                Here’s what some people have to say about the Adreno Melbourne Freediving courses…

                “I was really impressed from start to finish with the whole course, especially with the extra one-on-one attention that was provided to divers who needed help. As a result, I am now a more relaxed and safer diver, holding my breath longer and more comfortably than ever. I believe this course has something to teach everyone, new or old.” - Leigh Dowell 

                “Eckart's instruction, encouragement and guidance on our course was fantastic! Highly recommended” - Clementine Docherty

                “I recently completed the basic free diver course. Eckart is full of knowledge and wisdom and is well capable of getting that knowledge across to his students . My free diving has greatly improved by doing this course and I highly recommend doing it.”  - Sean Maher
                 

                “Amazing diver and teacher. Despite it being a group session, it really felt one-on-one with Eckart and he creates a safe community for beginners and caters to everyones needs.” - Thomas Tang
