About Me

Learn to freedive in Melbourne with me, Marlon Quinn, Master Freediving Instructor.

I’ve been teaching freediving since 2014 across Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia and have hundreds of students that now enjoy the underwater world freely and easily on one beautiful breath.

Freediving is a moving peacefulness, immersed underwater within the dreamy environment hidden under the sea surface. I learned to freedive with the World’s best, including Umberto Pelizzari and Stavros Kastrinakis.

Bringing together the vast knowledge banks of AIDA, Apnea Academy and PADI Freediving education systems, it is my aim to open your being to find calm and ease whilst swimming freely closer to Nature in the big blue of the sea.
