Owner description: Gili Divers is an Swedish/English-run dive shop with an experienced team of instructors and divemasters. Our instructors have dived in many destinations throughout Indonesia and the world. In addition, they all have certified hundreds of student divers from beginner to professional level. At Gili Divers, we believe in a very personalized and high standard of customer service. We usually dive in small groups up to 4 people to give you the best service! Our equipment is new, we use Aqualung and Apeks, and we have an in-house equipment service technician. We offer all dive courses from beginner up to professional level. Our instructor team is multilingual so we can provide your diving education and course materials in your native tongue. We are very lucky to be located in the fashionable northeast of the island, right next to the best beach on the island and still only a short walk from the hectic central. Gili Trawangan offers great warm water diving, lots of turtles and colourful reef fish! - Come as a stranger - Leave as a friend. On the beach we have a very chilled out beach bar, perfect for a cold beer after diving. There are two types of accommodation, either stay with the other divers at Gili Dive Camp or get a private room in Gili Hotel. All our rooms have AC and fresh water, the private rooms also have hot water, tv/movies & breakfast. Our Komodo live aboard can take you on further adventures over in Flores and Komodo national park. The liveaboards depart from Gili Divers 3 times a month. Please ask us for more information.

“Dive, dive, dive with Gili Divers.”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

There's a bevvy of dive shops to choose from on Gili T; but if you want a quality company that is both safe, fun and professional head to Gili Divers. The Dive Managers (Lauren and Max) are super friendly and professional and the quality of their dive crew is second to none. Right from the introductions, the Divemasters & Instructors are always on hand to answer questions, the provide quality dive briefs, they're multilingual, experienced and the equipment is of the highest quality. Even if you're just walking by the dive shop, the staff are always quick to answer any questions. At some of the other dive shops it was hard to determine who was a tourist and who was the employee. Its also worth mentioning that Neill is the chairperson of GIDA - Gili Islands Dive Association, in the event of an emergency Gili Divers is HQ. Nice to know that even if something goes wrong in paradise there is always someone on stand by to render assistance.Great professional outfit !

“Best in the Gili's”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

If you are after a dive company that is a relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff/guides/instructors but that is run efficiently and safely Gili Divers is for you. Max and Lauren are the managers and they run a tight ship. All of the gear we used was of a very high standard and exceptionally well maintained for Indo! We spent 3 days doing our SSI advanced adventure dives then 2 days of fun diving. At all times we felt safe confident and comfortable under Lauren's instruction and their detailed knowledge of the local sites and marine life was excellent. I have dived with another company previously but I wouldn't dive with anyone else on Gili T now. I also highly recommend Shark point, my favourite site!

“Best Diving School ever”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

I made my PADI diving course in April 2012 at Gili Divers. First I spoke to two other Diving schools at Gili Trawangan, but the people at Gili Divers were the friendliest and the place was the nicest. My teacher Rob Young was the best I could have wished for. Very friendly, funny, understanding, patiently, safe, a lot of knowledge and he found some great animals under water! Generally there is a lot to see at the Gilis! Turtles, sharks, octopus, rays, snails, seestars, nemos, barracudas, humphead parrotfishes, murrays and lot lot more very nice animals and corals. It's definately worth it to travel there for diving! So if you go to the Gili Islands, go diving with Gili Divers - they are very funny, friendly and know the underwaterworld! The school itself is a very nice place with a restaurant on the first floor and one at the beach. Food and drinks are not expensive and very delicious. Perfect for sitting together with the people after diving. It was a great time! Thanks again folks!
