Dive the gilis




There are many dive centers now on all three Gili islands of Trawangan, Meno and Gili Air.

Here is a short list of some of the most recent:

Gili divers,
Blue marlin dive,
Manta dive,
Villa Ombak Diving Academy,
Lutwala Dive,
Buddha dive,
Dream Divers,
Big Bubble,
Trawangan dive,

All offer PADI or SSI courses from the total beginner who has never tried scuba diving before to the open Water Course.

Following that you can take the Advanced diver with many options, some are compulsory, the  Deep dive, Underwater navigation, and Multi level. there is then an array of choices which can also be taken on and used as a speciality diver, here is an indication:  Night Dive,  Peak Performance Buoyancy, Fish Identification, Search & Recovery Diver, Underwater Naturalist, Multilevel Diver, Equipment Specialist, Boat Diver, Digital Underwater Photographer, Drift Diver and the Underwater Navigator.


All shops SHOULD have the same price but that is not true.  All GIDA members adhere to a MINIMUM price agreement ( SET OUT IN THE GIDA PRICE LIST ) but several are more either due to location or they charge taxes or they offer lunch with the dives etc, but customers can expect a minimum price agreement.  Also several shops are not GIDA members at this time so have considerably lower prices !!

Those shops also will not be following the same safety standards and will not have other dive centers to call on in event of a rescue missing diver. Sinking boat etc.  After the next meeting on July 15 I will provide you an updated list of all current paid members of GIDA.
