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.

Geko dive centre is based directly by the beach with only a 20metre walk to the dive boats. The staff were all friendly, welcoming and helpful with a professional attitude to diving and a relaxed attitude between and after dives. Usually a selection of sites visited daily or you can go for 3 or 5 day preset itineraries. Two very... More

I have been diving two days with Geko Dive. I choose it because it was time of celebrations and the local dive centers were closed. The first day I had a really nice DM who showed me a lot of macro in Blue lagoon and Jeplun and I was alone with him! The second day we were only two with... More

I had a fantastic day out with Geko Dive, have visited Geko many times in the past few years and dive with them every time I'm in Padangbai. We visited Manta Point and had a great day - the staff are awesome, boat is great and of course the diving is incredible. Very happy!

I had a great experience diving with Geko; as an advanced diver, I ended up having a 1:1 dive with an instructor diving for over an hour and the dives were really good. Cedric, the owner was very helpful and friendly. This is a good setup with 2-3 boats and professional crew. My friend did his first intro dive which... More
