Located a few minutes’ walk from the main dock, Aquaddiction is a small dive shop with a great atmosphere. With the emphasis on small dive groups and long dives Aquaddiction is a welcome change from the ‘factory’ approach to diving so often found in Asia. Our beachfront location is the perfect place to chill out between dives, study for courses and of course… to hold our famous beach BBQ’s! Our custom built dive boat can reach even the furthest dive sites in around 10 minutes and with maximum four people per group and no time limits on dives you can dodge the crowds and have what every diver wants… more time underwater! We also have an in-house camera rental service or, if you prefer, our resident professional photographer and videographer can accompany you underwater and record what we hope is your perfect dive! Whether trying diving for the first time, continuing your diving education or just fun diving, Aquaddiction’s international team of Instructors and resident Course Directors allow us to offer training from Open Water to Instructor with both PADI and SSI in a variety of languages. Our Instructors and guides can draw on a wealth of local diving knowledge to show you everything the Gili’s have to offer: from turtles, stingrays and sharks to pygmy seahorses and if you’re lucky…a passing manta ray! If you want to know more about the dive sites around the Gili’s you can visit our website and receive a 10% discount for booking online. We can also arrange accommodation for you in the newly opened Aquaddiction bungalows located just 20 metres from the beach so you can just turn up, relax and dive.

The staff are super friendly, the equipment is well maintained and the groups are small. I did two dives with Rob and Matt, both of them were great in spotting fish and pointing them out to me. I dived at Shark Point in the morning then Turtle Heaven in the afternoon. Both dive sites were good, Shark Point was less... More

After completing my open water course, more than a year ago and not having dived since I did a refresher course with Aquaddiction along with some fun dives. The diving sites accessible from the island are incredible and only short boat trips away, but it is the people at Aquaddiction who made the diving so much more fun. The instructor... More

We just completed 5 dives with our instructor, Katri. We felt she did a great job making us comfortable in the water, a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of Instruction and guidance. These we're only our fifth-ninth dives, so we are still new and nervous. There were just two of us with her and it seemed like all the other divers... More

My girlfriend did her advanced course here and really loved it. Its not a very big dive school but this means the groups are smaller and you get a lot more attention during the dives. I did a few fun dives and enjoyed very much. Prices on giliT for diving are all the same but they offered a discount on... More

We recently did our refresher dive with Aquaddiction and fell back in love with diving! Our instructor Dave was great, very thorough and helped guide us back into confident diving after nearly 2 years off. We were hooked again! The team of instructors are fantastic, equipment top quality and the dive sites and marine life out of this world. We... More

The diving around this island is world class. You're almost guaranteed to see turtles, amongst the other abundant sea life here. This was my 4th trip to Gili T, and my second time diving with 'Aquaddiction'. All the staff here a very nice and helpful, and diving equipment is in good upkeep and condition. Look 'em up when you come... More

We had a great time diving with the guys at Aquaddiction. I am very new to diving, despite having my AOW and Enriched Air qualifications, and was a late starter, so am not a confident diver by any means. In fact this was my first experience diving from a boat and not from shore. My husband has over 30 years... More

I stayed at the Hostel on the property. Upon arrival I was given a bed in the dorm room that cost me $100000 IRP it was a standard dorm room... The advertising said A.C. and WiFi.

I had a blast at aquaddiction, was supposed to do one dive only but ended up doing the dive and then my advanced course. Amazing staff, pretty rabbits, the flexibility and helpfulness of the staff made me stay a lot longer than intended. I definitely recommend diving with these guys, the small groups allow for requests and flexibility which I... More

I recently completed my Open Water Course with Aquaddiction on Gili. After visiting one of the bigger schools and being just handed a note with prices while enquiring about there courses, I went to Aquaddiction after a friend recommended them. This was definitely the right choice: The whole team was really friendly, explained the layout of the course in detail... More
