"Gannet Dive Company is owned by Garo who is a life long spearfisherman on the west coast. What makes Garo stand out it is he designs from scratch every single product he sells. He literally gets a piece of paper and pen and designs everything. Gannet Dive company is an innovator and which differentiates his company from most of the industry. Thanks for your support over the years Garo." - Ted Harty
A ground-up approach to design and functionality, an evolution… beautiful design, ultimate functionality, and flawless construction. Instead of looking at what the current market offers, we looked at what the ideal instrument for the task would be and set our minds to building it. The result is the brainchild of over 20 years design experience and 60 years combined dive experience.
This is the way of life we are compelled to live, for our personal health and for the health of our oceans. Sustained by the sea's wild bounty, literally, spending days in the ocean taking nothing, stalking the one animal we are searching for, zero by-catch, no unintended kill. Our take sees no processing ships, no deep freeze, no 1000 mile journey to the supermarket. It is truly organic - no farm ponds, no food pellets laced with antibiotics. Local - from the water to our table in hours, everything taken is used, just how it should be. It’s not pretty but it’s always real.

"Performance Freediving International (PFI) is the agency that I teach under. I've been a PFI instructor since 2009. PFI was founded by Kirk and his wife Mandy in 2000. PFI is the second longest running freediving agency in the world. He was teaching freediving classes a decade before anyone had even heard of a freediving class and in my opinion created the freediving educational industry. In almost every freediving class taught around the globe instructors are teaching techniques that Kirk invented over a decade ago.
I took my first class from them in 2008, and started working for them in 2009. I was lucky enough to travel around the US teaching classes with them for almost two years. Those two years definitly has had a huge impact on my success.
If my courses are sold out or don't work with your schedule or location, I recommend you look at PFI course schedule. You can see it at https://registration.performancefreediving.com" - Ted Harty
