Our opinion on Gili Air Divers:
Authentic and passionate are two words that sum up beautifully the two Gili Air Diver centers. Yes, one team, one concept, two centers…. to better serve you. Located on the Gili Air Island in Indonesia, for 7 years now, the owners, Bibi and Camille, along with their team have been organizing for divers of all levels and nationalities everything SSI and PADI have to offer, with some nice extras on the side. You can spend one full week or more at Gili Air Divers, no problem—in fact, it would be a great pleasure!
Gili Air Divers has, little by little, started to specialize in naturalist diving, i.e. macro fauna and underwater photography. Biology and marine ecology nights are planned with screening and debates as well as photo-video workshops to broaden the knowledge of beginners to the most seasoned divers. Other little pluses to mention: Sidemount training and the ever popular “mandarinfish” dives. What’s more, two of the club instructors train other instructors in SSI and freediving so if you ever wanted to take a leap into one of the best jobs in the world or into the "true" world of silence, you found your place!
As far as the eco part is concerned, Gili Air Divers is a member of Gili Eco Trust and Project AWARE. The club offers muck diving excursions, especially around Lombok. Places are of course kept secret to preserve them—an idea which we hope will spread!
The original center is to the east of Gili Air on the grounds of the Sunrise Resort. The tropical and colorful deco goes very well with the relaxed, friendly atmosphere—the perfect setting for a family vacation or a romantic getaway. As for the restaurant, the chef is French and prepares Eastern and Western cuisine as well as fresh pastry in the morning: what more could you ask for? On the other hand, the new center just opened in 2014… on the western side of the island. With a Sunset view on one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, it is characterized by its design and simplicity and blends well into its natural surroundings. The choice is yours!
In any case, in both centers the atmosphere is relaxed. We also play volley or 'petanque' after diving. In a nutshell, the idea is to have fun. At Gili Air Divers, you arrive a stranger and leave as a friend. Highly recommended!
