I just went diving in Gili T while my son (10) did the OWC. The team was great and especially Alex had so much patience with my son. Safety was always at highest priority. I did six dives with the team and I was so happy i choose this diving center.

This Dive shop is one of many at the Gili islands. We chose it recommended by our resort next door (Ko Ko Mo Resort). The dive shop is run by Frenchmen and locals together, and is staffed with skilled, friendly, and smiling guys. We are 2 certified PADI divers and 3 snorkelers. The divers took a package of 5 dives,... More

These guys were so accommodating, they took the time to understand what you would like to see then they planned out where and when to go. They were slightly more expensive than other places but given the time of the year we had the boat to ourselves on every dive.

See related review (and photos) of Hotel Villa Ombak. Great job Jenny and Tino and Sam. I did 4 dives with the Academy. First rate operation and very nice people to go diving with. Recommend them highly. Pull your PADI dive certification via the iPhone app -- very handy indeed.

My family and I stayed at Vila Ombak for 6 days in the beginning of August. Our son aged 13 took his JOW certificate just 6 months ago and needed to build his confidence underwater. Vila Ombak diving Academy was the perfect place to do just that and during our many dives with Awi, Jenny, Tino and all the other... More

My wife and I were excited to learn to dive and we stopped by the dive school (we were also staying at Vila Ombak) as soon as we arrived. Jeanne was first to welcome us and she did a fantastic job of explaining our options and helping us. She didn't push us to make a decision about whether or not... More

Very nice courteous staff who accommodated my snorkeling trip request and even provided a great guide for me. They went out of their way to ensure I had a great trip and had a very nice and dependable boat.
