Fun Dives

fun dives Gili airAll dive sites are within a 10-25 minute boat journey, which means you actually spend most of your time diving rather than sitting in a boat! We send only two buddy teams with each guide providing you with a very relaxed diving environment. Oxygen, communications equipment, as well as drinking water are standard safety equipment on board.

What to Expect? 

Most of our dives are drift dives, so the boat picks you up at the end of the dive. Depending on air consumption and depth, most dives are between 45 min and 1 hour in length.  Our dive sites offer a broad range of topography, including sea mounds, slopes, canyons, walls and flatter areas, providing a wide selection for divers of all levels.

All of our dives are guided dives, regardless of your skill level or experience as a diver.  Your guide will help prepare and break down your gear, as well as guide you under the water.  We divide our groups by skill level (OW or Advanced divers) into groups of no greater than 5 divers.  Typically we encounter black and white tip reef sharks, stingrays, octopus, cuttlefish, moray and ribbon eels, a variety of scorpion and lionfish, clams, sea snakes, silly amounts of turtles and a bewildering amount of fish.

What will you see?  

If you're into the small stuff Hans Reef and the Harbor just off Gili Air are great for 'Macro Diving', where frogfish and pipe fish are the highlights.  We also offer dives in Seahorse Bay for divers looking to explore the less crowded sandy slopes of Lombok.  

Thousands of species dwell in these waters, other less commonly seen visitors include mantas, eagle rays, and large pelagics.

When do I need to arrive?

Our 2 dive trips are generally at 9 am, returning at 2pm. We also offer an additional single dive at 2.30pm in busy times. Night dives typically begin at 6:00 pm.  Please plan to arrive at the dive centre at least ½ hour beforehand to arrange equipment, and so we can make all the necessary pre-dive checks and briefings.


The more you dive, the better the discount.  You do not need to give us an exact amount of dives you plan to complete before you are here, we will honor the discount as long as you pre-book your diving via e-mail prior to arriving on Gili Air.
