What an insane Freediving Retreat we have prepared for you! This time, The Underwater Culture is taking you to Jervis Bay, NSW where we will dive with the amazing Australia fur seals and other wild creatures underwater! Jervis Bay’s crystal-clear waters provide the
idyllic setting for observing their antics, above and below the water. We will take you to have the best time and build an underwater relationships with our furry friends.

This retreat offers a great opportunity for all the ocean frothers out there that love being surrounded by wildlife in their natural habitat while also interested in taking their photography to the next level! Blaze Parsons and Bri Heaney will be hosting photography and editing workshops to learn about your adjustable settings, cameras, accessories. We will have the opportunity to test it all in the water for our 12-hour dive day with all the seals and scenery any budding photographer could ask for!
