Recommendations: We do not encourage people to purchase a new set of freedive gear for this course as we will discuss proper freediving gear at length in class. Bring whatever you already have, whether it’s Scuba gear, freedive gear, snorkel gear, or backyard swimming pool gear. Though freedive specific gear will best suit the maximum depth allowance for this course, it is not necessary for successful completion.

  • wetsuit (3mm in NC, variable in other locations)
  • weight belt/weights
  • timing device (dive computer or cheapo watch with stopwatch)

We also recommend you bring a bathing suit, towel and writing utensil for the lectures.

Please note that boat charter fees associated with our courses are not included in the course tuition.  Fees run $100 per person at the Wilmington location.

Evolve’s COVID-19 Update and Action Plan:

Evolve Freediving plans on maintaining our regular schedule of courses and events.  As of now we have a classroom location, confined water location and open water options for all of our courses.  We will run courses live, in person, unless otherwise indicated.  There will be some small modifications to our courses to keep everyone comfortable including the addition of face masks where appropriate, social distancing where possible and hand sanitizer between sessions.

As of now, we expect a lot of great diving this summer, however, if another quarantine is mandated we will, of course, need to adjust our expectations and modality.  For any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to email [email protected]

Safe diving!
