Diving with 3WDIVE – Gili Air
Scuba diving with 3WDIVE
3W Dive is a small, friendly dive shop run by a management with years of diving experience and a deep understanding of all dive safety and regulatory procedures. Being an SSI school, we offer a unique dive experience tailored to your particular needs with a more personalised approach to courses and guided dives. Whether you’re an advanced diver interested in macro photography, a complete beginner dreaming of diving with turtles or a freediver looking for something different, you’ll get the exact kind of dive you want.
As sites are so close by with short turn around times, they’re able to offer three dives a day; 8.30am, 11.30am and 2.30pm.
And with limited group bookings – no more than four divers per group – as well as a comfortable, spacious boat, we put pleasure first offering a first-class dive experience both above and below the surface.
Many guests come for a single dive and end up diving for their entire stay. The friendly staff and crew as well as the easy, relaxed pace of the shop becoming the most memorable part of their holiday.
From muck dives in Lombok’s black volcanic sands, wrecks guarded by reef sharks, giant pinnacles 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 differ- ent sites across all three Gili islands and Lombok.
Diving on the Gili Islands is all about comfort. The water is warm; from 28 – 30 degrees, clear; 15-40 meter visibility and just a short boat ride away; 5-20minutes so you can plan your diving around your holiday with plenty of stops in between for a smoothie, luxurious lunch or restorative massage.
The Gili’s / Our base Gili Air
The Gili Islands
Incredible peace and quiet, turquoise water, sea turtles and nemos at your fingertips, chilled beach bars and breathtaking sunsets. Welcome to the paradise of the Gili islands! This archipelago in the Indian Ocean consists of three islands: Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air, each one attracting different kinds of people. The islands have a deep sense of calm as there are no motor vehicles. You can only move on foot, with a bike or horse- drawn carriage called a Cidomo.
Gili Air a piece of tropical heaven
Imagine an island where time stands still. Where Mondays are a distant memory, every day spent soaked in sunlight, surrounded by crystal clear water, sitting on sand that sparkles like diamonds – a place where kids can roam free and play – far from iPads or computer screens.
A place where days aren’t planned around deadlines or meetings, but sunsets. So come together – cocktail in hand, and watch as the world around you melts away into a pink and purple dreamlike haze.
This is a place where a daily massage is as common as a morning illy espresso – both enjoyed over ocean views. Where waiters with infectious smiles serve you under soft candlelight – all to the amazement of your other half. Enjoy decadent delicacies from fresh local seafood, vegan-friendly curries to rich French cuisine, this island providing for every kind of traveller.
Beneath the surface, a similar magic can be found. The island’s calm, clear waters can be likened to a giant, turquoise aquarium. Swim past sleeping green turtles, around schools of devil rays and through every kind of tropical fish you can imagine – all this wonder just a short boat ride away so you’ll be home in time for a long lunch with the family or an afternoon yoga class with your partner.
