The Discovery Freediving Program (or DFP) is divided into 3 main sessions. These sessions are designed to impart on you the necessary skills you need to be a Freediver in the least amount of time possible.
1. Theory Session
This is a 1 hour freediving theory lecture that teach basic concepts needed in freediving. The lessons taught here you’ll carry with you all throughout your freediving journey. You’ll learn concepts like:
- Boyle’s law
- CO2 management
- Freediving Breathing cycles
- The importance of equalization
- Safety in Freediving
2. Pool Session
After the theory class, dip your toes into the cool pool water.
The pool session will teach you proper finning techniques and get you familiar with Static Apnea (breath holds). You’ll be surprised by the progress you’ll make in this session alone. Some students who couldn’t hold their breath for more than 30 seconds end up with a 2 minute or more breath hold at the end of this session!
3. Open Water Session
And the last and most important part of the program, you’ll be brought into the open sea.
Over the years we’ve developed a specific routine of open water drills in order to transform a complete novice or even a non swimmer into a confident ocean lover. This routine allows most of our students to dive up to 8 meters deep.
All in a single day.
We use buoys and lines to get them familiar with freediving techniques, 1 meter at a time.
And we are proud to say that we are probably one of the only schools that are able to offer a 45 degree tight line to help those with difficulty in equalizing.
To take the program you only need a mask, snorkel, and fins! You are also welcome to wear a wetsuit and weight belt to get the full freediving experience?

Mask and Snorkel combo – Php 100
Short fins – Php 100
