The AIDA 2 course taught by Wolfgang and Gadie was a perfect introduction to free diving that provided a good amount of information on the sport to safely practice it, as well as a great feeling of accomplishment at the end. The instruction was professional and overall structure with class, pool sessions and open water worked very well. Thanks guys.

We rented a buoy, 45m reference line and wetsuits. Staff was nice and easy to deal with. They accepted PayPal. We found that many freedive shops will not rent gear or a buoy&line if you are not in a course w them. I find this weird; a certified SCUBA diver can rent more expensive, fragile and potentially dangerous gear all... More

Reflecting on my recent trip to the Philippines, I would have to say that this freediving course was one of the absolute highlights! It was a really interesting, super-unique insight into this impressive extreme sport. It was also of great benefit to our future snorkelling trips, as by using the relaxation and breathing techniques we learned, we were able to... More

We are so happy that we chose to learn to freedive with Freediving Philppines and can't recommend Wolfgang and his team highly enough. My girlfriend and I were complete beginners when we came to the Aida 2** course. We met Wolfgang at the resort for day 1 of training and from the word go he was both a very calming... More

We were not newbies when we come for AIDA *** course. We had two main goals: improve our personal best in freediving and to get AIDA *** certificates. Our instructor was Carlo.

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.
