Freedive Academy Panglao

Since 2015 we have been teaching at the famous Napaling reef. Even though in 2019 we moved to a brand new dive centre about 300 meters from where we had our first freediving centre. We still have direct access to the Napaling with the massive drop-off and the Panglao Sardines.

We now teach from the most amazing high-end facility directly on the access road to Napaling Reef. The facility is fully equipped with high-end classrooms, premium freediving gear, a two-lane 25-meter pool, fitness and gym area and luxury bamboo bungalows and canopy for our yoga and stretching sessions.

We are very proud to be one of the global leaders in professional freedive development programs with Zero to Hero freediving programs starting daily, every quarter new freediving internships and we run freedive instructor courses pretty much every month in our shop and now almost weekly online.

The Freedive Academy Panglao focuses on three things;

  1. Recreational course, mainly Level 1 and 2 courses.
  2. Master Training
  3. And more than anything else, we are a Professional Freedive Development centre.

SSI, Molchanovs and AIDA recreational freediving courses:

The Freedive Academy Panglao offers a wide range of freediving courses and many many freediving specialities. Of course the most popular are the SSI Level 1 and Level 2 and Molchanovs Wave 1 and 2 freediving courses, and these courses can be started at pretty much any day of the week, and are being run many times a week. We also run at least one Level 3 or Wave 3 course a month, but usually, these courses are scheduled weeks or even months in advance. If you are interested in joining us for a Level 3 course and for example Master training, be sure to contact us so we can make you an excellent package.
