About Blue Marlin Dive Gili Air
Blue Marlin presents the latest addition to the family - Blue Marlin Air. Our newest PADI 5* dive resort is situated on the sunset side of Gili Air, known for its natural beauty and an effortlessly slow pace of life. Just 15 minutes away from the island’s centre and harbour, our quiet location will make you feel as if you have the island and sunset all to yourself. While we've only just opened in June 2016, we have the knowledge and experience earned by being the original dive centre of the Gilis, now operating for over 25 years. Just as you'll find at our other dive centres, we stand out with our personal approach, quality service and family feel amidst a small, multilingual team of inspired diving professionals. We offer all PADI scuba diving courses, from beginner to Divemaster, daily fun diving and beachside bungalows. Diving: As a PADI 5* Dive Resort, we offer daily fun diving as well scuba courses in multiple languages. We believe in small groups, never exceeding a ratio of 4 divers per guide, in order to reduce underwater crowding and allow for a more personal feel. All of our equipment is excellently maintained Aqualung gear, most of it brand new. Our 80 HP traditional Indonesian outrigger boat, Charlie, provides comfortable rides to and from the dive sites. Dive trips depart from directly in front of the dive shop and most dive sites are about 10-20 minutes from our resort, meaning that you spend more time underwater and less time on the boat. Choose between over 20 different sites, each with its own character. From sloping reefs and walls, bio rocks and wrecks - the Gilis offer plenty of diverse underwater environments. You can easily spot turtles, reef sharks, morays, sting rays, octopus and macro critters. The Location: We are situated on the sunset side of Gili Air, just 15 minutes away from Lombok or 2 hours from Bali via speedboat. Gili Air is known for its natural beauty, turquoise waters and effortlessly slow pace of life. Our island features bicycles and horse carriages in lieu of motorised transportation and you’ll find that foregoing your shoes is the obvious choice. Just 15 minutes away from the island’s centre and harbour, our quiet location will make you feel as if you have the island and sunset all to yourself. The Resort: Our beachside resort offers the perfect place to enjoy your holiday free from crowds. We offer 6 beautifully designed bungalows amidst a lush, tropical garden. Our 16sqm bungalows, just a stone's throw from the private beach, feature a king sized bed and private terrasse overlooking the resort pool. Air conditioning, TV, fresh hot water shower, mini fridge and plenty of storage space are standard in each of the spacious rooms. Our 22m swimming pool is split into different sections to best suit our scuba training needs as well as minimizing noise and distractions for our resort guests.
