Dive trips for certified divers

At Gili Divers we are very fortunate as our boats are able to pull up directly outside our shop 30 meters away from the dive center. So no long walks to the boat! The dive sites around the Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air are very close. With our fast boats all the dive sites are within a 15-minute ride away. This allows us to return to Gili Divers between dives, where you can have a shower, relax on the beach in our beach restaurant La Cala Beach Club whilst deciding which dive site you would like to visit next.

Planning to get back in the water?

If it has been more than a year from your last dive or you just feel like refreshing your memory then the Scuba Review program is the way to go. During this half a day program you will refresh your knowledge on basic dive theory first and then do a refresher dive in the swimming pool. After a break you will get back in the open water by doing an afternoon dive. All 3 phases are done with one of our experienced divemasters. Once you have done your Scuba Review you can continue fun diving with us as much as you like. Scuba Reviews can be included in our dive packages.
