PADI Dive Courses

gili air Padi courseAt Manta Dive Gili Air, we try to offer you all you could want from your dive education!  We offer all PADI dive courses from beginner to professional, with many specialties available such as Nitrox, Digital Underwater Photography, Sidemount Specialty, and Wreck. In fact, we have 18 specialties available, so if you want to do it we can! (Except Ice Diver, as our Freezers are not big enough!)

We offer the same dive courses on Gili Air as dive centers on the oGilis and will take you to the same dive sites around the Gili Islands, the difference though is that we have been around for longer than most of the other dive centers and with that comes the experience of not just knowing what to do and where to dive, but also knowing how and when to dive at each dive site.

A lot of people come to Gili Air with the idea of staying for a few days and while they are here doing a days diving. Many end up doing the Open Water Course as they loved it so much, but unfortunately many don't have the time and have to leave wishing they had planned more time to learn to dive in Gili Air.  We therefore urge you to do your diving early during your trip so that you have plenty of time to get the most out of it when you here.
