The 23+ spots visited by recreational divers have been joined in the last few years by at least the same number of dive sites in deeper water, the vast majority of them within a fifteen minutes boat ride off the beach.  You are welcome to join our daily recreational sites for decompression diving or our dedicated technical dive boat that visits tech-only locations.

The Gilis are blessed with beautiful technical diving because the ocean around us drops off to over 1200m and with the steady currents bring a variety of marine life including sharks, rays, turtles and pelagic fish. Around the 40m range the islands shelf drops off and we have stunning walls starting at 40m - 100m, which because of their depth are only visited by technical divers and are therefore in pristine condition.
