“Scuba Froggy - Senggigi w Akem / Farid”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

My family (Myself, Husband, Toddler, Grandparents and Teenaged brother) just returned from Lombok. My husband and brother surfed the southern point and the west coast while the rest of us relaxed by the pool in several beautiful resorts. When we arrived in Senggigi we all went Scuba Diving (and snorkelling) with Farid & Akem from Scuba Froggy (Office located on the beach near the sheraton). Everything was perfect, Akem drove us safely up the west coast to the boat, while giving us a warm and friendly guided tour!

Herman and the boat crew greeted at the motorised outrigger boat that took us to the Gili Islands, these guys were friendly and helpful and we felt very safe.

Farid (Dive Master @ Froggy) was experienced, passionate and a talented teacher. An absolute pleasure to dive with. We dived on a ship wreck, secret garden, Hans reef. All were out of this world - thousands of fish, lots of turtles, amazing coral formations and perfect visibility.

If you are considering diving or snorkelling these are the guys to do it with! Safe, skilled, friendly and great with kids!

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

Crew were friendly and fun loving. They always put safety as their main priority, which is very important. They really take good care of their customers and the equipment were still well-maintained. Prior to my trip, I exchanged email with them and the replies were prompt. As I had a very short stay in lombok, Gul (the owner, apparently), offered me a few suggestions for me to fully utilize my short stay.

My friend and I had a lot of fun when we did our fun dives with Herman, the only local dive master. Both of us felt extremely safe when we dived with him. We met some new friends during our dive trip. I fell off the ladder accidentally on the boat and had some minor cuts. The crew were attentive and caring. Bottled Water were offered regularly before and aft dives.

Farid was nice to give us a little bit of perk in the pricing, which we were very thankful!

This is the first time I'm writing a review, because these guys really deserve it. Well done and keep it up!

Hello gneirrac,

Thanks for your kind review.

It is always great to read that divers enjoyed their day with us and appreciate our services.

Next time you will know how to climb on a ladder with two hands and not with only one hand and a towel and so on ;)

Wish to see you soon for a longer stay and share some more dives.

Sunny regards,
Guillaume.

“Great place to dive and learn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Scuba Froggy. On vacation in Lombok, we used their Senggigi and Gili Air locations. They are located at the Sheraton in Senggigi right on the beach with a great set of facilities. I took the Open Water course over three days and it was very well run and pleasant. The best part is the personal attention from your instructor which in my case was primarily Guillaume, the owner of the business. He is a great guy and a very very experienced diver so you're definitely in good hands. Compared to some of the other diving outfits in the area, the personal attention received here is a huge selling point since you are basically spending all of your time one-on-one with your instructor as opposed to learning in a group setting which can be slower and less effective. Their prices may be slightly (maybe ~5%) higher but the personalized experience and quality of service more than cover the extra cost which when converted is only a few USD anyway. I would strongly recommend learning here or taking advanced classes here since it is such a good deal for an excellent service.

“Great but expensive.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

Scuba Froggy took us in a shuttle bus directly from our hotel to a boat that took us to the Gilis. The guides were all very friendly and experienced and were quick to point out the best diving and snorkelling spots. However I did think that the price was too much.

Hello TwistedOrange2013,

Thanks for your time to write us a comment.

It is a pleasure to read that you enjoy your day with us.

Regarding our price policy we have almost the same price than other dive providers in Senggigi area however we aim to provide a much better service than what is done around which explain the small difference.

Wish to meet again soon to share some more good time around the Gili islands and why not next time try our dive center in Kuta Lombok!

Sunny regards,
Guillaume.
