Immersion Freediving

After teaching in-person freediving classes since 2009,
I’ve now shifted my focus to creating online freediving education so I can help even more people.  

We are innovators in online education

It doesn’t matter if you are a freediver, spearo, or underwater basket weaver, I have an online course that can help you reach your goal.

If you have trouble equalizing between 15-40ft, I can fix that.

If you want to learn how to reduce your risk of having a blackout, and save your buddies life, I can help with that.

If you want a training plan you can do from home so that you can freedive deeper and stay longer, I can help you with that.

To see all of my online courses, many of which are free, check out

What is provides professional-level, life-saving freediving safety information from a trusted and reliable source for free.

The website provides an extremely thorough free online safety course covering all the information you would learn if you came to one of my in-person freediving classes.

You will learn the truth about blackout, how to recognize the signs for a loss of motor control and a blackout, how to save your buddy if they had a problem, how to find out if you are wearing too much weight, and how to implement safe freediving practices.


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”

Freediving courses

Immersion Freediving was founded in 2010 to offer 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 I have developed as a 279ft competitive free diver and modify those techniques to apply to a recreational freediver or spearfisherman. I will fundamentally and permanently alter your approach to free diving by showing you the Immersion way.
