Try Scuba Diving

Hawksbill Turtle Open Water Training DivesTry Scuba Diving is the first step into the SSI world of diving. In this one day program, you will be taught the basics of dive theory by one of our professional diving Instructors.   The essential diving skills needed will be introduced and practiced in our swimming pool with additional time as necessary to gain comfort and confidence in the water.   Finally, you will put it all together for your exciting first dive in Open Water. The professionally guided dive will take place at one of the many beautiful dive sites located around the  Gili Islands.  This is the perfect one day adventure for those with limited time on the island or wanting just a taste of scuba diving on Gili Air.  

Chances are good during the dive that you will see one of our commonly seen Turtles, and everyone's favourite the Anemone Clownfish (more commonly known as Nemo!) with other favourites such as the Pallet Surgeon Fish (Dory again for the fans of Finding Nemo), puffer fish, lion fish, plus many many more.
