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...

I went out diving with Big Bubble last week for 2 dives. I love it, the group ratio was small so its nice and make the dives enjoyable. The boat crew was really helpful and the instructors and the dive guide are really knowledgeable and experienced. Thank you Sebastian for the dives, and Firman, Felipa for the hospitality. For sure...

Me and my friend arranged a fun dive with this company and it was amazing. Both of us had the boat and instructor to ourselves. The marine life was brilliant and we saw Turtles, Mantis Shrimp, White tipped reef shark etc. This was my first dive of a boat, and I was made to feel relaxed and confident in this...

We had a great first dive and a really fun instructor called Made, he really took care of us. We're going back to do our PADI. We went out and got drunk together after (obviously optional). We saw all the cast of Nemo!!

I would highly recommend Big Bubble Dive school. If you are considering to start your scuba activities after a day with them you'll not stop. Firman, our teacher, has been very professional and made the course very enjoyable. Anna, the owner, is the gem of that shop.

This our third visit to Big Bubble, first was in 2013 for a fun dive with our kids and it was the professionalism of the team back then that brought us back in Feb 2015 after we had done our open water with another company on Nusa Lembongan and then again in Oct 2015. We really appreciated the small groups,...

This place is truly a hidden gem on the island (right across from the turtle sanctuary). It has more of a relaxed and real vibe instead of the crazy crowded (almost corporate feel) of the other dive shops. The equipment was up to date, the facilities were clean and comfortable and the pool was one of the larger and cleaner...

We recently did 5 dives (including a refresher and an advanced open water module) at Big Bubble. We pre-booked via email with Philippa, which was very easy and efficient, despite our varying levels of qualifications. The dives were all really well organised and we were only ever in small groups(!!). The courses were seamlessly integrated into fun diving. All of...

My partner and I took our open water course with big bubble dive school July/August. I would highly recommend this school to anyone considering scuba activities on the Gili Islands. Our teachers were Victor and Jack who were very professional and made the course feel safe and also thoroughly enjoyable/fun. The dives themselves were awesome, Gili was a great place...

First of all diving in Gili T is hard to mess up. The ocean was spectacular and conditions were excellent. This was about my twentieth dive and was stoked to be in indonesia. We couldn't help but feel a bit taken advantage of because we basically payed double so that we could go to a certain dive site. If you...

BigBubbleDive, Manager at Big Bubble Dive Official, responded to this review

Thanks for your review - Sorry to hear that you felt taken advantage of - unfortunately anyone who does not have a diving license is required by PADI to first undertake a briefing and skills session with an instructor, thus making the diving a bit more expensive than it would be for a licensed diver (even if they may have...

PLEASE NOTE AS BIG BUBBLE NO LONGER HAS BUNGALOWS, WE HAVE A NEW TRIPADVISOR PAGE UNDER 'Big Bubble Dive'. At Big Bubble, we are very proud of the fact that we have been in Gili Trawangan since July 2001, making us one of the longest running dive centres on this island.

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. Big Bubble offers a very high level of service for both fun dives and courses, using brand new equipment and guaranteeing small groups for our divers, as well as a fun and professional atmosphere. ... more   less
