About The Frenchman Spearfishing Courses
The Frenchman Spearfishing (TFS) was established in 2018 and operates in the South West of England.
We aim to provide the highest level of courses for spearfishing, foraging, freediving and this summer we are opening the first and only spearfishing school in the UK.
Our training program is unique in the UK. It is a clear path to progress in your spearfishing freediving journey.
Relentless is our vessel and she is a 6 M Coded RIB. She is the perfect base to move around the coast line safely. We are a team of 2 coaches and 4 pilots.
You’re in safe hands with this team.

The team of pilots is composed of women and men who have completed their RYA powerboat courses and the necessary side courses (VHF, Sea survival, first Aid,…) to be commercially endorsed.
