“Safety first, excellent service!!!!”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

When you come to Gili Trawangan in Indonesia you should visit the small french dive shop on the main road of Gili T. I had so much fun diving with them. The divemasters are locals with more than 15 years diving experience on Gili T. and they really know every corner and every hidden fish personally. Every time they find an octopus, a turtle, a little crab or a nudi branch they try to reach your attention to show you the fascinating underwaterworld. You can even see them smiling with their regulator on. And for your safety they are excellent. They calm you down, help you getting ready, explain you everything about the dive, how the divesite looks like and remind you on all the hand signals you are using etc. so diving with them makes you feel relaxed and you cant even wait to jump into the water. During diving you are fullfilled with so much joy because the divesites are so diverse and you stay in small groups. The whole staff is so friendly and helpful, even the capitane smiles and I really liked hanging around with the guys who are doing their divemaster training there. You are welcome from the very first minute on and it makes you feel you are all one big family with their french charme and humour.
Go there and I promise that you dont wanna leave ;-)

“2nd year with DSM and again a great experience!”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

We have been diving with DSM in 2011 and 2012 and we can highly recommend this dive center and its wonderful team! Ong and Tony are very experienced professional divemaster and perfect guides for the Gilis. They take very well care of all details and spread a lot of fun. We were staying near Sengiggi. The daily transfer by car and boat as well as the reservation were perfectly managed by Wiliam and his team.

We were able to see turtles, a pygmy sea horse, bumphead parrod fishes, lion fishes, stonefish, octopus, many different nudibranches, morey eals, garden eels, ghost pipe fish, snakes, pufferfishes, the bounty wreck and many other attractions. The visibility and conditions were very good on most dives.

Summarizing we enjoyed our time with DSM a lot! Many thanks to the whole team of DSM!

Best regards,

Kirsten & Ingo

“Professional, safety oriented & a bunch of fun divers!”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

I was pleasantly surprised that this small dive operator could deliver much more than what I was looking for. I was in good hands right from my online enquiry. Everything was thought out for me and the entire trip was hassle free. My room in Puri Bunga was huge with sea view, my daily pick ups were on time, airport transfers were absolutely efficient.

The dive shop was kept smaller than most of the other shops in Gili Trawangan, so that they could focus on the guests' diving experience. Resident dive guides Ong and Anding, brought me through the wide varieties of underwater creatures in Gilis. All my dives were nothing short of pigmy seahorses, sharks, huge turtles and colourful crustaceans.

Thank you William and Team. I really enjoyed my dive week in Gilis. Hope to see you guys again soon!

“Gili Trawangan- paradise revisited.”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

I returned to gill trawangan in October 2011 with my partner and four children. It was a far cry from traveling there in 1988 as a 22 year old backpacker. It is still an amazingly beautiful place with spectacular views over to Mt Rinjani on Lombok. Relatively easy to get to from Bali and well worth the visit if you are looking for a place to unwind, snorkel or dive, and eat in some great restaurants.
