Freedive Geelong

Hello, stoked your here! 

My name is James and I created Freedive Geelong as a way for me to get people into the water, well... under the water. I bring an extensive list of relevant qualifications and experience, that I want to share with you

My motivation is rooted in the desire to reveal to people the awe-inspiring beauty of the Great Southern Reef, which I consider one of the world's most extraordinary diving destinations. It is a place of sheer magnificence, and if you haven't experienced its underwater wonders, you're truly missing out. Furthermore, I am committed to fostering the growth of freediving in Australia, with a special focus on Victoria, and establishing a close-knit community of skilled, safety-conscious freedivers and spearfishermen.

My Experience: 

I've been a lifelong resident of Victoria's Surfcoast, and since a young age, I've been immersed in the ocean. It's become an integral part of who I am. For nearly two decades, I've been engaging in spearfishing, surfing, or freediving along this coastline, often spending my time there weekly, and at times, even daily. As a result, I've developed a deep familiarity with the underwater realm, akin to the bond with an old friend.

My relevant qualifications:


  • Freediving instructor for Apnea Total

  • ​Freediving instructor for PADI

  • Qualified Intensive Care Paramedic 

  • AUSTSWIM Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety

  • Surfing Instructor 

  • Surf Survival Instructor​​

  • Surf Bronze Medallion

If you ever have any questions, or just want to chat about this awesome place/sport then please don't hesitate to contact me!
