I had a great time training for my Level 1 free diving certification with Andrew from Element. He was very responsive to all my questions leading up to the course and was very flexible with scheduling once I arrived. The course itself was surprisingly laid back which was fantastic and helped put me at ease, allowing me to perform beyond... More

I did the two day freedive course here in January 2016, and was the only one in the course. It was not very well organised - I received a manual two days before the course which I revised. The theory parts of the course simply covered everything already in the manual. The instructor yawned throughout the session and often got... More

Horrible experience with this company. After enquiring of the price I was laughed at that I couldn't find it on the site. After saying I wouldn't be diving with them I received this childish email as per picture attached. Really disappointing they lost my business before I even arrived. Better to find another school that will act professional.

My BF and I completed the level 1 course with Matt & Andrew which started with a theory session in the classroom at Kasai resort on Panagsama beach and then a static session in the pool to practice our triangular breathing techniques. We then completed a 3 hour session in the sea and another 2.5 hour session the following day... More

Element free diving is a wonderful place for free diving beginners. Before I arrived there, I can hold breath for less than 1 minute. But after Andrew’s training, I can hold my breath more than 3 minutes. Diving with him, I felt extremely safe and it was easy to keep relax. I think that is the most important thing for... More

Communication from Vancouver was excellent. Andrew was prompt in responding to emails. Upon arrival, last minute changes to our group size was accommodated without concern. We were a group of 8 newbies and felt we needed more "class room" time. The theory portion of the day was not delivered well, we skipped a lot of the agenda items and mostly... More
