Super stoked with my static time of 3.33! Definitely couldn’t have done this without Dan’s time, wisdom, coaching, experience and expertise.
I am excited for more time spent with you guys! It’s really comfortable and cool! Thanks and in appreciation!

I don’t usually leave reviews but there’s no way I can’t say something about Freediving Central. More than just instructors who run through the motions, Dan and Evan genuinely personalize each and every experience, making you feel comfortable and confident in the water. Of course, they don’t forget the fun factor, either. My time at Freediving Central was filled with loads laughs, amazing dives, and big improvement. Can’t recommend these guys enough!!

I’ve dived a lot in my time, but never have I experienced coaching like that of Freediving central. Instructors Evan and Dan are professional and charming with expertise by the bucket load and will make a 4 minute breath hold seem like a piece of cake. Evan and Dan will have you laughing and smashing PBs at the same time… what an experience! it’s a 10/10 from me!

After much deliberation between the amass of freediving schools I discovered Freediving Central.
I found the classroom session with Dan to be highly engaging with his diving stories and also educational.
I didn’t even know I wasn’t effectively equalising and within 20mins Dan had pin pointed and corrected this with the right technique. From that moment I knew I had made the right decision to take this course. Over the weekend I never felt pressure to over exert myself with diving deep but still managed to reach depths I haven’t reached over the years. I would like to thank Dan and his team for the great experience. I will be certainly recommending his courses to anyone looking to start or further their freediving.

I am a breathing coach with a few different certifications under my belt, but freediving was on my bucket list for a while. I just want to say thank you so much to the amazing instructor Daniel, the 2 days certification was completely out of my comfort zone as I had to reprogram my brain in order to not apply any of my breathing techniques from other modalities, so during the ocean diving day I had a mix of negative thoughts caused by the uncertainty if that was my peri frontal brain talking or if was a “gut feeling”, but Daniel was so great on his approach of supporting and allow me to go on my own time and face the fear in a very safe and supportive way! I would give a 10 stars rating to these guys as instructors and as a human as well!

Started my wave 1 course with Dan Parsons last week. What a bloke! Gave us a detailed history of free diving, understanding of what physically happens to the body whilst diving, correct safety procedures, shared with us his personal experiences and knowledge he’s gained over the years. I felt completely at ease when it came time for the first breath holds, we were reassured that everything was at our own pace and to only do what we felt comfortable with. I felt Dan took the time to build solid personal connections with everyone on the course.
A wealth of knowledge, truly personable character and all around great bloke. Can not wait to continue my freediving journey with Dan and Freediving Central.
