About Dive Central Gili
DCG is a modern, English owned, PADI 5 Star Dive Resort located directly on the beach in the central area of Gili Trawangan, only a short 7 minute walk from where the Fast Boats from Bali will drop you off. With stunning turquoise waters and awe-inspiring views to Lombok and Mt Rinjani, the Gili islands are one of the easiest places to take a PADI dive course of any level, up to the professional ranks, or do a fun dive. Dive Central Gili adheres to high safety standards and offers a very high standard of customer service. Gili Trawangan offers warm tropical water diving with lots of turtles and colourful reef fish and corals. You may also see sharks, Cuttlefish and Octopus. Our instructors and dive guides have dived in multiple places throughout Indonesia and the world. To ensure your safety we dive in small groups of no more than 5 people when fun diving. Our equipment is new, and our in-house service technician takes care of any problems straight away - we use Aqualung and Apeks equipment and we are an Aqua-Lung Partner Centre.

Arrived in Gili with no plans and before I knew it I was sitting at the bar at Pesona signing up for my scuba course. I had Pipp as my instructor and she is fantastic. Due to covid, I was the last student so I got a lot of one on one attention which made everything so easy. I can wait to go back and do some advanced courses. Dive Central Gili provided me with an experience I will never forget!

After doing my PADI rescue course with Dive Central I couldn't resist to come back and do my Divemaster with them. The DCG Team is super competent, funny, professional and just everything you wish from a Dive Center. The Divemaster course was so good that it was bitter sweet to end it. I learned more than I could've ever imagined and they brought me to the next level. Pip was my mentor and she's an absolute lovely instructor that is always there for you when you need her. We spent many hours debriefing the days, talking about things to improve, going for some of my favourite fun dives together and just having a good time. I can recommend Dive Central for anyone who considers doing their Divemaster or literary any course in particular. The other instructors Roos and Julian and the managers Steve and Deris are all amazing people and will answer your questions and take away all of your concerns about diving. Dive Central is the place to go when you're on Gili T

Highly recommended! Incredible diving course with the best diving teacher ever. Thank you Pip (and Michaela)! I had never dived before and I was really excited. Pip was calm, patient and hilarious! We had so much fun! Everything worked very well. The diving equipments was in good condition and clean. People were truly encouraging and I felt I was taken good care of all the time. This course was indeed worth for the money and I would recommend it to everyone!

I attended the Advanced Open Water course in mid February, and it was a great experience! Very professional and helpful staff – especially my instructor Roos. Would absolutely recommend either trying scuba diving for the first time or doing courses here, you will not regret it for a second.
