Ready Yourself for the Journey of a Lifetime

If you’re ready to put your wetsuit, mask, snorkel, and fins on, here’s what you can expect from us:

  • PADI freediving course. Beginner to master level. Level one is a two-day course that includes theory and practical. Topics covered include breathing techniques, the physiology of freediving, and dive safety. Level two is also a two-day course, but we train you to meet the requirements of a 50 m dynamic swim, a two-and-a-half-minute breath hold, a 20m depth dive, and a 10m depth rescue. In the level three course, the objective is a static apnoea of 3.5 minutes and a dynamic apnoea of 75m.
  • Molchanovs freediving course. This course, founded by Natalia Molchanov, includes four levels of ‘laps,’ conducted in a pool, or ‘waves,’ that happen in open water. 
  • Kilsby sinkhole retreat. Near Mt Gambier, SA, where you can expect 40m of clear visibility. The package includes four nights’ accommodation, two sessions at the sinkhole, and pool entry for confined water training sessions. Equipment hire and night dives are additional options.
  • Whitsunday spearfishing. Five-day and four-night trips where you stay on a maxi yacht, fully catered. Besides spearfishing, the experience includes exploring the reef and freediving in spots where you can see for up to 15m.

“I was really impressed from start to finish with the whole course, especially with the extra one-on-one attention that was provided to divers who needed help. As a result, I am now a more relaxed and safer diver, holding my breath longer and more comfortably than ever. I believe this course has something to teach everyone, new or old.” Leigh Dowel
“I recently completed the basic free diver course . Eckart is full of knowledge and wisdom and is well capable of getting that knowledge across to his students . My free diving has greatly improved by doing this course and I highly recommend doing it.”
“Amazing diver and teacher. Despite it being a group session, it really felt one-on-one with Eckart and he creates a safe community for beginners and caters to everyones needs.”
Wow! What an absolute amazing experience! I did my Level 1 course with Salt Sessions on one of their Kilsby retreats, the staff were excellent taking care of everyone at their respective level of confidence and competency. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and came away with a lifelong set of memories and a sense of accomplishment. I would highly recommend booking with the team at Salt Session!
An amazing experience. As a recreational spearo and freediver I wanted a better understanding and skills for freediving. Eckart and his team are very experienced and have all the knowledge to help everyone out. My freediving abilities are far better and safer than ever before. Cheers eckart and team. I will be back for more.
