Did our Advanced Open Water PADI course here and loved every minute of it. Very professional dive shop with good equipment and experienced divers. They pride themselves in only taking out small groups at a time, so you feel safer and get a more personalised dive experience. My boyfriend and I did our Advanced course with Hannes, who was an...

Such a great experience for scuba diving. The dive guides are very professional and made the experience fantastic. We stayed at the accommodation which made early dives super convenient. Very clean, good size rooms and a beautiful outdoor shower

Big bubble is a good diving club for english speakers. Small groups, no max lenght dive, possibility to chose the dive site if you come one day before. The team is friendly and experienced. I would recommend it. Though, I would not recommend gili islands for diving. You can easily see turtles and sharks but the corals have been damaged...

I chose for me and my partner to dive with Big Bubble because upon emailing them with questions, Philippa was exceptionally helpful and detailed in her response - regardless whether it was a template it felt personal and she answered all my questions thoroughly. I also enjoyed the idea that the groups were small making it intimate and inclusive -...

The dive school is the cheapest in the area on a very nice beach, 10min walk from shark bay. The instructors could be more helpful and informative as this was all new to us. Got the feeling they wanted us in and out a bit. But we still had a really good time

Me and my friend wanted a personal dive without a big group as we hadn't dived in a while, we were recommended Big Bubble from Lonely Planet. We were able to dive with Andra and Friman, two very friendly, knowledgable and trusting instructors! Just the four of us! I was a little nervous and they made our dive trip unforgettable!...

We last minute asked if we could do a discovery dive (I have done it once before, my boyfriend never has), and they fit us in! We had to rush through some of the briefings and lessons, but our instructor (Rasmus) was awesome and attentive. The dive was really cool despite slightly poor visibility, and he made us feel totally...

Thanks to the brilliant boat crew and dive masters for getting us back into diving after a few years break. The crew were fantastic and looked after us well, helping us with the gear etc.. Both dive masters were knowlegeable and easy going, with a good pace and helped us to refresh our skills. As for the diving - turtles...

I had a great experience diving with this company. I did one fun day dive and one night dive. Everyone had a laid-back attitude, the instructors and guides were very knowledgable, and the dive trips were very efficient (quick to get gear setup and in the water). I felt very safe and had a BLAST. I cannot recommend the night...

We have been given an award from PADI for "Outstanding services" as a dive shop for over ten years and are a PADI 5 Star Centre. We are also members of the Gili Island Diving Association (GIDA) which was set up by the owner of Big Bubble to help maintain the high level of standards and safety whilst diving in all shops that are members of GIDA.
