Julian Boland

My affinity with the ocean began as far back as I can remember, from mucking around in the surf as a kid, boating with the old man, surfing and throwing out a line. It wasn’t long before I put on a mask and snorkel to jump over the side of the boat to see what was going on underneath the surface.

I took up scuba diving and I guess it was at this point where I got a true perspective of the underwater world and was really hooked. It just wasn’t enough. I wanted more of a challenge, so I ditched the tanks and so began my new life as a freediver and haven’t looked back since.

Freediving and Spearfishing for me is more than just a hobby, it is a way of life. When I’m not in the water, I’m thinking about it, looking at weather forecasts and planning the next adventure.

It is this passion that I want to share with others.

COVID-19 and Apnea Australia

The Australian Government has just issued new public health orders to help protect the community and reduce the spread of COVID-19. In response, Apnea Australia will be making some temporary changes to business operations. As pool and ocean access is temporarily not possible, all pool and ocean sessions are cancelled until further notice. We encourage everyone to continue with dry training exercises. Courses will not be held on site as gatherings are not allowed, but we are working on online options which will be complimented by practical sessions once restrictions are lifted. As Australia slowly begins to lift restrictions, we will make the required adjustments to our activities and will update you here and on our other social channels on upcoming courses and training sessions. Stay safe and enjoy the silence
