“Mediocre dive operator”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Staff was curt and didn't make me feel as safe and well looked after as I would have liked. Diving around Air is only 'ok' with only 10m visibility and unhealthy corals - Amed is 100 times better (at least in December/January)

“Introductory diving for kids”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

My sons, aged 13 and 15 had their first diving experience with Oceans 5, doing the Introductory Course. Our youngest son has a history of very minor asthma, which can present a significant risk for diving. Marcel (Kiwi) and Yury (Belgium - not sure of spelling) were so thorough, careful, patient and professional with our boys in a 2 to 2 lesson, that we felt totally confident and comfortable with their mentorship and left them to it. Despite somewhat cloudy waters due to the weather, the boys had a great time and are keen to do it again. I was very impressed with the professionalism provided by Oceans 5 and Marcel and Yury were ripping good blokes too. Well done fellas.

I really enjoyed diving with Oceans 5, all the instructors are professional and great fun. And besides that diving on the Gilis is just spectacular.

“Professionals who know what they are doing”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We just got back from a fantastic stay in Lombok and Gili Air. The main reason to visit the gili's was because our oldest children (12 and 10) wanted to try diving. I am not a diver and from the first email in which I asked information to the last dive and saying good bye I felt comfortable. These people know what they are doing, give you the right information and have the best equipment. What I also liked was that they kept the group small; two instructors for three people in our case. What else are you looking for?
Gili Air is a very relaxed island with great sunsets, the place to unwind from hectic daily life.

“Great divingschool !”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

We dived with them and it was great !
It's situated in the harbour (very nice for snorkeling: pipefishes, seahorses, murens). They have professional, involved and friendly staff.
Because we dived with them we had free use of many facilities (wifi, free drinks whole day, swimmingpool, fins for snorkeling, shower etc).

Small groups with diving and new equipment. And good service in all ways.

So we would recommend this divingschool for sure.

Tip: Make a photodive, they have a very good photo maker !
