Overall, guests appreciate the relaxed and flexible, yet professional ambience at Divine Divers Gili Meno - their personal approach means you come as a guest but leave as part of the Divine Divers family.
Due to their central location Divine Divers have easy access to all of the Gili dive sites within a 10 minute boat ride, with many of the most famous sites right in front of their doorstep. Their daily fun dive trips are open for all levels of certified divers. They are guided underwater exploration tours and you will get to see the best of the dive sites with an experienced divemaster. Due to prevailing currents, most Gili dive sites are best seen on a drift dive from a boat.
The dive sites of the Gili Islands have a great marine diversity with sought after critters like ornate ghost pipe fish, frogfish and nudibranchs. But also reef sharks are frequently spotted as well as octopus along with tuna, barracuda, trevally and occasional passing eagle rays. Among the hunters you will find colourful tropical reef dwellers such as sweetlips, pufferfish, angelfish, batfish, butterflyfish, lionfish, scorpionfish and schooling snappers, fusiliers and damsels. Oh and did we mention the turtles?
Dive sites are chosen daily for the next day. The boat leaves three times a day at 08:30, 11:00 and 14:00. Throughout the week, they also schedule night dives. By leaving half an hour earlier than everybody else on the Gilis, Divine Divers ensure that they have the beautiful dive sites to themselves. The boats are traditional Indonesian dive boats with a spacious sundeck. After your dive, you can dry off, sunbathe and enjoy the spectacular view.

Gili Dive Sites
The dive sites of the Gili Islands offer something for everyone. You can experience gentle to strong drift dives, walls, wrecks, and pinnacles. Moreover, there are also some beautiful muck dive sites where you can expect to have your nose in the sand looking for tiny and extraordinary creatures. The Gilis Islands also feature the largest biorock program (artificial reefs) in the world. Hard and soft corals can be found at different depths. Popular dive sites include Shark Point, Sunset Reef (also known as Manta Point), Deep Turbo and Meno Wall. In addition, Lombok, which offers world-class muck-diving is only 15 to 20 minutes away.
The water is crystal clear, warm and the conditions are perfect for beginners and experts alike. Conditions vary depending on the season but in general you can expect 20 meters visibility and 28 to 29 degrees water temperature. It is safe to say that the Gilis offer great diving all year round with the dry season running from May to October and the rainy season from November to April. Rainy season sounds scarier than it is because it doesn't really rain that much and the diving isn't affected by the rain.
