We are a young couple that has travelled and dived quite a lot, so we can definitely tell that this is one of our favourite places!
We intended to stay only a couple of days, but liked it so much that we spend almost 2 weeks on Gili T. I decided to do the AOW and I had a perfect training - thanks again to Andy! I was lucky to get a 1-1 course and I had so much fun even during the training dives. Big Bubble chose the dive sites quite carefully according to the requirements of the specific training while I still had options to choose from (this is of course dependent on how much time you can spend on the AOW). My partner is an experienced diver, he joined most of my training dives for fun and had great dives every day.
So all in all we would recommend both the island as such and Big Bubble Dive in particular for having an absolutely great time!
If you choose the centre of Gili T as location for your stay, you of course have to be aware of that this is also the party zone (indeed you could hear the music many nights), if you do not want this - choose another place to sleep, but still go for diving with Big Bubble! The team is just super friendly and experienced.
