Freediving Boracay

 

Class 3 Philippine Freediving Destination

Freediving in Boracay had to happen. Boracay has every other active sport opportunity - apart from anything to do with snow. But in truth, Boracay and freediving do not have a happy match unless your objective is just to learn the fundamental principles.

Boracay sits at the northern extreme of Panay Island - an island surrounded, on the North, South and East coasts, by relatively shallow water. Freediving has been the method for commerce here for centuries – for collecting oysters and mussels to fill dinner plates - but as a sport, the same shallow waters that produce an abundance of delicious bivalves are not ideal for freediving for competition, or even as a venue to set personal best performances.

If you want to truly experience freediving in Boracay you actually have to travel farther North.

Freediving Locations Around Boracay

Freediving around Boracay offers maximum depths of around 40 metres. Great for learning but no so good for the experienced freediver intent on setting a personal best performance beneath the waves.

For the experienced freediver, who has chosen Boracay as her/his base for a freediving vacation, then the real challenges can be found about an hour by boat North from the island paradise.

Along the southwest coast of Tablas island (located to the North of Boracay) the intermediate and experienced freediver will find depths of 100+ metres within just a short distance from shore.
