Freedive Academy Panglao Pricelist ‘Freediving Courses’

Below you will find an overview of our beginner freediving courses, the regular and recreational freediving courses and 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 ($), RMB (¥), Euro (€) and large bills in AUD ($) and GBP (£). 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.

Please note: because of the tables below, this page is best viewed on tablet or desktop.

Pricing Overview of our Recreational Freediving Courses

We consider the SSI Basic freediving course, the SSI Freediving Courses Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3, the Molchanovs Freediving Courses Wave 1, Wave 2 and Wave 3 (and the AIDA equivalents) the 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 very proud to say that we can teach almost all available freediving specialities, including nearly all the SSI Speciality Instructor courses. We don’t have any fixed schedules for the freediving specialities, but we have plenty of well-trained instructors capable of teaching the various specialisations. On request, we can also teach the specialisations AIDA Competition Freediver and AIDA Competition Safety Freediver.

We can also teach the Molchanovs Lap 1, Lap 2, Lap 3 and Lap 4 courses, but since we have the ocean 300 meters away from us, we prefer to focus on the open-water courses. We do regularly switch from, for example, Wave 1 to Lap 1 when students have equalisation problems.

Please note, this is not one single mixed agency course. First, we’ll run the SSI Freedive Instructor Course. During the SSI FITC, we add time for video review and immediately discuss Molchanovs in detail – especially the skills and differences between SSI and Molchanovs. Because of this, we can offer the Molchanovs Instructor Cross Over in a shorter time frame and thus much cheaper.

Please read this carefully; the above ‘professional level’ prices are NOT including the fees for the instructor kits.

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 will have to pay this directly to SSI and/or Molchanovs.

We can pay this too 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, the package is available at $100.

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 speciality instructor courses. We can offer them as a package with training and or with housing included. We also offer possibilities like joining our Freediving Instructor Internship, where you immediately gain experience working as a Freediving Instructor.

Regardless of which package you choose, for sure you’ll love what Panglao has to offer you!
