Super professional, experienced and lovely team. Great courses and location.
I’m a scuba diving instructor, and last year I decided to try freediving. I took the SSI level 1 with free diving Guru Vincent Sparreboom. Having taught scuba for 4 years it was great to be a student again, learning something new. Vincent’s professionalism, knowledge and experience was astounding. Definitely one of the most professional coaches I’ve ever had over my 20-year diving experience. In the water, we were joined by Edwin and Sebastian who at the time were training to become instructors. Both of these guys were so supportive and encouraging. I felt completely supported and safe throughout the whole experience. Previously when chatting about freediving, I managed to hold my breath for 2 minutes (only once). After Vincent coached us on the breath up and relaxation techniques, I was totally surprised that I managed to hold my breath for over 4 minutes!
After such a great experience, of course, I went back and did my level 2 with Vincent. Once again, the training was superb, and I surpassed everything I had learnt at level 1.
I cannot recommend this place enough.
Thank you, Vincent and Freedive Academy Panglao!
