Pim Vermeulen is one of the most experienced Instructors in the world & it showed when I completed the AIDA cross-over course with him. One of the advantages of choosing Pim is that if you have a question he will go out of his way to help you & encourage you to learn more. You will have lots of questions & he will have answers.

I loved his supportive & relaxed environment & I loved his degree of flexibility to leverage your strengths so that you develop faster as opposed to being straight jacketed to the "rules" so to speak. If your not sure whether to choose him or one of the bigger Schools - I would recommend Pim to any of my close friends. Enjoy the water & thank you for reading - Good luck! - Shaun Blue

I had the pleasure of training with Pim a few months back when I found myself stuck in my freediving progress. Pim gave me a few coaching lessons, and I had immediate results. I then continued on to do my AIDA instructor crossover with Pim followed by many many more coaching sessions over the next few months. Everything in the instructor course went smoothly and the coaching I received from him proved to be most valuable. Pim's calm and fun approach to teaching and coaching helped me to relax and feel at ease during my dives. His emphasis on making every dive session a fun one, even when things don't go according to plan, is an important thing to always remember. Training day in, day out can get tedious at times, but Pim makes every session a good experience. He is a caring coach who listens, and helps with whatever issues are blocking your freediving progress and also a friend you can trust and count on. By the time my training came to an end, thanks to Pim's coaching, I had achieved all the goals I set out to do! I look forward to doing more training with him in the near future.

We booked our level 4 Aida course and our Instructor course with Pim from Immersion Freedive Academy. We couldn't be more happy with the results. The classes were well structured and while his instructing was very clear and understandable, he had a great sense of humor and we got a lot of good laughs in. We've been able to really excel with our own classes now due to having Pim as an excellent example. I just wish that we lived closer to take advantage of his training courses too. 150% satisfied

I did the AIDA instructor cross over from SSI with Pim, and I'm really pleased with how the course went. Pim is great teacher who understands that every students has it own needs.

The theory was very well explained and he takes the time for the in-water qualifications to make sure I was fully comfortable and relaxed to complete all the requirments.

I would highly recommend Pim and Immersion.nu to all my friends. Thanks Pim for everything!

Pim's approach to teaching and coaching freediving is a breath of fresh air. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the courses he teaches and unlike many other instructor trainers I have encountered, he fully understands that each student has their own barriers to overcome. He promotes dive sessions that are relaxed, fun and rewarding through which confidence and progression can be achieved. I very highly recommend Pim and his teaching methods to freediving at Immersion Dahab.
Thanks for everything and safe diving :-)

I took my AIDA 4* and IC course with Pim and I'm very glad. He has great experience as the teacher and coach. All our training sessions were kept in absolutely safe and fun mode. Theory sessions were always good structured clear and with lots of useful information beyond typical course program. If you want to practice freediving in Dahab I strongly recommend do it with him.

Pim has enormous experience in teaching / coaching freedivers. I know some of the greatest freedivers who were taught / coached by him. When you dive underwater - Pim clearly sees and understands what is going on with you and what mistakes you make. You will receive tips on correcting your mistakes. Pim is also very hardworking and expresses the feeling that he never gets tired. And he does not stop until you reach your wished for result. Also, PIM has a wonderful sense of humour and his trainings take place in a relaxed , fun atmosphere. In General, if you want to be deeper and deeper, I highly recommend training with him!

Pim Vermeulen is not only an extremely experienced instructor and coach, who is able to understand his students specific needs or issues, and make them progress, he also make things happen in a fun and casual way.

Wow, wow, wow. I heard a lot, but had to come and experience for myself. Simply brilliant! I had a great opportunity to exchange the knowledge and "to put dots on i". Met amazing people that has joined the course and even a World record holder that was making this whole experience fantastically rich with his magical stories. xexexexexexe ;) If you are looking to combine fun and learning it is the person to get in touch with. Great person, experienced teacher and awesome location to do freediving. Did I mentioned super classrooms, chilled socializing sessions at the beginning of each day and super BBQ at the end of the course?
