Immersion Freediving

Official course of Spearing Magazine


Immersion Freediving was founded in 2010 with the goal of offering the most comprehensive freediving courses on the market while teaching students to dive deeper, stay longer, and most importantly become safer. My approach is to take the skills that I have developed as a 279ft competitive free diver and modify those techniques so they are applicable to a recreational freediver or spearfisherman. I will fundamentally and permanently alter your approaching to free diving by showing you the Immersion way.

Max depth 66 feet. Average Student does a 2.5 – 3.5 minute breath hold. Average Student does a 60-foot freedive

Max depth 132 feet. Average Student does a 4 – 5 minute breath hold. Average Student does a 100 foot freedive.

I have several online freediving classes covering a variety of topics, three of the courses are free.

Immersion Freediving is happy to run private freediving private courses, training for individuals, and small groups. A private course is for 1 to 5 students.


Immersion Freediving was founded by Ted Harty in 2010. Ted has been full time instructor since 2005, and teaches freediving classes year round in Fort Lauderdale. When he’s not teaching freediving, Ted, Kathy & Sammy spend many hours cooking up amazing food one their 2 Big Green Eggs aptly named “Smokey & The Bandit”

Join the Inner Circle

The Inner Circle is currently only accessible to students of Immersion Freediving. It serves two main purposes. First to remind students of all the technical details from their course that they may have forgotten via easy to follow videos. Secondly, it allows me to cover information that is important to help students transfer the skills learned in the program to their next spearfishing trip. In the future, the inner circle will include an online video series on how to properly frenzel as well as other topics. To be notified when the inner circle will be accessible to the public sign up for the newsletter here.
