Dumagat Freedive International Freediving School

Learn and experience freediving in Dauin with the country's longest-tenured professional freediving instructor.


Founded in 2014, Dumagat Freedive is a locally operated professional freediving center in the Philippines. Formerly located in Romblon, now in Dauin in the province of Negros Oriental.

With access to depth within swimming distance, we can spend more time freediving instead of spending a great deal of time boating or traveling from the shop to the dive site. Dumagat Freedive offers personalized freediving education using SSI’s world-class training methods, materials, and standards.

SSI prepares and evaluates their freediving instructors like no other, making them solid, professional, and among the best in the industry. A member of the RSTC in the United States and the WRSTC in Europe, and one of the very few training agencies holding a global ISO certification, your training, whether recreational or professional level, is recognized anywhere in the world. 

The name Dumagat refers to a tribe of semi-nomadic people living in the coastal areas of northeastern Philippines, living always by the sea. The name rings nice and goes with our desire to always be by the sea.
