Learn proper and safe Freediving Techniques from a PFI Professional in the 'PFI Freediver' course.

Combine those skills and learn about local marine life, harvesting rules and regulations, risk management and valuable techniques and skillsets (including band-powered device handling) in Bottom Dweller's 'Freedive-Harvesting Course'.

Upon completing this course package you’ll end your Tide to Table Experience on the final day with a Boat Charter Freedive-Harvesting Adventure guided by Bottom Dwellers Freediving. As a guided group you’ll set out to harvest in the local waters surrounding Tofino where you’ll return that afternoon to have the incredible staff at the 1909 Kitchen prepare and serve you your catch and harvest over a final group dinner at Tofino Resort and Marina.
