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.

Awesome dive shop. These guys are the best

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

We did 3 days of diving with Geko Dive Bali. The boss and the dive masters are very friendly and careful, everything is well explained, which is important for us since we are beginners. We went to Manta Point: an amazing experience. I would absolutely recommend and return to Geko Dive.

I did my Open Water course at Geko Dive with Rico as instructor. I was the only student, which was great because everything was in my own pace and I got 100% of the instructor's attention while learning and diving. I did my theory with a video, which was way better more convenient than reading the whole book, in my... More

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

The diving here is amazing. There are plenty of different sites very close with an amazing variety of macro life. Moreover, the location allows easy access to... 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!

My wife and I did our Open Water Certification with Geko Dive and the experience was amazing from start to finish. They are extremely friendly, knowledgeable and professional.
