      Best freediving place in Bohol
      Look no further, this is a great place with positive people, best instructors and as I recall it's also the cheapest on the island. I was super satisfied with my freediving experience. Totally recommended!

      Took their Discovery diving course
      Initially, I had not planned to go to Pangloa, but my hostel friend suggested this place so I adjusted my itinerary and this was the best thing ever. Overcame my fear of water because the instructors are caring and encouraging and did sth I never thought I could. Defo visiting again.

      BEST FREEDIVING SCHOOL IN PANGLAO
      I did AIDA 2 with Blue Freedom Apnea and I had the best time. They will help you with all the techniques you need and would focus on helping you with freediving. Better enroll with Blue Freedom and enjoy the water more.

    I recently completed the Discovery Freediving Program and it was an eye-opening experience. The instructors were knowledgeable and patient, guiding us through essential techniques and safety measures. The pool practice helped build confidence, and the open water session was an unforgettable adventure. While I wished for a bit more time in the ocean, this course definitely left me eager to explore freediving further.

    The staff is very friendly and made our freedive experience very memorable in a positive way. We had multiple diving instructors, but Alroy really stood out for us and deserves a 5 star rating on his own. His kind way of teaching and positive feedback while diving really encouraged us to dive more than we originally planned. We would recommend Blue Freedom Apnea for sure and hope that a lot of people get to chance to dive with Alroy as he is one of the best instructors we ever had!

    Overall, it was really worth it. I loved the experience, and I'll definitely take what I learned to heart. The coaches were also really accomodating and skilled, so it was easy for us to follow their guidance.

    Coach Alroy in particular really helped boost my confidence under the water, with numerous tips and advice which helped me gradually improve with each dive.

    100% recommend! very patient and passionate instructor. With Sir Giorgio, as our instructor, i find the course very relaxing and fun. You just have to listen to what he says to keep yourself lax and safe. the place is also amazing , so its probably more fun when diving.

    It's the best decision to have chosen Blue Freedom Apnea for my first freediving experience. The theory class is straightforward and informative to equipped us in the water.
    Grateful that we have our Guide/Safety Diver Joshua who is very patient and who never ceases to encourage us and gave us advices in order to capture the best shots and videos.
    Shoutout to his brother Louie as well who make sure we are always safe. With them, you will definitely be in good hands and will have a great time.

    My first free diving experience and it’s definitely a fun one. I learned a lot from my instructors Ms Deborah, Sir Ij, and Sir Joshua. They also offer some nice reel videos that you can post on your Instagram. A perfect place to learn free-diving and it’s beginner friendly. I cannot wait to comeback💗
