Immersia is a freediving school located in the heart of Bondi Beach, offering freediving courses in Bondi and the Eastern Suburbs. Anyone is welcome, from 100% beginner to full amphibian. Our Freediving Courses and Freediving Taster Days are designed to give you the best experience possible – convenient, accessible, fun and specific to your needs.
If you love to explore new sensations and experiences, you will love freediving. It offers a chance to get out of comfort zone, into new environments, and into your own mind. Plus, it looks pretty cool. To find out more about the life-changing benefits of freediving, book yourself onto one of our freediving courses in Bondi, or check out 5 ways freediving changes your life. Right now, freediving in Sydney is bigger than ever and hundreds of new freedivers and spearfishers are getting into the water every day.
As the popularity of freediving and spearfishing in Sydney grows, so do the number of accidents. Almost all freediving accidents happen as a result of failing to follow basic safety procedures, and by divers pushing themselves far beyond their limits. The growing number of spearfishers in the water also has an impact on our environment, and that’s more apparent in Bondi than anywhere else in in Sydney.
The Immersia Mission: To make freediving safe, fun and accessible for everyone.
Who am I?
Hi, I’m Bella.
I’m a Sydney-based freediving instructor and blogger. I created Immersia Freediving to share my passion for freediving with people who want to learn to freediving in Sydney, plus anywhere else on earth. I decided to set up my freediving school in Bondi, where it would be accessible and convenient to learn to freedive! Bondi is home to some amazing diving and, as a local, I’ve found all the best places to freedive in the area.
When I first started freediving back in 2017, I was a mess. I was a sloppy swimmer, and I was scared of sharks and deep water. I’d usually be the only woman in a course, surrounded by experienced spearos. I also found the broader freediving community to be a bit ‘elite’ (thank you to the comments section of every freediving post ever).
Since that time, I’ve dived to depths and times I never thought I would achieve. More importantly, freediving has let me access places and feelings that I would never have otherwise known. I get such a kick out of teaching students – both through my own freediving courses in Bondi and through teaching for other schools around Australia. The transformation that happens with someone who is learning to freediving is incredible to witness and be a part of!
I want Immersia to be the place where those new divers can explore this world with confidence, knowing how to protect themselves, their buddies, and their environment.
