I had a great dive with Free Will Diving. The DM were fun and well trained, their equipment was also great (they also have the best coffee after your dive!). Unfortunately I lost my gopro getting back into the boat. However, my DM reassembled all of our gear and went down again with me to search for it. He than... More

If you are like me and are thinking twice about doing your first scuba dive, that's normal. But you would be missing out if you didn't take the plunge with Free Willy. Right from the hotel pick-up, the experience is fantastic. My instructor was Oliver and even though the cost of the dive is cheap, the experience certainly does not... More

I did 4 fun dives at Free Willy, and had a great experience with this dive shop. I've done dives with other operators on the island so was able to make a comparison. First of all, the location of the shop is perfect, especially for lazy divers like me! The dive boat is right in front of the shop and... More

Free Willy diving center is in my opinion the best in Boracay. The owner (Willy) is paying attention to details and makes sure the guests are feeling comfortable and safe. Willy takes its guests to the best dive sites on the island. What I really loved about it was that the boats are not packed. We usually went diving with... More

Loved diving with Willie and his team. Did 3 dives, one to a wreck where we saw a turtle skeleton which was a very unique experience. We did a reef dive and saw 4 (living) turtles, frog fish and loads of others exciting life. We finished with a deep dive to just past 35 metres and saw a beautiful reef... More

Wow, what a fantastic experience! I recently completed my Open Water Certification with Free Willy Diving and it was amazing! My instructor (Steve) was extremely patient, experienced and really professional. In fact, all of the staff were great - honestly such amazing, unexpected hospitality - something that is really rare nowadays. Arriving every morning at Free Willy to smiling faces... More

I think the title says it all! This was one of the highlights of my stay. Where to begin? Willy is great. He's clearly into seeing the big stuff when diving and so can give you great tips on that. I am, however, more into looking for the little invisible things. Once we had established that, he put me with... More

Me and my better half, we knew we wanted to dive, despite my crazy, even a bit irrational fear of breathing only through my mouth. I had a couple of stumbles at the confined sessions to the point of not wanting to dive at all, but it was all totally worth it - our instructor was patient, helpful, we practised... More

It was my first dive after I got my liscence. I was assigned a personal dive master. Felt very safe and reassured throughout the entire dive. Wish I could have dived more with them. Will definitely dive with them if I visit boracay again.
