Super friendly people, and they're great instructors! I did my first dive in over 5 years with Gili Divers on Air, and it felt so comfortable. The dive was absolutely beautiful! 10/10!

For us GDOA is a Top Dive School with enthusiastic and relaxed people, we started with 1 dive and ended up with 14. Micha, Tait, Christian and Sebastian thanks for the great diving, Anne and Greg for the hospitality. We hope that the damage after the earthquake will not be too bad and that you, as a company, will soon be back in business. Stay strong We will be back July 2019 for even more beautiful dives Nanta and John
L accueil est à la hauteur des fonds marin, juste incroyable. Pour les Français demandez Greg, c est le manager, il est a l écoute et fait tout pour mettre à l aise! Avec mes amis nous sommes allé plonger sur Secret Reef et Bounty Wreck et les explications étaient claires et précises avec beaucoup d humour! J étais déjà allé sur Gili T. mais la vraiment je sais que je ne reviendrai que sur Gili Air car c est le top! Meilleur Club de plongée d Indonésie pour sur!

Will believe that Gili Divers on Air is the world's best place to get Open Water Diver certificate when you are a beginner. The staff and the surroundings are just great. Annie and her staff (Christian & Tait) were very professional and helpful, clear in their formulations so everyone understood the theory. All dives were carried out professionally with safety at the top, so everyone was very comfortable during each dive. It was a great diving experience that soon needs to be retested. Can only provide the best recommendations for diving with Gili Divers on Air.
I spent a week diving with Gili Divers and could not been more happy for chosing this dive center. Familiar and proffessional! A special thanks to team Sweden - Felicia, Julia, Hanna, Sara and Rebecca. Sorry if I forgot anyone, im bad at names! You guys made my stay gold worth!

This is a frigging awesome place to dive!! You MUST come here if you want to dive. And get photos too! The Spanish guy who takes photos is second to none and the underwater scenery is amazing. Alina was very friendly and my favourite instructor that I had on the three days I dived here. I hope to come again someday. Big thumbs up to Alina and the Spanish guy. And also to Nice Nick who got everything started for me.

Right decision going to these guys. Gill was my instructor and she did very well. After the open water and the advanced course I had some fun dives with Niklas who also did a great job. Thanks for the great 7 days with Gili Divers!
We did our rescue diver here and absolutely loved it. Very professional crew before and during diving, very good relaxed atmosphere after the dive. The owners Greg and Annie run a tight ship (safety comes first and the quality of the gear is top notch). They always went for the best dive spots taking into account visibility, current and how crowded the spots tend to get at that time. Our dive instructor Sebastien Toro was simply amazing and somehow manages to keep a perfect b... alance between learning and fun. We stayed in a bungalow in the dive center itself and totally recommend. Spotless and the beds are very comfortable. Ry and Kyle are great managers and go the extra mile to make your stay unforgettable!
Did the open water here in March. The staff were so friendly and helpful even though I can’t really swim. Definitely going to come back for my advanced.

Great place, great people!

This review is a little late .. but better late than never right 😉 the Gili Diver group makes you feel at ease and like you have known them for a while from your first interaction. From the hey from Pablo and John to the pool dive with Patscy and finally diving with Roberto it was tons of fun and helped me overcome a lot of fears, relax and enjoy being under water. As for the underwater world it's beautiful... You have to experience it for yourself. Ihave dived before but this was just different. If you are in doubt if you are gonna survive the dive and not freak out ... this is the group to dive with. Hope to be back sometime soon to get certified and just dive 😉 thank you so much guys.. you have no clue what I achieved through that dive that day 🙂
Best dive shop on the island, the team is super fun and professional! ♥️
Best Dive Shop on Gili Air!😊 The Dive Shop is small and very personal. All of the Instructors and the rest of the Team are very helpful, welcoming and professionel. Especially Instructor Anna and Greg who also manage the place do their best to find every single customer the best dive site to suit their experience and dive level. The groups are small and all the Guides and Instructors are very professionel, patient and have always a smile on their face and you can always come to them with any question you may have about diving. You feel always comfortable and safe with Gili Divers on Air. I can highly recommend them for any level from beginners to Pro's they will make your day and you will have a wonderful experience diving around the Gili Islands!

I had a great experience at Gili Divers On Air! It was my first time scuba diving down to 12m and therefore I was quite nervous and excited. Annie, our instructor today, explained everything very well and I could ask questions whenever I was unsure if I understood right. After the theoretical part we went to the pool, where I had enough time to practise and try again. After that we had a look at the fish we could probably see and the respective hand signs for each type of fish and went to the boat. We had 41mins and during the whole time I could hold her hand to calm and guide me. It was a great experience and I would highly suggest them, you will not regret it!
An amazing place where you feel comfortable and safe. Very knowledgeable staff who explain the theory and safety so it’s easy to understand, learn and put into practice.
Verry Nice diving experience @ gilidiversonair! Anne is a Verry good instructor School is small and personall They really take time for their custommers! Beside this the dives were awesome!
