Immersia Philosophy

As the popularity of freediving and spearfishing 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 PADI freediving instructor and blogger. I created Immersia Freediving to share my passion for freediving with people who are looking for their next adventure.

Bella, freediver and owner of Immersia

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’ve worked with students and friends who are getting into freediving and dealing with those same issues I faced. And I love coaching them through it.

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.
