Freediving makes the delicious bounties of the ocean accessible to anyone who’s not afraid to get wet. Snorkeling and shallow diving for crabs, scallops and other shells is a rewarding challenge for beginners. Many freedivers hunt fish with spear guns, which is both challenging and exciting. It’s arguably also the most humane and sustainable way to obtain fish, when done responsibly. Trondheim fridykkerklubb runs several freediving courses at different levels every year.
