About Buddha Dive
Buddha Dive PADI 5 Star Dive Resort is located just a few minutes south from the Trawangan's Harbour. The school started in 1981 under the name of Dive Indonesia, being the first PADI dive center in the island, but in 2008 changed the name to Buddha Dive, in reference at the smiley Buddha. The installations offer an unique atmosphere in the front beach of one of the most famous Gilis. As a PADI 5 Star Dive Center, Buddha Dive provides a full range of PADI courses, from Discover Scuba Diving until Professional Level as well as guided fun dives. The dive resort runs 2 dive excursions per day, and occasionally a third dive can be organized. There are three boats that departure just a few steps from the school, making the whole trip easy and smoothie. The professional local crew in combination with the multilingual team of instructors guarantee the best service for all types of customers, students or experienced divers.

We took immersion lessons a couple of years ago. Good instructors, explain in detail and understandably. The equipment looks good. We dived only 1 time and it was impressive!

Such a fantastic place to learn to dive. I've since dived with a few companies and Buddha Dive is hands down the best one I've experienced. My instructor Anne was super lovely, patient and made sure I understood everything before going into the water. Whilst under the water, she made an effort to point out loads of really interesting marine life (NUDIBRANCHS <3) and went over the skills numerous times. I left feeling really confident in my abilities and excited to do more dives. Can't wait to come back and do my advanced!

This team is awesome! My husband and I completed our open water diving certification with them and we could not have been more pleased. My instructor Annie was great! I really struggled with equalizing and she was sooo patient with me and helped me successfully descend after extra practice and successfully complete the course! Further, the whole team is welcoming, passionate about diving and helping others enjoy diving and their whole experience as well!

Absolutely the best experience in my life! I will never forget my first dive. Totally fall in love with it. Thanks to the all team of Buddha Dive (they r incredible!), but the biggest one to my instructor- Esteban! For teaching, helping and the patience. He’s amazing person and professional and calm instructor. Just the best. Master! Nothing less, nothing more. They don’t deserve 5 stars. They deserve for 100! See you next year in advanced course! Muchas gracias Esteban!
