Gili Trawangan, Indonesia

Rescue Course, Upgraded acc. (6 days / 5 nights. Incl. N/A dives)

The Diving
There's a lot of good things to say about the diving surrounding the Gili Islands. There's an incredible macro life that reminds us of treasure hunts (where the treasure is weird and rare marine life). The coral reef is beautiful on the walls where the currents are not too strong for it to grow large and ridiculously colourful. And where the current IS strong, divers will be allowed to try how a real drift dive feels, whilst keeping an eye out for the great manta rays or dolphins.

But, during this course... the rescue course... We will guarantee that you won't be too focused on the marine life. Instead, you will have your eyes on your fellow divers and instructor! By practicing scenarios and exercises, this course will be building your skills as a diver and especially as a good buddy. It is no joke that this is listed as one of the most giving courses in the career of a diver. It is hard work, and loads of fun. So why do the course in Gili Trawangan? Well, the dive center is very chilled and professional, the island is good fun, the dive sites are perfect teaching conditions and oh… did we mention the marine life?!!

Above water Gili Trawangan is a backpacker mecca. The island is very relaxed and laid-back, with countless little beachside cafes serving elaborate seafood buffets, fresh salads and very good western and Asian food. Best of all, there are no cars or motorbikes to disturb the peace. The white sand beaches are without a doubt better than anywhere on Bali or Lombok. There is a strong environmental focus on the reefs after they have been damaged in the past. While once people came to dive, snorkel and party, a more up-market tourist is showing up now and while it is still all about the beach, there are many more options to wine and dine or hang out and meet new friends.

Your resort
Will be your cozy new home! By checking you in at a comfortable and lovely bungalow conveniently situated next to the dive center, your Gili experience and your diving course is complete. Breakfast is included and served at the resort. Your room will have air-con and hot shower for your convenience. At the resort, you will have just a few meters to the beach. The bungalows can be fully booked in high season. It is good to book 3 months in advance.
