For certified divers, there are more than 25 dive sites located around the 3 Gili's. These consist of drop-offs, slopes, drift dives, and of course the tremendously rich bio-diversity in marine life that Indonesia is famous for. There's a dive for everyone...! Experience the adrenalin rush of diving with white tip reef sharks, huge sea turtles, barracudas, manta rays, moray eels, frog fishes, pipefish and more.
Gangga Divers Diving Centers are located in Gangga Island Resort & SPA (Manado, North Sulawesi), Papua Paradise Eco Resort (Raja Ampat, West Papua), Lotus Bungalows (Candidasa, Bali), Villa Almarik (Gili Trawangan, Lombok) and Sampaguita Resort (Moalboal, Cebu – Philippines)
The dive boats are of traditional outrigger style and equipped with O2, towels, drinking water and fruits plus a camera wash tub.
Most of our dive sites are not far from the islands, all teaming with marine life and beautiful corals in depths ranging from 5 meters to 40 meters. Its very possible to make 2 or dives and still have plenty of time in your day for relaxing on the island's white sandy beaches.
Dive Sites around the Gili Islands
There are over 3,500 marine species living in the reefs and seas of Indonesia. In comparison to the Great Barrier Reef (1,500 species) and Red Sea (600 species), 25 % of all reefs in the world are in Indonesia. The many drop-offs, plateaus and slopes around the Gili's reflect a good cross-section of what Indonesia has to offer.
All our dive sites are located 10 to 25 minutes boat ride from the dive centre. This means that if you want to go for a dive, you actually do spend more time in the water than on the boat. Gangga Divers' boats leave from the beach directly in front of the resort and then return to the resort at the end of your dive. It's quick, its easy ands it's simple.
Around the three Gili Island (Gili Air, Gili Meno, Gili Trawangan), you will find more than 20 different dive sites and there are new reefs being explored all the time.
