Geko Dive first opened in June 1997. It is the longest operating dive centre in Padang Bai. Geko Dive has been a PADI Resort since 1998, and is now a PADI 5 Star Resort and TecRec facility. We are fortunate to have one of Bali's best dive staff. Together, the Geko Dive Team can guide and teach in Balinese, English, French, German, Spanish, Indonesian and Japanese. All of our dive guides are excellent divers, with years of working experience on Bali's dive sites. At the same time, SCUBA remains a passion first and foremost. Diving with Geko Dive has always been fun and serene. To make sure that it stays this way, we are not planning to get any bigger than we already are. Dive factories and diving in large herds are not things that the Geko Dive Team enjoys. Diving should be a personal experience! We therefore keep dive groups small (4 max and often less), with similarly experienced divers together. We believe all our guests deserve the ultimate diving adventure with utmost enjoyment and safety.

Returned to the shop from a double dive and Cedric the owner already knew my name and I hadn't even met him. Ultimate customer service and a great person. Made was my guide and he was awesome, has a great eye for little things. You must do a night dive here, it is amazing! Will be back.

I did 3 fun dives with Geko. 2 in the morning and 1 after lunch. The two dives in the morning with Ben were ok even tough we didn't see much in Blue Lagoon and Jepun Bai. Nice dive master and nice team. However, the third dive after lunch was really disappointing as I don't really enjoy muck diving so... More

Main goal of the trip was to hunt mola mola, but I think followers of the season would know this year is not so good. We were lucky and saw one at Crystal Bay! That aside, Bali diving is so much more than mola! Local sites at Padang Bai (Blue Lagoon, Jepun, White Sand) fillleeedd with interesting critters. So glad... More

We did our open water diving course at Geko. Although I was very scared everyone was patiently waiting for me to be ready. The instructor was friendly and calm. At the end I overcame my fear and good enjoy the beautiful underwater world. Thanks Geko!

Was lucky enough to get the guys from geko dive to take me, my wife and 2 kids (9 & 11) snorkeling with the mantas. Well worth the trip to do it. Managed to see plenty of mantas and gave he kids memories they won't forget. I did not dive on this trip but I did have a good look... More

I had an awesome experience at Geko Dive Bali. The dives are highly qualified, they know what they're doing, but they also know how to have fun. I got my PADI open water here.

We had two very good dives with Geko Dive. The first contact with Cedric and James was really nice and friendly. Their approach to find suitable time slots to avoid the masses was appealing to us. Gear was in good condition. Dive guides were competent and relaxed. Although we didn't see any Mola we had two enjoyable dives. And thank... More
