Freediving courses

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.
