FUN DIVE

FUN DIVE THE GILI ISLANDS

Diving in this region is all about comfort. The water is warm (28 – 30°), clear (15-40m visibility), and all dive sites are just a short boat ride away (5-20 minutes). 3W Dive goes out diving 3 times per day so you can plan your diving around your holiday, with plenty of stops in between to spend time with your loved ones.

Whether you’re an advanced diver interested in macro photography or a beginner dreaming of diving with turtles, you’ll get the exact kind of dive you want. From muck dives in Lombok’s black volcanic sands, wrecks guarded by reef sharks, giant pinnacles that are home to equally giant green turtles, adventure night dives, and smooth drift dives where you can cruise across vast reef systems, we’ll take you to a range of different sites across all three Gili islands and Lombok.
