We can highly recommend Lutwala Dive. All of the dive masters are very helpful and do the best for your diving adventure. You get here a lot of different amazing diving spots. Chris is one of the dive master and his knowledge about the marine life is extraordinary. We are very glad and happy to met this crew, especially Chris.

As a solo traveller, I ended up being quite picky in how I chose where to dive on Gili T. Many of the dive centres along the east side of the island (near the port where you first arrive) can be tempting as they appear to have good deals and lots of the staff approach you. However, if you want... More

Where to begin? Do you like out of body, underwater experiences? Do you like having your wildest dreams come true in the magical underbelly of Mother Earth's liquid playground? Do you like unicorns?

As complete newbies to diving we had the best time learning to dive Chris. We were there off season and since Lutwala offers small groups we ended up having a lesson with just the two of us which was awesome. We did our open water and had so much fun we ended up doing some night dives and our enriched... More

We stayed 3 days with the lutwala team and did 2 dives a day. All dives have been very various and quite amazing. Ramon makes you feel save from the minute you meet him. He is very professional and explains what we can expect to see under water. He even got us find the shark on the days where others... More

I had already done other diving initiations in the Caribbean, but this one was way better! The instructor, Ramon, was very experienced and really knew how to teach. We spent some time in the pool to make sure we would be prepared to any circumstance. Despite the weather was not the best when we went to the sea, the visibility... More

Lutwala, like all other shops on the Gilis, can't be judged on the beauty of the islands' sites .. Many of which are breathtaking (sorry). I think safety should be the main concern when choosing a dive shop. Lutwala Dive is very much concerned with the safety of its staff and customers. They also have pool onsite for those wishing...

I did a scuba refresh course with Chris after a long time off of diving. He's really personable and I had a great experience. The lesson on the beach was thorough and detailed, but still interesting and entertaining. In the pool Chris took the extra time to sort my breathing and swimming out: I always get through my air very... More
