Gili Air, Indonesia

Adv. Open Water Course (4 days / 3 nights. Incl. 5 dives)

The Diving
The Advanced Adventurer Course is a great step in the world of diving. Your skills will be sharpened and your comfort level in the water will be even greater than before. It’s a really cool course, and with all the different dive sites to choose from, your Advanced Adventurer Course is guaranteed to be interesting and special. Together with your instructor you will choose 5 special dives to make out your course, and on this particular destination you'll be able to choose from the full range. Look forward to your deep dive on the great walls of coral, and to the great challenge of the navigation dive where you will higher your level of awareness on the reef.

Besides that, be aware that Indonesia is home to more than 3,000 species of marine life and on this destination… you will FOR SURE witness a great number of these species during your course! Don’t forget to look at your instructor from time to time… 

Also, scout the surface of the water for jumping dolphins and look up during the dives in the hope of spotting a manta ray or in the right season -  the weird but really amazing Mola Mola. 

Above water Gili Air differs quite a lot Gili Trawangan. Over the past years, Gili Air has become more popular with those wanting to escape the party atmosphere and buzz associated with Gili Trawangan. The island is tiny, but very relaxed and pretty. Like on Gili Trawangan, you will find no real roads here. Only sandy paths where the only type of transportation is horse carts and bicycles. You can find all types of restaurants and bars, but all with a really chilled atmosphere. When you are tired of hanging out in your hammock on the beach (which is what you do here) go searching for the secret little places in the back streets where the local food is cooked to perfection for cheap cheap bucks!

Your resort
Is copying the concept from our dive center on Gili Trawangan. There’s a pool to cool down in, a lovely restaurant (breakfast is included) and an awesome hang-out area with hammocks. The beach is less than 10 meters away (or the water is, the resort is actually on the beach) and has a breathtaking view over Mount Rinjani and Lombok. Pure uhmmness! 

Your Room
In season, our little resort gets very booked out, and we can't guarantee you a bungalow. But all rooms are very clean, cozy and with a little private terrace. Room facilities include twin or double bed, Air Con, hot water and safety deposit.
