Big bubble is a good diving club for english speakers. Small groups, no max lenght dive, possibility to chose the dive site if you come one day before. The team is friendly and experienced. I would recommend it. Though, I would not recommend gili islands for diving. You can easily see turtles and sharks but the corals have been damaged... More

I chose for me and my partner to dive with Big Bubble because upon emailing them with questions, Philippa was exceptionally helpful and detailed in her response - regardless whether it was a template it felt personal and she answered all my questions thoroughly. I also enjoyed the idea that the groups were small making it intimate and inclusive -... More

The dive school is the cheapest in the area on a very nice beach, 10min walk from shark bay. The instructors could be more helpful and informative as this was all new to us. Got the feeling they wanted us in and out a bit. But we still had a really good time

Me and my friend wanted a personal dive without a big group as we hadn't dived in a while, we were recommended Big Bubble from Lonely Planet. We were able to dive with Andra and Friman, two very friendly, knowledgable and trusting instructors! Just the four of us! I was a little nervous and they made our dive trip unforgettable!... More

We last minute asked if we could do a discovery dive (I have done it once before, my boyfriend never has), and they fit us in! We had to rush through some of the briefings and lessons, but our instructor (Rasmus) was awesome and attentive. The dive was really cool despite slightly poor visibility, and he made us feel totally... More

Both dive masters were knowlegeable and easy going, with a good pace and helped us to refresh our skills. As for the diving - turtles... More

I had a great experience diving with this company. I did one fun day dive and one night dive. Everyone had a laid-back attitude, the instructors and guides were very knowledgable, and the dive trips were very efficient (quick to get gear setup and in the water). I felt very safe and had a BLAST. I cannot recommend the night... More

Me and my friend arranged a fun dive with this company and it was amazing. Both of us had the boat and instructor to ourselves. The marine life was brilliant and we saw Turtles, Mantis Shrimp, White tipped reef shark etc. This was my first dive of a boat, and I was made to feel relaxed and confident in this... More
