The level 1 freediving course was nothing short of incredible. If you are looking to start freediving then I can’t recommend these guys more.Special thanks to Chloe, Brian and Pedro for being excellent instructors. They were all well-humoured, professional and patient. They walked us through every step, helping us to complete safe dives and feel relaxed in what we were doing.Everyone I met on the course was lovely and to top it all off we saw dolphins and whales, and even hear the whales singing whilst diving.Another special thanks to Captain Harry and Forrest, the lion dog.Thanks for a great two days, I will be back for more.

Jenna and Matt are great instructors who communicate their passion of freediving safely, with great patience, very professionally but fun as well.I Highly recommended oceansense for your freediving experience. And if you get a chance do a retreat. I did the amed retreat and it was awesome, fun, safe, challenging, educational and i made some great friends and some amazing personal achievements. DO IT with OCEANSENSE!!

I attended their Bali Amed retreat and everyone was amazing. I had sinus issues while diving and even though I couldn’t fully participate in all the dives everyone was super nice and informative with what was going on in my body. All the instructors made me feel at ease and still made my time with them fun and enjoyable. They have a wealth of knowledge and I was really impressed with how they coached both new and experienced divers to progress and achieve their goals. Would definitely recommend anything the ocean sense team has to offer.

Thank you thank you for such a magic freediving retreat in Amed with such a beautiful bunch of humans, for your presence, your wisdom, your warmth, your encouragement, your energy and light. Thank you for igniting a flame within, harbouring this feeling of aliveness and deeper connection to the ocean. The Oceansense crew is so kind, knowledgeable and helpful in guiding you on your freediving journey wherever you are from amateur to expertise. I highly recommend any of their offerings, you’ll have a blast! Much love guys!

Thank you OceanSense! Freedivers, if you are looking for Molchanvos instructors in Qld then look no further. Matt, Jenna & Gonzalo are beautiful people and quality instructors. Also, when they are out of town holding retreats you can confidently rely on Chloe & Bryan the hold the fort!

Love the OceanSense team! They are calm, professional, friendly, and adapt their training to the needs of each student. I've gone from struggling with equalising, to getting to crazy depths (30+ metres) and it's all thanks to the patience and passion of this team!

I was pointed towards Ocean Sense through word of mouth. Now after completing a retreat with them I can highly recommend them myself. The crew (Jenna, Matt and Gonzalo) are very knowledgeable, passing on many useful Freediving tips and tricks and make you feel comfortable, safe and at ease in the water. I can’t thank the team enough for a wonderful experience!

“You don’t know what you don’t know” wow, I've been in and around ocean activities all my life and this L1 coarse opened my eyes and put a lot of fineness and more importantly a lot of valuable safety components into my dive routine.I can’t thank Jenna and Matt enough.

I had the opportunity to complete my level 1 freediving certification with Jenna. Jenna is very knowledgeable, patient, and a great communicator. She’s really a pleasure to work with and a great personality. I would highly recommend training with Ocean Sense and Jenna in particular.

Very informative course! As a spear fisherman we probably aren’t as aware of recovery and the appropriate techniques to conserve oxygen compared to Freedive where it is a lot more regulated. Being able to pick up on small changes to improve breath hold time as well as comfortability whilst diving was well worth completing this course. Highly recommend it even if you are a seasoned spearo.

I’ve been on two retreats now with these incredible instructors. The first was in Amed -Bali and it was amazing! Highly recommend!This was with Matt, Jenna and Gonzalo - all instructors are fabulous!The second is one I just finished up in Lake Barrine. I’ve been wanting to focus more on progressing my diving and getting comfortable with going deeper. The Oceansense team set up the space so brilliantly; from meeting everyone the night before, preparing us with exercises before we go into the water and then when we were in the water, starting off slow and watching our techniques. By the end of the last day, I was diving comfortably to depths that I used to struggle to get to.They really care about your small wins and their passion for their job really shines.Thankyou so much Matt and Jenna for sharing your knowledge. And Thankyou Lisa as well!Definitely recommend the wonderful Oceansense Team 🌟💜

I did a freediving depth camp and wave3 course with oceansense freediving. I haven’t been freediving for a while and was not so sure how it goes. Matt and Jenna made me feel really relaxed with my dives, they were really good instructors, so it was easy to take all the new information in and to the practice. I definitely got so much to take with me to my freediving journey. 😊
