OceanSense Freediving Reviews
Matt is caring and understanding each student to get the best results and outcomes, as I have been in the water coaching myself for over 20 years, it is nice to meet people on the same high quality standards of delivering courses.
Matt is an experienced Free-diving instructor who identifies problems, understanding them and gives step by step training exercises and solutions to get the best outcomes to an individual student.
I like to say thank you to Matt and I would absolutely recommend his courses.
Wishing him all the best wish the most spectacular dives!
Theory work was highly informative and thorough, pool work was clear and practicable, and in the ocean I felt safe and really well looked after.
There's a really strong sense of 'safety first', which is very reassuring.
After each immersion, Gonzalo was incredibly informative about what went right, what I was doing wrong and how I could refine my technique. I had some personal anxiety around the ocean dive, but the whole scenario allowed me to let go of this and complete my dive. Nothing felt rushed and each of us received the hands-on personal attention required to advance through to successful completion.
I highly recommend OceanSense and can't wait to do my advanced and the Whitsundays retreat!
I was a complete beginner but thanks to Matt and Gonzalo I can now dive 11 metres! These guys are the perfect mix of knowledge, experience, safety and fun! They have such a great way of guiding and teaching and help you feel completely at ease in the water.
If you're wanting to learn freediving from master instructors, live in a sailboat, practice yoga on deserted Islands, meet some incredible new and diverse friends, and have the best time, these guys are the ones you want to do it with😊
They don't just "tick the boxes" to get you signed off through the criteria, they also explain what is going on when you do these skills and why you are doing them. Which is something I believe every dive school should be doing. I don't just wanna pass my course, I want to learn and be a better, more knowledgeable diver, and that's exactly what you get with OceanScense. They are helpful and clear with their instructions, but above all of that, they are patient whilst working through the skills with you. They closely observed what we were doing, and give us pointers/advice so we could work on progressing that skill or technic. And this carried on even after we had completed the course, they gave us helpful tips on things we need to work on to progress our freediving skills to the next level. For me, it was them explaining to me why and how I could make my fin kicks more effective/conserving.
The guys are clearly passionate about freediving, the water, your safety, and the professionalism of their business, and it truly shows. But that doesn't mean the course isn't great fun. The whole weekend was a great laugh too. Who says you can't have heaps of fun whilst learning!? And I'm am overall extremely pleased and pleasantly surprised with what I achieved over the weekend, especially getting a 2 minute static breath hold, and diving down to 12.8m on a single breath..... something I never thought I would achieve before the course.
We have already booked our next trip with OceanScense, as well as booking our Level 2 course with them. We can't wait to get under the water with you guys again real soon.
Cheers Matt and Gonzalo! Keep doing what you're doing!
Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a great introduction to freediving or to progress their skills.
If you have the slightest interest in trying freediving these are the guys to contact.
