100% recommend! As one of the scholars. I am very grateful to become one of their students. They’re very patient and passionate in teaching. Sir Giorgio and the rest prioritizes our safety, and that’s what makes BFA the best in teaching freediving. They also teach us the proper way in freediving with very specific details about it. They are also very friendly which makes the sessions very enjoyable, and they are also our number one motivators! I highly recommend Blue Freedom ApneaπŸ’―πŸ’―

Just got my first proper training in the platform which will exercise & test your capabilities and in mind. With their guidance, I can say this kind of training will enhance my capabilities and knowledge about Free Diving. A passionate man (Giorgio) alongside with his team who leads his students for their dreams underwater.

I am one of the scholars and all I can say is that they are very hands on and very patient in teaching. You are sorrounded with beautiful people. They are very approachable and friendly. One of the best freediving school here in bohol!! I highly recommend this freediving school!!

Excellent here I was able to make my personal record thanks to the safety of the team, also numerous and well prepared.

I have never felt so much safer and more confident free diving since I started training with Blue Freedom Apnea. They place a huge emphasis on making free diving as safe as possible, even during pool trainings. I also tend to be pretty hard on myself, especially when I feel like I’ve failed on open water sessions, but with Giorgio’s coaching skills and reassurance, I learned to be more forgiving with myself and celebrate the little victories I had. He also teaches me how I can go around my difficulties and just overall do better. As we go along with the training, I find myself getting used to the relaxation aspect of free diving as it is essential here, very much unlike the other sports, and the life (hahaha), I had been used to.

Money-wise, I appreciate how flexible they are with the payments, especially with money being tight during this pandemic. I’m just very happy I am still able to pursue my free diving dream, and have this be my escape when real life starts to get too tough (hehe).

Thanks Blue Freedom Apnea! I’ve definitely been recommending this with a lot of my friends and family.

After having done my level 1 with another system of freediving I decided to take on level 2 with Blue Freedom Apnea cause a friend of mine was volunteering there. It’s a fun team of volunteers there taking care of public relations and Giorgio (instructor and owner) is constantly on fire. He’s always got an open ear for you. I managed to improve my static apnea from about 1m 35 seconds up to close to 4 minutes! The food in the accomodation is fabulous, the beds could be comfier though, still more than 4 stars, therefore 5 :-). Grazie Giorgio!

This was my first attempt at freediving. The school is absolutely amazing! Giorgio and Puma are great instructors who will not skip on the details and are very caring towards their students. We were not staying at the house, but were always invited to the activities and meals with everyone. 100% recommend learning or advancing your freediving with these guys!

I travelled from Mindanao to Visayas to grab the scholarship offer from Blue Freedom Apnea. I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn and improve my freediving skills. I’ve also met people from different walks in life who are passionate to master the skills, and generous to share the knowledge and fun. With the guidance and help of Giorgio, I passed the Wave 1 course.
It was an awesome stay. Kudos to the team!

Charmmy Rose De Quia, Freediving Scholar

Did my first freedive in my life with these guys and I loved it so much!!! Even though I was afraid at the beginning Giorgio made me feel relaxed and save as soon as we got into the water. Thank you so much and I hope to learn from you more next time!

I stayed at Blue Freedom Apnea free diving center to study my first free diving course Wave 1. It was amazing to meet a lot of great people and have specifically experienced instructor.
I learned a lot on my time there and definitely will be back at some point!

Laura Sinisalo, Freediving Student

I completed my wave 1 course with Giorgio and highly recommend taking up or continuing your free diving experience with this School. Before I started I was a bit nervous of the water due to an incident that stayed with me from 2 years ago. Giorgio, along with the other instructors ensured me to overcome this, relax and enjoy going down in the water once again. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to take up this sport and enjoy the deep blue. Giorgio’s and the other instructors care, passion and patience to explain everything and demonstrate in such a way that made sense, making it very interesting to learn how the body works under the water, aswell as above. I’m very grateful for this experience. Many thanks Blue Freedom! 100% πŸ€™

A great freediving school with competent instructors who can share their knowledge about this exciting sport. Also met new friends while having fun. I suggest BFA if you want to experience the world under the surface. πŸ’―

Olerie Magadan, Freediving Student

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience training with Blue Freedom Apnea. It was my fist attempt at freediving and I left feeling really good, confident, and accomplished. My instructor was very knowledgeable, focused on safety and explained everything in a way I could connect with. There’s also a huge relaxation and meditative aspect to the sport itself that I really loved. The pool training was fun and the team that assisted with the open water dive made me feel comfortable and cared for. I’d definitely recommend it to any of my friends visiting Panglao!

Joy Szilagyi, Freediving Student

I am very new to the freediving world and BFA is the perfect match for me! I was lucky enough to be given a scholarship. They ensure not only do we progress safely but also enjoy the wonders of the deep blue!! All thanks to Giorgio’s passion and patience in teaching, I have conquered my fear of the ocean. Highly recommend!!! 🀩

Cathy Castillo, Freediving Student

I am so grateful to be one of their scholars. Giorgio and Puma are very patient when it comes to my progress. They are very hands-on when it comes to making sure I get the training right. They will never let a small progress go unnoticed β€” they celebrate your victories with you. Plus, everyone on their team are very welcoming, they treat everyone like family. I am very thankful for this opportunity and for meeting new friends as well!

Francis Diane Cimafranca, Freediving Student

Such an amazing experience! what i love the most is how they keep you safe while diving or how they prioritize the safety especially in the lessons, before going to the open water and pool sessions. Sir Giorgio’s way of teaching, also motivates us while listening to him. it challenges me to do more, or to see where or how far i can go. Very passionate and amazing mentor!

Nathalie Venturillo, Freediving Student

What I am really impressed of is the EMPHASIS of the safety in doing the free diving course that is repeatedly said. Free Diving can be very fun with appropriate teaching and lesson but could definitely dangerous if you free dive recklessly. It is like going to a war without a bullet in a gun

Sir Giorgio, my mentor, has been successful in instilling this thing in free divers undertaking the course. Not to mention, the teaching is perfectly and systemically organized so I am pretty well progressing.

I have never been so relaxed and amazed of how Ocean can be so relieving especially when you are underwater, watching marine animals

Also, Bohol is very nice spot for free diving and other recreational spots. So if you happen to come here or look for an aesthetically beautiful diving spot, I highly recommend that you drop by and enroll to this school ^_^
