Info Night: Whitsundays Spearfishing Retreat 6-10 August 2023
We had our info night for the upcoming Whitsundays Spearfishing Retreat with Noob Spearo and Salt Sessions! We invited a bunch of the Noob Spearo community to join us for a zoom call to find out more about the spearfishing and sailing retreat coming up in a month’s time! All your questions + all the details you need to know about the trip: when to arrive, what gear to bring, where exactly to go, what type of diving we’ll be doing, the target species we’ll be chasing and everything else you wanted to know!
If you are interested in booking your spot on the trip, click here to go to the Salt Sessions website. We can’t wait to go sailing and spearfishing with you all!
