"Best dive shop on Gili T"

I had an amazing first time ever scuba diving with Gili Divers. All the things we did was well organized. My instructor Clem is so so great, very caring. All the instructions from her was easy to understand and to follow, made me feel safe. Would definitely come back for my open water course with them!

Amazing experience at Gili Divers this week! Staff were all so nice. I did my  Open Water course with Mike who couldn’t have been a better instructor, I had a great time! I then decided to do my Advanced Adventurer course straight after with them and Leanne and Mauro were amazing! Really great dives, total professionals and great facilities. Jasper took our phots on one of the dives and they came back really cool - fully recommend him too!I’ll definitely be back, cheers guys!

While walk-in bookings are welcome, we recommend booking dive excursions and courses in advance, especially during peak seasons, to secure your spot and ensure availability.

You can pay via credit card with a 3% charge, transfer or cash in IDR. Payments can be made in advance for unlocking course materials.

What languages are available for the course?

SSI e-learning is available in many languages. We also have Instructors available to teach in English, Spanish, French, German, Dutch, Swedish, Italian and Indonesian.

Can I do my Advanced course with SSI when I have a PADI Open Water?

Yes, no problem! You can mix agencies and dive with any center (PADI with SSI or vice versa).

⁠Are SSI certifications recognised all over the world?

Yes. It doesn't matter which organisation you are certified through, as long as you're certified. For continuing education, you can also switch between agencies.
