It is important to be a safe and responsible diver while enjoying the underwater environment. At Blue Marlin we take pride in our adherence to international safe diving standards and small group sizes. Each dive is lead by a trained professional who will give your group thorough briefings about the dive site, the maximum depth, maximum bottom time and minimum air supply to terminate the dive. Your Divemaster will also review basic hand signals and discuss any marine life you may encounter.
Our dive boats go out three times per day; at 9:00, 11:30 and 14:30 (except Fridays when we dive at 9:00 and 14:00). Each trip is a single-dive trip as most dive sites are within 10-15 minutes from the dive centre. All dives are drift dives, so the boat will pick you up where you surface with your Divemaster.
Here you will find a description of the dive sites around the beautiful Gili Islands, off of the coast of North Lombok. Every dive site has its own characteristics, specific topography and wildlife. Many of these dive sites are perfect for first timers although there are plenty of opportunities for advanced divers to challenge themselves.
