able to give you is invaluable and will stick with you. You will notice that the vast majority of these courses are based on the South Coast. However, don’t let this put you off, it’ll be well worth the drive! Although I haven’t been on any of these courses, I’ll try and give as much detail where I can. But I can assure you that no matter which one you go for, you’ll be in safe hands!
