#freediving

I initially uploaded a version of this video on our older channel. I was planning to put one together for a photo and video competition held a week before but we ended up going elsewhere on the day. This is what I came up with a week later. It's rather a shame we didn't get to enter it because it's one of our better freediving videos and I think we would have fared rather well.

It's shot under the old Rapid Bay Jetty and in particular focuses on the end of it where the marine life is most abundant. It's regarded as one of South Australia's best jetty dives.

The Star of Greece is a well known historic ship wreck at Port Willunga, South Australia. It's a good little dive just 200 metres swim from the shore. The wreckage is broken up and spread over a large area. In low tide part of it sticks above the water. The history of how the ship came to be wrecked and the numerous fatalities that resulted can be read about at the South Australian Maritime Museum. Some parts of the ship that were salvaged can also be seen there. Overlooking the bay is the Star of Greece Restaurant which is named after the ship which is worth a visit too.

Second Valley is about an hour and a half drive south of the Adelaide CBD. It's quite a well known location for fishing and scuba diving. When I used to be a diving instructor we used to use it for training as it's easy to get in and out and do skills close to the jetty. However on a flat dive you can also explore a series of shallow water filled caverns to the south along the coast. They are pretty exposed so this is not the place to go when there is any sort of swell but it can be a really interesting dive. I thought it would also make a pretty good site for freediving so one day I went and explored them without the tank. This was a few years ago and was one of my earlier videos that I've re-edited for this channel.

This is a re-badged version of the first freediving video I made back in 2013. It is mainly done around the end of the Port Noarlunga Jetty. As with any old video there are definately a few things I'd do differently now however there are a few shots that still hold up to some of my more recent videos.

This jetty featured on one of the other videos on this channel as seen from the air. This time it's underwater.

This is one of our earlier videos that we made back in 2014. It features Piccaninnie and Ewens Ponds which are both located in Mount Gambier, South Australia. Both are stunning freshwater sites which can be snorkelled or scuba dived, although with Piccaninnie Ponds you require the appropriate cave diving qualifications due to the overhead environments. I have videos on our other channel 'Endurance Swimmer Australia' scuba diving both sites. For this video I explored some of the areas with direct access to the surface by freediving.

If you are properly prepared and dressed, freediving guarantees a completely new sensation and experience that cannot be obtained anywhere else. The coolest work on yourself, which subsequently brings an absolute thrill ... from the fact that you go down into the blue abyss, alone with yourself, and at the same time you are not afraid!

If you visit the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia a trip to Baird Bay to swim with the Dolphins and Sea Lions is a once in a lifetime
opportunity. Baird Bay Ocean Eco Experience was established in 1992 and offers a tour that will enable you to do both. The staff are both very informed and friendly and will help make your tour one you don't forget. It's a fantastic experience that I highly recommend.

Swim With The Tuna Port Lincoln

Swimming with tuna or in my case freediving with tuna, in large numbers is not something one gets to do every day, particularly in large numbers, so the opportunity to do this in an enclosed area whilst visiting the town of Port Lincoln on the Eyre Peninsula, South Australia was something I had to do.

There are plenty of in water attractions in Port Lincoln. One of them is appropriately called 'Swim With The Tuna' and enables you to do just that. It has been built in the same type of netted aquatic farm structures as are used throughout the Blue Fin Tuna industry in the region. It's a first rate experience, with some of the staff having significant prior experience in the Blue Fin Tuna Industry itself. It's also very reasonably priced for an adventure that lasts 3 hours. It starts with a 15 minute boat ride in a luxury catamaran out to a world class Tuna Pontoon, then put on wetsuit, mask and snorkel and in the water you go, surrounded by fish.

There are two enclosures you can swim in (one smaller one within the other) so you can experience not only the excitement of swimming amongst large blue fin tuna themselves (one of the 10 fastest species of fish in the ocean), but also a host of other aquatic life that you will find in the smaller enclosure which is equally interesting. There are also some shallow pools that you can observe and in some cases touch marine life and underwater viewing. Not content to just snorkel, I wanted a 3 dimensional experience that I could immerse myself in so as I am a qualified freediver I asked if I could freedive in the enclosures. This isn't always possible with large fins when the company has lots of customers but as there were only a handfull that day and there was plenty of room, the friendly staff obliged on this particular occasion. Whether you get to swim with the tuna on the surface or like me freedive with the tuna too, it's an exciting experience and I highly recommend it. You will also learn much about the tuna farming industry and may get to see some other aquatic life on your trip to and from the pontoon, in particular seals and whales. So for anyone passing through the area with half a day to spare, you don't need much in the way of experience, as long as you are comfortable in the water. Feel free to contact 'Swim With The Tuna' for further information.

Whilst I was getting footage for my 'Freshwater Freediving' Video, I had the misfortune to accidentally hit my head on a rocky outcrop that protruded from the side of the dive site. As a result we had to cut short our videoing and visit the local hospital so I could get stitched up! I actually was recording at the time and from the angle of the camera pointing upwards, it showed what happened (although I didn't see it with the mask I was wearing at the time - I actually avoided one rocky outcrop but in the process hit my head on the one coming out from the other side). I left this footage out of the original video but months later decided that I would put a short video together featuring that particular dive.

Rapid Bay Jetty is regarded as one of the best jetty dives in Australia. Located in South Australia it was once an industrial jetty and later used by the public. In recent years it has been closed as it is no longer considered structurally sound. It is however still accessable to scuba divers, freedivers and snorkelers and can be accessed by swimming to it from the new jetty that runs alongside it and is approximately half the old one's length. The greatest abundance of marine life is to be found at the end where the supporting pillars are more densely located in a series of columns and rows. It is a must do dive for any enthusiast who live in or visits the area.

The Star of Greece is a well known historic shipwreck located at Port Willunga, South Australia.

It is often scuba dived, freedived or snorkelled from the beach, being less than 200 metres swim from the shore. Being in only 5 metres depth it is particularly easy to thoroughly explore by freediving and on a calm day is very interesting with the wreckage spread out over a large area. At low tide part of it actually sticks above the water making it easy to find. It was sunk in a storm with numerous fatalities and the story can be read at the South Australian Maritime Museum where some parts of the ship are also on display. Nearby and overlooking Port Willunga is the Star of Greece Restaurant which is named after the ship.

Second Valley is located about an hour and a half drive from Adelaide, South Australia.

A few hundred metres south of the Second Valley Jetty are a series of ocean caverns and swim throughs which can be scuba dived or freedived during calm conditions. They are reasonably shallow at about 5 metres depth and although they are well known to experienced divers, as they are not immediately accessible they are far enough away to only be filmed occasionally. In larger swell however they should be avoided as they are exposed and hazardous.
