Scuba Diver Course

SSI Scuba Diver Course is the first half step into the world of diving! Gili Air is the perfect beginner diver destination and Manta Dive Gili Air offers a relaxed island style course to meet your needs.  During this course, you will be taught by one of our highly qualified SSI Instructors.  First, you will master essentials of dive theory and the required skills in confined water in our swimming pool.  Additional time will be allowed for divers to achieve confidence and comfort in the pool with all of the required Open Water Skills.  Then these skills and knowledge will be put into practice with 2 dives in the Open Water at some of our beautiful dive sites located around the 3 Gili Islands of Trawangan, Meno and Gili Air.  Ages 10 and up can become Scuba Divers.
