(SOLD OUT) FADER X Morning Mindfuless Seal Rocks Retreat July 2023

What's included?

We have teamed up with Morning Mindfulness, Kendall Rose Photo and Selkie Freediver to bring you the ultimate Seal Rocks retreat!

Come with us from Friday the 28th to Sunday the 30th of July for an epic and wholesome long weekend away.

Experience Seal Rocks like you have never seen it before! 

Despite being a little colder, July is one of the best months for diving at Seal Rocks. The water is cooler but significantly clearer, with visibility surpassing 20m most of the time! July is also peak season for our friendly locals, the grey nurse sharks (hundreds of them), who often swim right into the shoreline as it is usually not as busy.

We have also seen and swam with whales, seals and orcas in the bay during the cooler months, as well as our favourite gummy friends, the local Port Jackson sharks who make their return during July. Numerous species of dolphins, turtles and rays are almost guaranteed all year round!

You really need at least 2 days to have the full experience that Seal Rocks has to offer. Our certified freedivers (who know the area like the back of their hand) will guide you and are excited to show you what they see on a weekly basis! 

Everyone is welcome!

Whether you are an experienced freediver, have done a little snorkelling, or have no experience at all. We encourage you to come and give it all a go. We guarantee you will fall in love with it!
