About Vancouver Apneist Club

Freediving, or breath hold diving, is a sport that is becoming increasingly popular all over the world.

The Vancouver Apneist Club is largely made up of a group of freedivers that reside in and around Vancouver. The purpose of the club is to host competitions, encourage people to train safely together, offer support and mentorship within our ranks and, of course, to enjoy the exhilarating sport of freediving!

Through our e-groups we are able to organize pool and ocean training sessions and plan recreational outings to local dive sites. We now have some international members as well that are part of our on-line community.

We always welcome new members to become part of our club.

Please arrive a few minutes early.
If you have fins, mask or goggles or wetsuit then please bring them,
but don't buy them yet if you don't have them.

Mayne Island Eelgrass Survey

2013/07/20
2013/07/21

The Vancouver Apneist Club will be surveying the eelgrass beds at Gallagher Bay on the July 20/21 weekend. This will be our third survey of this area so we should be starting to see some trends (if there are any) this time around. The folks on Mayne Island always treat us well and its a great way for beginner and advanced freedivers alike to contribute their skills to science. We're looking for four to six freedivers to help with this survey.
