Dive deeper, Stay down longer, Live to dive another day. Get training with the best and reach your full potential


This year I’ve taken the time in between running these adventures around the world hunting World Records and taking people on the trip of their lives, to actually train and teach the basis of Freediving to bring divers even closer to their full potential.

I’ve put together a course schedule for the coming months and can say it has been an absolute blast seeing people reach their goals and become better divers and hunters through this personalized Freediving training.

Whether you are diving 10 ft or 100 ft I’ll help you go deeper, stay down longer, and become more comfortable and a more lethal with the tips and techniques from Freedive Instructors International.  As a 12 time Spearfishing World Record Holder and having visited more than 80 countries in my travels, I can put together the tips and techniques to have you be a better diver in your own waters or wherever you dream of diving.

If your family goes on one trip a year and are snorkeling this is a great class to have so that everyone dives safely and can be more in tune with the underwater environment.

If you are an experienced Hunter and want to find out how to spear a specific fish in your home waters we will focus your training to get your body in tune for the type of diving you will be doing there.

    Hey Cameron,

    I’m planning to do the course here at Dominican Republic, I want to know the prices for the course, and the duration please, asap.

  2. The FII course is legit! I am no diving stud by any means having learned from a few friends and watching YouTube, but going through the FII course has opened my eyes to the capabilities we all have. Living in Homestead, FL, I did my course from an instructor/dive shop in Miami. Mother nature held us back from finishing the open water 20m dive, but I’m heading back in October to finish the deal. We all can’t be the 9 fingered fish killer, but we can learn to push our limits safely and FII does that.
    It was good to meet you and shake your left hand in the Gables Saturday, Cam. Keep doing what you do and recording it. It gives a guy like me who can’t get on the water enough something to daydream about.

  3. The course is two days and is $475 per person

  5. Daniel we just added two course Dec 14/15 and Dec 17/18 to the schedule hope you can make those!

    Hey Cameron,

    I’m planning a trip to the Dominican Republic. Are there any free diving spots right off shore?

  7. There are plenty of places to dive from shore out side of the parks but the areas have mostly been hit hard near the cities. The further from civilization you go the better!
