Dive North Lombok with the Gili Islands and Senggigi,
Lombok is only 30 minutes flight or 1-2 hours by fast-boat from Bali and it offers three very different dive destinations:
the Southern Gili’s and Belongas Bay in South Lombok
These are both very remote locations and a great place to get away from it all. They offer every scuba diver an individual dive adventure: South Gili’s offers relaxed scuba diving whilst Belongas Bay offers exciting “adrenalin dives” with schooling eagle rays and hammerhead sharks.
the fabled Gili Islands in North Lombok
Our dive centre on Gili Air offers a more lively and well balanced mix for an enjoyable dive vacation. The diving offers crystal clear, warm waters, and a gorgeous underwater world which makes diving Gili islands a favourite among holiday seekers.
