I promised myself 10 years ago, that if and when I came back to Coron, I would learn how to dive. What I didn't know was that freediving would have a stronger appeal to me than scuba diving would. (Paula's freediving video on their website was that captivating.) I booked a Freediving Coron certificate course which ran for 2 days and added another day for a training dive for good measure. I timed this towards the last few days of my trip when my family have already gone home. This was essentially a solo trip for me. And it was a perfect way to bookend my trip. Paula is a friendly and patient instructor. She was focused and dedicated but still so much fun at the same time throughout the whole course. She was gracious enough to take a few photos and videos of me learning how to freedive, and I'm so grateful for that (with my GoPro essentially broken). She was basically our art director with all her great ideas for what to shoot. Besides teaching me the gift of freediving, she also gave me a sense of what the Coron community is like. Various freedivers based in Coron joined us in our trips to Barracuda Lake and Skeleton Lake and it was lovely meeting them and seeing what Coron is about beyond the top tourist attractions. It's always lovely to see Coron through a local's eyes as I got to hang out with them after our freediving session. Can't wait to freedive again with Freediving Coron!

I was not able to imagine that it is possible to reach 20 Meters depth in just 2 days. Those guys do the impossible and bring you there without feeling uncomfortable or under „pressure“ 😅

I trained in the Coron freediving club for 3 days for advance freediving certification. Very professional and friendly instructors - Danny and Cat, a nice atmosphere. All this helped me improve my diving. I got great pleasure.

Decided to walk into Paula and Catalin's freediving shop to work on my breathing technique for diving and walked out after two amazing days with professional instructors and wonderful welcoming people- Paula and Catalin! I heartily recommend this experience to anyone who wants to learn or improve their freediving by working in a very customized way with their personal trainers. Catalin and Paula are very respectful of their customers and never book the course for more than a few people, so you get to work with them in a very focused manner and receive personalized feedback on each of your dives. Their teaching technique and skills are extremely effective as you know exactly what to do better next time. Apart from this, getting to the Barracuda lake and diving there is a wonderful experience on its own. Speed boat to chrystal clear waters and learning to freedive at your own pace. Thank you Catalin & Paula and hope to see you again soon! :)

The two days at freediving coron were just amazing! I've been spearfishing for a couple of years with my friends in croatia and greece and learned most things by my self. Therefore its just normal that I aquired some habits that seemed totally normal to me. The guys from freediving coron take their time for every student and they analyize your diving skills in a very personalized way. Even if you are a experienced freediver, I am sure the guys can still teach you skills you didn't know. Thanks a lot.
