Thanks for your reply. Great that you passed. Blackouts happen very seldom and i hope it did not scare you off. Keep in mind Freediving is a safe sport even when these blackouts happen since you know now how to safely handle one. Nose bleeding sometimes can happen when divers have a hard time equalizing in the beginning and push... More

Been scuba diving for a couple of years and wanted to try something new. Our instructor was Carlo, and he was very good; great knowledge about how the body reacts to diving and very reliable when we were out diving.

I did the AIDA 2* course together with a friend while traveling in the Philippines. The instructors Carlos and Rinante were very good at explaining the theory behind the various techniques and come with hands on advice. The free dives in the ocean were great - diving in a massive school of sardines and seeing a big turtle on our... More

When we visited Moalboal in March, it rained 90% of or trip and we were unable to do a tour we had scheduled with another company, but Wolfgang and his team made sure we still got to do as much as possible and shuttled us around for a very eventful day seeing whale sharks, canyoning and free diving with sardines....

First rate operation. Long term ambition to learn free-diving and I'm glad I did it with these guys. Couldn't fault the course in any way. Wolfgang and Carlos are clearly extremely passionate and their enthusiasm is infectious. I'll be back for the advanced!
