We train every week on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Freyberg Pool on Oriental Parade, starting at 6:45pm and finishing at 8:30pm. Training alternates between a statics session and two dynamics sessions. See the twitter stream on the right sidebar for upcoming training sessions.

First Time Training:

If you’d like to join us, send a message from the contact us page and one of the experienced club members will get back to you. We run introduction sessions once a month. Please fill out the form before you come down.

It costs $10 for the first four training sessions, excluding pool entry.

Casual Training:

Sometimes our club members train outside the regular sessions. If you want to join us, please contact us and we will keep you informed. These sessions could be in various pools around Wellington, at Lake Taupo, or the sea around Wellington.

Depth Training:

During the summer months the Lazy Seals train for the depth disciplines (Constant Weight, Constant Weight No Fins and Free Immersion) in Wellington Harbour.  Despite being dark, cold and murky, our training sessions are a great way for new divers to learn how to freedive on a line and push themselves to new depths, and for experienced divers to train their body and mind to the pressures of the ocean.

We try to train once a week during the summer months, on a Wednesday or Thursday evening, usually meeting a 6 at the dive site.  Of course because this is Wellington, we have to be flexible due to the weather and the depth session is called on the day by experienced club members.

Of course safety is extremely important when deep diving in the ocean so only club members who have completed a depth induction session are allowed to dive on the line with us (you have to be able to demonstrate that you are a safe diver and that you can assist in the rescue of others).

If you are interested in depth training with us, please drop us a line at and we’ll get back in touch with you.
