YOUR ADVENTURE

Join us for a 5 day Kilsby Sinkhole freediving course retreat through South Australia’s picturesque Limestone Coast. On this trip, we will be exploring some of the most unique and pristine diving locations in the Southern Hemisphere – Kilsby Sinkhole, Ewens Ponds, The Little Blue Lake and the stunning coastline around Port Macdonnell.

The world famous Kilsby Sinkhole is an inconspicuous freediving mecca, nestled in the middle of a working sheep farm in South Australia. A unique geological structure formed over millions of years, the sinkhole offers crystal clear visibility and depths of 25m, making it the perfect location to begin, or continue, your freediving journey.

As well as Kilsby Sinkhole, we will be visiting the pristine ponds that make this place world famous. These sites offer incredible water clarity, otherworldly underwater landscapes and an abundance of unique plant and aquatic life, unseen elsewhere – the perfect place to work on your underwater photography skills.
