Club meeting is NOT this week

Hi all,

Just an FYI – our calendar had the incorrect date listed for this months club meeting. The calendar incorrectly listed this months meeting as being this Wednesday (tomorrow).

Our club meeting is in fact next Wednesday, 6:30pm, at the Sir Charles Hotham hotel. Apologies for the confusion.

All are welcome at the club meetings, member or not, so drop in for a meal, a drink, and a chat about diving on a single breath.


The weather gods frown upon us

This weeks social dive, and the potentially rescheduled 1st photofishing competition, will not be happening this weekend, due to the particularly poor conditions forecast for this weekend.



1st Photofishing comp set to be postponed (again)

With this weekends forecast being almost as bad as last weekend, the committee have regrettably decided to once again postpone the scheduled Photofishing comp.

We’ll keep an eye on conditions over the coming week, with the vague hope of being able to call the comp on for next weekend.

Watch this space.


The Geelong Freedivers Inc. Introduction to Spearfishing handbook is (finally) here!

The wait is over! The official “Geelong Freedivers Inc. Introduction to Spearfishing  Student Handbook” is finally rolling off the (virtual) press!

Its available on our website in PDF format for only 12 dollars!!!

This is a first “alpha” release, is a constant work in progress, and has yet to go through any form of formal / professional editing or publishing, but this is reflected in the price ($12!).

This document was put together to accompany our up-and-coming “Geelong Freedivers Inc. Introduction to Spearfishing” practical course, aimed at beginner spearfisherman looking to get into the sport, or novice spearfisherman looking to expand their knowledge. The course itself is also a work in progress, and more details on this are to come.

If you have any feedback or general suggestions, please send your feedback to


Photofishing Competition Series – 1st event in two weeks!

The first event in the Geelong Freedivers Inc. Photofishing Competition Series is scheduled for October the 21st  (Next weekend!).

Specific time and location will be announced on the Thursday prior to the event in the news section of the GFD website.

We will try and hold the comp at one of the many marine parks or sanctuaries along the Surf Coast, but due to inclement weather we might be forced to move the location to within Port Phillip.
