Freedive Academy Panglao Pricelist ‘Freediving Courses’

Below you will find an overview of the 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 contact us, and we’ll explain all the possible options and costs.

We accept cash payments in the following currencies USD ($), RMB (¥), PHP (₱), Euro (€) and large bills in AUD ($) 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.

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 here the Molchanovs Wave 4 course too, but this level is far beyond recreational level and is considered the competitive course.

We are very proud to say that we can teach almost all available freediving specialities, including almost 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 teach the Molchanovs Lap 1, Lap 2, Lap 3 and Lap 4 courses too, but since we have the ocean 300 meters away from us, this just doesn’t make much sense to do so. We do regularly switch from for example Wave 1 to Lap 1 when students have equalisation problems.

Course Package

  • SSI Level 2 Freediving Instructor & Molchanovs Wave 2 Instructor Package

Duration

  • 13 days

Price per Person

  • $1,650

We’ll run this package first with the SSI Freedive Instructor Course, and during the SSI FITC, we add time for video review and already discuss in-detail Molchanovs 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. This is important. The above prices are NOT including the instructor kits!

The instructor kits are the registration fees and 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 it’s not included in the above FITC prices. The exact cost for each FITC instructor kit depends on your level in freediving, but it’s usually between $150 and $220.

Change your Lifestyle! Become a Pro Freediver!

We offer a wide range of possibilities to become a professional freediver. We offer different instructor courses, plus numerous speciality instructor course. 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.

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

Just fill in the form, and our support team who are all freedivers too, will get back to you usually within hours – if they’re not diving 😉
