4. Crewhouse

5. Lysekil town

6. Archipelago

7. Torseröd, depths can be found but there can de a small irritating current.

8. Clearer water. 30 meters in the bay by the buoy. More UW-nature far out on the cliffs but only some 20 meters depth.

9. This is a really deep place protected from N-winds. Subject to current (up to 1 knot)

Training freediving around Lysekil/Gullmaren

The most effecient way is to join an excursion via "fridykning.se" - excursions. This gives you depth, lines, weights and no swimming.

Another option is to contact GAS - Gothenburg freediving association and see if they are heading out somewhere.

Or find a divesite yourself. Gullmaren is deep, but there is often a current.

Note that it is possible to drive/walk to Gåseklåvan #1 top map (famous for its depth of 65 meters only 15 meters away from a cliff). This is also the competition site.

Until recently it was believed that one of Swedens best spots for freediving only could be reached by boat. But there is a small dirtroad followed by a walk and a small climb over the cliffs. Once there you have a 40 meter swim to the wall. A sheer drop down to over 65 meters it is believed. A few strokes out it could be as much as 90. The wall is somewhat protected from the SW winds, but any waves will find its way round the corner. It is somewhat tricky to get in for the less vigilante but once in it is one of the best freedives to be had in Sweden. Usually there is a thermocline some 10 meters which gives less visibility (3-4 meters) but down below usually over 10 meters. Light stretches far down.
