About The Host

Matt & Gonzalo | Founders OceanSense Freediving

Matt & Gonzalo | Founders OceanSense Freediving

Now running weekly courses in Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Airlie Beach and monthly courses in Noosa, Brisbane and Port Douglas, OceanSense was born out of the desire to establish a new and different experience to those wanting to start their journey into Freediving or continue their journey. Drawing from their own journey, personal struggles and experiences, OceanSense instructors are passionate about teaching Freediving to change and benefit the lives of others.​

Founded and run by Gonzalo and Matt, OceanSense holds its core value in delivering personal and proper tuition. This is why we purposely deliver a 4:1 student per instructor ratio instead of 8:1 used in other systems.  This ensures that every student is given the attention needed to fully master the skills needed to become a safe and confident Freediver. They offer a service that truly sets a new benchmark for Freediving tuition.

Come enjoy and be part of the interaction between these two, loaded with laughs, fun times, sharing their knowledge and safety ways.
