Freedive Academy Panglao Pricelist ‘Freediving Courses’

Below you will find an overview of our beginner freediving courses, the regular and recreational freediving courses, and the Freediving Specialities we teach most. Unfortunately, there are too many variations for the long-term packages like the internships, long-term training, and freediving Zero to Hero’s to list them all here. If you have something special like, for example, you want to join us for a month to complete your Molchanovs Wave 1, 2, and 3, and one week of training, please get in touch with us, and we’ll explain all the possible options and costs.

We accept cash payments in the following currencies PHP (₱), USD ($), RMB (¥), and Euro (€). The USD prices are our base- and fixed prices, and the amounts in the other currencies will be calculated on the daily international exchange rate. On this page, you will find the different payment options we offer.

Pricing Overview of our Recreational Freediving Courses

We consider the SSI Basic freediving course and the AIDA 1 introduction days, and we offer the intro days with and without certification.

The SSI Freediving Courses Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3, the AIDA 2, 3, and 4, and the Molchanovs Freediving Courses Wave 1, Wave 2, and Wave 3 are recreational freediving courses. Try Freediving is also recreational but is more a workshop than a course. We list the Molchanovs Wave 4 course here, too, but this level is far beyond the recreational level and is considered a competitive level course.

We are proud to say that we can teach almost all available freediving specialties, including nearly all the SSI Speciality Instructor courses. We don’t have any fixed schedules for the freediving specialties, but we have plenty of well-trained instructors capable of teaching the various specializations. We can also teach the specializations AIDA Monofin Freediver and AIDA Competition Safety Freediver.

Please read this carefully; the above ‘professional level’ prices do NOT include the instructor kits fees or the first-year annual membership fee.

The instructor kits are the agency registration fees and the first-year annual membership fee and will give you access to all the student materials and manuals. We will order your instructor kit for you, but you must pay this directly to SSI, AIDA, and/or Molchanovs.

We can pay this and put it 1-on-1 on your bill, but the fees are not included in the above FITC prices. The exact cost for each FITC instructor kit depends on your professional level. With SSI, the fees range between $300 and $400, while with Molchanovs or AIDA, the first-year annual fee is between $100 to $150.

Change your Lifestyle! Become a Pro Freediver!

We offer a wide range of possibilities to become a professional freediver. We can run different instructor courses, plus numerous specialty instructor courses. We can offer them as a package with training and or housing included. We also offer possibilities like joining our Freediving Instructor Internship, where you immediately gain experience working as a Freediving Instructor.
