Instructional Fees

Tuition rates reflect in-water and classroom instructional provision. They also include instructor expenses (travel & accommodation) for Subic Bay.  For courses outside of Subic, supplementary charges for travel/accommodation may apply.  For long-duration or multi course bookings,  I charge minimum expenses of 1500php for an ‘off day’ (1 day off in 7).

I do teach internationally, so travel requiring air-fare becomes expensive – if you want me to teach at your location, please contact me to discuss arrangements for holding one or more courses for multiple participants to spread the costs.

Max participants for any course is 3.   To reserve private (1-2-1) training, please add 50% to the stated rate.

Recreational Level Training –  $95USD per day

Sidemount Training – $115USD per day

Technical Courses – $145USD per day (inc Tec and Advanced Sidemount)
