Amazing Environment and Instructor

Obviously, they are extremely geographically well-positioned, as you can see their website etc.

My room was just located 100m away from the point where we can go 100m depth.

Wake up and change, walk to the shore, and you cantor up the buoy just a few kicks away from the shore.

My amazing instructor Nejc just accompanied me for a week and pushed my PB down over 10m.

Muchas gracias amigos!!!

One of the best if not the best place to freedive.

I did my SSI level one with them back in June 2017 and my level 3 last July, and it feels like coming back home. The center has a very contagious positive atmosphere that you do not want to miss. Everyone is so great from the instructor to the ground crew. At Freedive Academy Panglao you’ll meet freedivers of all level, and everyone is so supportive of each other. The center has the facilities you’ll need for your freediving training. The best part of it is that the centre is only a few minutes away from your depth goal.

Will definitely come back.

I recommend everyone to train at the Freedive Academy Panglao. It was the best decision we made in the Philippines. The dive site drop off is stunning, sardine storm at my arms reach, buoy line ready to connect at any moment when you feel like jumping into the water, helpful staff….lovely training buddies. No boat, no waiting. Just jump in, and you are ready to train. My partner and I loved it so much and will come back again, definitely. Muah!

Thanks my teacher Daichi (Chen Dadi) for his caring and sharing, he is super professional and obviously knows a lot about freediving. He helped me to overcome my fears and my limitations. Now freediving becomes my new pursue in life!

Excellent freediving school

A special thanks to our great teachers, Nejc and Kim! We had good fun, learned a lot & enjoyed the super nice reef and the sardines.

Location is perfect, with a house reef directly nearby dive centre.

We hope to come back soon!

Safety, Highly Qualified Staff, and Location, Location, Location.

Can’t recommend this place any more.

They have the single best location for freediving in Bohol (and perhaps Asia).

Highly professional and courteous staff, easily contactable and always willing to help…

Great for ALL levels of freediving – 10meters to 100+

A great Level 3 course!

I had been looking for a place to do my level 3 for a while, and I’m super happy that I choose Freedive Academy Panglao, not only did they get back to my first enquiry email super fast but it is also a great learning environment! I got sick during my course and taking a couple of days off was not only not a problem but also encouraged rather than rushing through to the finish! 🙂

The school is located right by an amazing reef so when diving you usually run into a whole bunch fish which is always amazing. We even did a night snorkelling/diving session around the full moon which was amazing to get to look at the reef with the moonlight.

10/10 would dive here again! 🙂

Best freedive spot!

I went to Freedive Academy Panglao to train for three weeks and ended up doing my SSI L2 with Vincent while there. They have THE best spot, amazing underwater scenery makes it super easy to relax and enjoy each dive, super comfortable close to shore and very organised shop. Will definitely head back soon!

Amazing dive spot for freediving! The staff at Freedive Academy Panglao are all great people from different walks of life. It was a memorable experience filled with exciting adventures and infinite possibilities. Cheers to more dives!

I feel like home being here!

As a freediver, I’d say Freedive Academy Panglao is truly “from freedivers, for freedivers”.

Just a few minutes away from shore/diving platform, you can dive any time of the day as you wish. Some go diving at 6 am, some go diving at 5 pm. We have 25m depth with the spectacular drop-off coral reef which will definitely give you a wow-effect. For advanced freedivers seeking depth, 1-minute swimming out we can have over 80m depth.

Inside the resort, if you don’t want to dive, you can swim, yoga, dry training, or just chill out on the hammock any time of the day.

The school provides all freediving gears you need and all high-end equipment.

Any instructors at the school, especially Vincent, is super helpful and friendly. He is always willing to explain and share his passion and knowledge of freediving.

The school really makes people feel like home here.

You travelled to Panglao, dove with us, and you love us – awesome, we love you too! 🙂 And now you want to share your experience with others. Thank you!

But serious now, we sincerely appreciate the love!

Thank you!

We hope to see you back here soon!
