Overview

Offering courses and fun dives in small groups, Big Bubble is proud of having been in Gili Trawangan since July 2001, making us one of the longest running dive centres on the island. We are situated down on the beach near the turtle sanctuary in a hotel called Dejavu. 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 a fun and professional atmosphere.

Have been diving with those guys for weeks and I must say that it is one of the best dive shop I have ever been. Anyone in the shop is valued guest, not just paying customer. The boat, local crew, management, location, equipment is excellent.
