Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I did a free dive intro course with teacher Cass and my partner and I did some line dives afterwards in the beautiful waters of Gili air. Cass was very knowledgeable and extremely professional throughout - I learnt so much about the physiology and the sport and we had the most incredible experience. It’s amazing what you can achieve and enjoy with the right coaching and mindset. Hats off to Cass! We had an amazing time - thank you so much to you guys! Dom & Cassie

BEST DIVE CENTRE - amazing people, so knowledgeable, kind, fun and tailored to you.

15/10 recommend - especially for people a little unsure about swimming or diving. I had a bad experience at 12 caught in a rip, and cannot believe how relaxed and confident i now feel exploring the ocean. The instructors also understood when my partner had an anxious day with some of the skills we needed to do, meaning we had to take the day off. It was easily postponed, and the next day they changed the approach the next day so he felt comfortable.

We went for the first time last year and didn’t have time for certification, so came back this year for our open water course and some fun dives. The dives are smaller groups and you feel very taken care of.

I tried in another country earlier this year at a bigger dive centre… the choppy waves, strong current and instructors who were lovely but not as patient made everything a lot less relaxing and amazing.

Yayyy! I've done it. I finally completed my free diving course. I'm the longest running student in the history at this free diving school. Most students do it in 3-4 days, I spread it out over 6 weeks.

I love it as you have to learn to go into a meditative state and it's amazing when the diving reflex kicks in and the spleen starts working differently. Was a great challenge and boost for my nervous system.

I went down to 15 metres today, holding my breath for 1.5 minutes each time I dove down practising the techniques I had learnt. It felt so natural in the end. I had to "rescue' and bring up my free diving instructor Cass from the deep as part of the certification.
Cass was an amazing instructor, she was both encouraging and understanding, we laughed lots together and I loved hanging out the dive school. It has a really chilled good vibe there! The owner Bibi helped me with a very special request today, don't think many diving schools be so accommodating. Will do my level 2 free dive once back on Gili

Guys from GA Divers are great professionals and really kind people. We had 2 dives but usually there are at least 3 every day from which you can choose.

Did our SSI Freediving Level 1 with Instructor Cass at Gili Air Divers. We had lots of fun learning as a team and excelling as a team. Cass was very passionate about freediving which translates into her teaching. It was very professional and information were delivered succinctly! Rental equipment was surprisingly great! Did not have issues with the mask and fins.

People at Gili Air Divers are very friendly :) Would recommend if you want to try/learn freediving.

PS: This place offers SCUBA diving and freediving. From the looks of it, they offer nitrox dives too!

Bibi and the team took us on our 3rd ever scuba dive. Harry and Ivan looked after us during our dive, were very informative, relaxed and pointed out different fish during the dive.

Great communication prior to the dive via WhatsApp. Would reccomend. Thank you! :-)

We did a fun dive to Turtle heaven with Gili Air Divers, and we absolutely loved it! The team was experienced, relaxed and friendly, and made sure to make the experience both fun and safe. I, as a recently licensed open water diver, felt completely safe with them
Highly recommended!!

I booked a very last minute dive on Gili Air and contacted a handful of dive shops. Bibi from Gili Air Divers responded within minutes and I appreciated his prompt response so he had fighting chance to earn my business without any competition! He provided clear, thorough and helpful information about the dive shop and its policies so it was very easy for me to make an informed decision to work with him. He also was kind enough help me with some fast boat and lodging logistics.

The sho is bit of a walk from the harbor- its nat a negative, but you should be aware if you have a lot of equipment and luggage. You could hire the horse and buggy taxi as an option. I enjoyed the walk, as I got acquainted with some of the restaurants nearby that I ultimately ate it.

The dive shop property is quite big, well organized. I was assigned Didi as my divemaster who was friendly and had a good eye underwater. The instructor Harry was particularly friendly and we enjoyed talking during the surface interval. The rental gear that GID uses seems to be high quality and well ,maintained.

It was clear that all of the staff from Bibi on down, cared about my experience with the dive shop.

I had a wonderful time and wish them only the best.

We did the one day introductory scuba dive course. Really glad we did, it was a brilliant experience and great fun. Our lead instructor was Alex and when we went for the dive (there was 2 couples) another instructor called Ivan came along.

Really enjoyed the experience and the dive itself was just magical.
