About Gili Divers

We are an English-Swedish run dive center established in 2010. While maintaining a young and relaxed vibe we are known for our experienced instructors, lively atmosphere and quality diving experience.

Our basic ethos is to have as much fun as possible whilst providing high standard of security. Keeping group sizes small allows us a great flexibility when it comes to individual and private group special wishes.

Gili Divers management team with a combined experience in the dive industry of over 40 years provides a reasuring level of operational oversight. Our internationally diverse instructor and divemaster team comprise seven nationalities and cover nine languages.

We provide a full range of diving experiences and certification programs from absolute beginner to dive professional through three different dive certification agencies; SSI, PADI and TDI.

We are a full self-sufficient operation with our own accommodation, swimming pools, dive boats and compressors. Our location could not be any better as Gili Divers is located directly on the beach.

In order to offer access to a large number of dive sites around the Gili Islands we maintain a fleet of three dive boats. This allows us to dive a minimum of five discrete dive sites per day ensuring appropriate dive sites and conditions are available to all levels of divers.

    Thanks to Nils, Jessica and Andreas( apologies for the spelling my Spanish friend) for a fun and exciting shore drift dive. We flew over the landscape with a 2knt current stopping long enough to see a turtle and the largest green Moreau eel I’ve ever seen. The enthusiasm of Johns merry dive crew overcame any of the quake tremors to stay focused on sharing the diving paradise out their door. Come on down and enjoy the diving while helping get this great shop back into the roaring season. You will enjoy every minute.

    This is a frigging awesome place to dive!! You MUST come here if you want to dive. And get photos too! The Spanish guy who takes photos is second to none and the underwater scenery is amazing. Alina was very friendly and my favourite instructor that I had on the three days I dived here. I hope to come again someday. Big thumbs up to Alina and the Spanish guy. And also to Nice Nick who got everything started for me.

  • Right decision going to these guys. Gill was my instructor and she did very well. After the open water and the advanced course I had some fun dives with Niklas who also did a great job. Thanks for the great 7 days with Gili Divers!

    This review is a little late .. but better late than never right 😉 the Gili Diver group makes you feel at ease and like you have known them for a while from your first interaction. From the hey from Pablo and John to the pool dive with Patscy and finally diving with Roberto it was tons of fun and helped me overcome a lot of fears, relax and enjoy being under water. As for the underwater world it's beautiful... You have to experience it for yourself. Ihave dived before but this was just different. If you are in doubt if you are gonna survive the dive and not freak out ... this is the group to dive with. Hope to be back sometime soon to get certified and just dive 😉 thank you so much guys.. you have no clue what I achieved through that dive that day 🙂

  • Had it not been for Wayne and the team at Gili Divers, I would have never been able to experience scuba diving considering such a scared chicken that I am. I had a lovely experience and I only have them to thank for it!

    By far the best dive shop in ASIA, I went from Zero to Hero with Gili Divers. Starting with my Open water course, all the way up to Dive master. And now I am an Instructor. Gili divers is like one big family, always willing to help each other out and always going the extra mile. There dive shop isn't over sized like most others, so you get the more sociable vibe. They have the biggest boats on the gilis and really good boat captains. If you're thinking of doing your Dive Master training then I highly recommend them.
