As soon as we arrived at the dive shop, Alex and Dante received us with a warm welcome and before we knew it we were chatting for almost an hour! The diving was great. They chose a very nice spot and after having a bad diving experience, this time we felt very safe under water. We really enjoyed diving and... More

My daughter picked Karang divers to learn how to dive after reviewing in depth on Tripadvisor. She was attracted by the great reviews which seemed to go on about a very personal service, with small groups and often one on one courses. She booked in advance but when we got there it wasnt even open! They didnt even email her... More

Completed a couple of dives at the end of may. What a great experience, completed a night dive and deep dive with alex. He helped to make us both feel at ease on what was our 7th and 8th dives. The guys are really friendly and patient and I would recommend them to anyone thinking of diving on Gili air.... More

Thankfully i dived with another shop and they could... More

Hi there, Alex and I (Dante) are really sorry that there was no one at the Karang Divers shop. We stopped working for the shop at the end of August. (we were managers, not owners of the shop). We did expect the dive shop to continue, however we know that the hotel is going through a very difficult time and... More

I did the Discover Scuba 3-hour session and the whole experience far exceeded my expectations. The guys that run this diving school are super friendly, great fun and they really look out for you! I was the only one booked on for the afternoon so it was a private one to one session with Alex who was absolutely first class... More

We chose Karang Divers because they were close by and a small operation. Alex guided us on 6 drift dives and we encountered a good variety of marine life and lots of 'small stuff' which was unique. The dive centre is professionally run and the equipment well maintained. I can recommend their service and would go back.

Had an absolute blast and all the instructors were so nice! Should probably mention Steven who I did most my dives with, a true enthusiast... More

Hey Cristina, Thanks for the wonderful feedback! Remy and I had a great time taking you diving, and you are right, it is a little nerve-wracking at first, but you were a real natural in the water!
