Had an amazing experience at Free Willy's. Started out doing discover scuba, and by the end of my vacation ended up getting Open Water Certified as well as Advanced Open Water! Everyone was so helpful. Paweł was a great instructor and made me feel comfortable 100%. The other dive masters Jon Jon and Andrew were so helpful and friendly. Despite... More

To be honest, there are tonnes of diving shops on the White beach, but no where is better than Free Diving. Really friendly, informative and nice people, esp Elvira, Willy, Jon Jon and Willy's son. They took really good care of me and the equipments are all in good order and shape. People from Free Willy are sweet and nice,... More

Recently had the joy of completing an advanced open water course with Pawell. Could not have asked for a better instructor. Made us feel super comfortable and showed us some of the best underwater attractions we have seen so far in our short time being divers. Great boats with friendly helpful stuff. If you get chance, try the shipwreck, definitely... More

Nice small dive shop with a great service minded philosophy. Had a great time! I do recommend this shop if you like a familiar homely dive shop.

From travelling and diving around Philippines, Boracay was our 5th and last island destination before we head back to the UK. Our initial plan was to relax and not dive, though as a curious diver we pop in and out to few dive centers in Station 1 and ended up chatting with one of the Dive master Andrew, He is... More

Free Willy were great to dive with. I recommend them. The team was very friendly but still professional in their approach. They would run four dives a day at roughly 9am, 11am, 1pm and 3pm, coming back to shore after each one. They were also running two boats so could be very flexible with where you dived and tailor trips... More

Loved diving with Free Willy, great customer service, very welcoming and friendly atmosphere, passionate about diving that makes a positive experience, for a place that did not have the best diving. We (experienced divers) did a lot of diving with them and they were very well organised and attentive to customers. Would definitely recommend people dive with them.
