Welcome to the webpage of Geelong Freedivers Inc. We are an AUF (Australian Underwater Federation) affiliated Spearfishing (and Freediving) club formed, in 2015, based in Geelong, the Bellarine Penninsula, and the Surf Coast.
Monthly Club Meetings
We hold a monthly club meeting on the second Wednesday of each month at the Sir Charles Hotham hotel in Geelong (usually in the back function room). Meeting kicks off at 6:30pm (though the committee arrives a bit earlier to discuss committee matters).
Club meetings are a good way to meet and socialise with fellow club members, get information for and discuss up coming club events, and keep up to date with club and general spearfishing news.
Meetings are open to members and non-members alike, so even if you arent in the club, feel free to drop in and say hello.
Club Spearfishing Championship
Geelong Freedivers Inc. offers a veriaty of competition options. We hold a year long spearfishing challenge for members called the “Club Spearfishing Championship“. This comp allows members to enter fish that they have captured throughout the course of their normal diving to be scored against the fish captured by other club members.
Surf Coast Cup
We also have a series of 3x single day spearfishing competitions collectively called the “Surf Coast Cup“. This competition format consists of one “shore based” competition, one “Boat” competition, and one “Pole spear” only comp.
We also run a series of Underwater Photography competitions, and a finswimming comp for members. Contact us for more information.
Geelong Freedivers Inc. holds a weekly pool training session at Geelong Collage Recreation Centre. Pool training is one of the more frequent club activities, and allows members to work on their dive form and technique under the guidance of qualified snorkelling instructors, or as a way to work on their own diving fitness.
We hold a monthly social dive on the first Sunday of each month (weather depending) for all members. Social dives are a good way to meet fellow club members, find dive buddies, test out new gear, seek advice, and best of all, get in the water!
Gourmet Barbecues by the Beach
After each of our in-water club events, we hold a barbecue! Even if you dont dive, members (and non members!) are welcome to come on down post event for a bite to eat and listen to the debrief on the days dive.
Club Camping Trips
We try and hold a club trip once a year to various locations in and out of the state.
