Fun Dives

The Gili Islands from A to Z

Divers get the most out of there dives as we always do groups by level.

We do organize up to 5 dives a day (6AM, 9AM, 11:30AM, 02:30 PM, Mandarin dive, Night dive) everyday, we keep group size to max 4 divers and there are no other time limit than air and deco time...

The rainy season is gone and the visibility conditions are just amazing the last few days... More than 30 meters this morning and 29 degrees water...

You can join on any dive we organize :

 

  • At 6 AM, for the most brave, when the sun rises, we would go for an early dive before the others divers would get to the spots. We need 4 divers at least to organize it.

  • At 9 AM, we usually go to Gili Trawangan, in some deep spots to visit tortoises, sharks and shoals of fish.

  • At 11:30 AM & 02:30 PM, we go around Gili Air and Gili Meno for some relaxing dives. At the menu ? Uncommon fishes that only the Indonesia's water can provide.

  • We are muck diving specialists and if you are interested in the Small and the weird we could arrange those dive sites for you…

  • Also we do offer FLUO NIGHT DIVE, it is a totally brand new experience to go observe coral reefs.
