I did a DSD - Discover Scuca Diving with Lutwala and upgraded to a PADI Certified Scuba Diver course in a short duration of 3 days; inclusive of theory lessons, written tests, pool training and open water dives in the azure waters of the indian ocean. I have to make a special mention of Anisha, Christian and Mark who were... More

I spent 3 days at the end of October with Lutwala getting my Open Water Diving certification. I can only say what a wonderful experience it was. I pretty much had the instructor, Chris, to myself for all of my training which meant we were able to proceed at a quicker pace. The lutwala team are really flexible, changing the... More

It was great. Our first diving experience in warm water and i couldn't imagine anywhere else. We did some dives in October 2014. The crew was professional helpful and relaxed. You get real Indonesian diving experience. Really nice PADI centre. They provide good equipment and are very flexible. There's no problem rescheduling your dive trips. I'd recommend Lutwala for every... More

Did 5 dives with Lutwala while on Gili T. All of the staff was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. They have a large variety of rental equipment all in good condition. This is not a criticism of the shop but thought I should mention we are "open water certified" which allows us to dive up to 60. I have never had... More

Saw all the positive reviews and went diving with them in August 2013. Did a try dive with them. My instructor was this young Canadian girl who was nice. However, their equipment was clearly in a state of disrepair. When I was underwater, my weights slipped out of the jacket. My instructor found a way to keep the weights by... More

My boyfriend and I stayed and went diving here. The dives were very good considering the current was not strong on that day. My boyfriend did his DSD there and he loved the experience. The other guests didn't show up so he was the focus. They were very professional and willing to take time ellaborating things. I went for two... More

I've been with many diving schools, but these guys are really awesome. Great rental equipment, especially the regulators and BCDs. When it comes to diving, they are amazing at pointing various species out during the dive, even though that's not their main job. Even though they normally do not rent snorkel equipment, they were kind enough to give my girlfriend... More

We stayed at Lutwala for two nights early last week and completed our very first Discover Dive, which was a really wonderful experience. Our instructor Stephen was really informative and reassuring, and I felt very safe the whole time. The Halik Reef is pretty amazing I was told, and we saw three turtles and a moray eel, so I was...
