Freediving and Yoga Retreat, Cebu, Philippines (10-14 April 2020)


Escape for the long weekend and relax with a combination of yoga, training and recreational freediving. 

For our training dives, we will join FreediveHQ, a freediving centre located in Mactan, Cebu (~30min from Cebu airport). The shop sits about 100m from the reef drop off, where clear blue waters await! Conditions are usually close to perfect, with minimal current and wind, and unlimited depth. All training dives are done from a boat, with 2 dive sessions available per day at 10.30am and 2.30pm. Yoga is held every day before the morning dive, at no extra cost. 

On 12 April, we will make a one day trip to Moalboal (about 2 hours away) to explore the rich reefs there and freedive with the massive school of sardines. A night dive is a possibility (additional cost). 

If you are unable to come for the full duration of the trip but would like to come for a few days, we can adjust the price accordingly. Please contact us to arrange this. 

We will be running Molchanovs Wave 12 and 3 courses concurrently during this trip with the theory and pool segments in Singapore before the trip.

To join the training dives for this trip, you must have taken a course with an open water component before (e.g. Molchanovs Wave 1, AIDA 1 or 2, SSI Level 1, PADI Freediver). 

Please check the current visa requirements for your nationality to travel to Philippines and ensure that you have the appropriate visa, if required.

Booking and cancellation policy

For cancellations of up to 1 month before the trip, a refund of the deposit less $100 admin fee will be provided.
