A high quality dive center and school. Great Instructors, Divemasters and boat crew. They really emphasize safety. Great for beginner divers who want to do their OW or AOW as they teach very well. Went to many cool dive sites and saw amazing underwater creatures. Thank you so much guys!

Great experience
Read More
During our stay on Gili Air, we checked out different diving schools and in the end decided to do 3 fun dives with Next Level Scuba, since they were the ones we felt most comfortable with. They sat down with us and explained everything we were to expect in great detail and even had a book with pictures to show us the marine life we were most likely to see on our diving trips. Everything was very well organized. Their equipment is almost brand new and of very high quality. Their staff took care of us while we were on the boat and helped us put on our equipment. Our diving instructor made us feel very safe. He was very calm and thorough during our briefings but also underwater and we had one of our best dives with him. We can only recommend Next Level Scuba and hope to come back soon!

I absolutely recommend!
Read More
We got our Open Water diving license at this dive school, and also a deep dive to 30m. We would absolutely recommend this dive center! The instructors are very experienced, empathetic, teach theoretical and practical content very well and speak perfect English. All dives and courses are conducted in small groups with an experienced divemaster at different and beautiful dive locations.

Open Water AND Advanced
Read More
I originally only planned to do my Open Water but I had so much fun diving with Next Level that I stayed to do my Advanced as well! I had a great instructor., she (along with everyone else I met there) was really knowledgeable and passionate about diving and the ocean and made sure it was fun but also prioritized safety. I felt really confident and secure in the water with her and we saw so many cool fish and corals - including lots of bioluminescence during the night dive! They also have some of the best cats hanging around the dive shop. Thanks so much for everything, I hope I'll be back on Gili Air to dive with you again.

When diving, try Next Level!
Read More
The best diving center on Gili Air, probably beyond! I had an amazing experience doing my open water diver. And my Instructor was amazing! When you arrive here, you will feel โ€œthe vibeโ€œ immediately. You just have to be calm and enjoy your experience. Trust me, you will not regret your decision! Thank you very much Next level Scuba!!

Superb dive with a French instructor
Read More
A very educational and reassuring theoretical part for those who are nervous, a briefing looking at all the fish you can meet. Good equipment and the result was exceptional: a dive to 12m as if it was in an aquarium! Once we got back we went through the book to look at what we saw under the water. A great experience that we will never forget. We would recommend this center without any hesitation. Thank you to the whole team for your superb welcome.

Truly the BEST
Read More
Next Level Scuba was the absolute best experience! It was my first time scuba diving so I was a little nervous/hesitant at first. However, the instructors immediately made me feel safe and comfortable. They were patient, well-trained, and truly made the experience pleasant from start to finish. I can't say enough good things about Next Level Scuba, from their incredible staff to their high-quality equipment and cleanliness... they truly are the BEST!

Next Level!

This is hands down the shop to go with if you plan on diving in the Gili's. The staff is made up of professional, courteous, and passionate people that love what they do and love sharing it with others. We felt at ease throughout our entire experience with them and had a fantastic time discovering the underwater world with NLS. Can't wait to go back!

DONT miss out on this gem!
Read More
I've been to Gili Air twice now, both times with parents tagging along. Our first time to the island, we ended up staying at a guesthouse right next to 'Next Level Scuba', which completely turned out to our luck. I value a lot seeing my folks being taken cared of when I'm traveling with them, from my non-diving dad who was allowed snorkling from the boat, to my diving mom getting so much attention, care and help as not to lift heavy equipment, the gear was always assembled when we arrived for the briefings - to the logbook sessions after the dives, sitting and writing in the data and sights of new marine life. The equipment is spotless, and tanks are always nicely filled - the briefings was always nice, clear and relaxed for the fun dives we did. The diving itself is spectacular, only time it's phased up a bit, is when it's forced by currents. Otherwise they're fun, relaxed and really interesting for all levels in diving. The crew is a blast to hang out with after the dives, chatting and sharing good stories on the couches makes you feel like a small part of the shop-family during your stay on Gili Air - specially their fluffy cats are welcoming you! ๐Ÿ˜€ There's always smiles, waves and hugs here, which is the reason why I'm aiming to be visiting this little gem a 3rd time, 4th time.... 5th time? Can't wait to be back!

Everything you'd want and more

I absolutely love this diving company! Annie is so professional in her teaching, so capable in her estimation of the diving conditions and so friendly and personal with her communication, that I kept booking more dives. Initially intended to do just a few fun dives and ended up doing my advanced course. And I've just had the most amazing time! Would definitely recommend!

Best dive centre on Gili Air
Read More
I can recommend this dive center with no hesitation to anyone out there. I have tried two other centers on the island and these guys were absolutely the best in many respects. Whether you want to do certification or fun dives, you will be looked after. Although myself and my wife have done Advanced Open Water before we went to Gili Air, we were definitely not advanced divers and really just starting on our great diving adventure. We wanted a place where we felt safe, pushed ourselves, skill up and also actually just enjoy the dives and have fun. We achieved all these with the super helpful and so knowledgeable dive instructors. During our time there we dived with 5 different instructors, and each and every one of them was professional, helpful and looked after your experience. Wish every center was like that. The dives were very safe, the professionalism of dive instructors went way above what I expected, each dive place was assessed for current, visibility, safety and overall satisfaction factor and when these were not aligned we simply moved to another dive site. I have improved so much as a diver by just observing, listening and discussing some small aspects of my dives with dive instructors. My skill levels improved immensely overall by just making these small adjustments each time. Very safe, professional and fun. Go for it, you will not regret it.

An experience I will never forget
Read More
I honestly don't know where to start, diving is something I had wanted to do for years and this center made the whole experience incredible. I started with the SSI Open Water course where the instructor was super professional and experienced, by the time the course had finished I felt confident and wanted to do more. After speaking with the center staff I decided to do the SSI Deep Diving course which gives me a lot more options for dive sites. Again the course was expertly run I felt safe and confident and had the most incredible dive seeing sharks as well as lots of other things. After that I did a few fun dives around the various dive sites near the Gili Islands and loved every minute of it. I can't say how amazing the staff are, friendly, knowledgeable and experienced. The center had an amazing atmosphere and the equipment was in good condition and well maintained. Honestly I can not recommend this dive center enough!

2 Perfect fun dives on a wonderful morning with next level scuba
Read More
We just did two wonderful fun dives with Greg, the first one to Turtle Heaven and the second one to Han's Reef. He explained everything very good and made us feel very comfortable all the time so we could enjoy our time under water perfectly. We really enjoyed every second of the dive and would love to come back again to next level scuba dive school in the future. Also the way Annie and Greg build up their dive center is really nice, everything looks clean and cozy ๐Ÿ™‚ We can only recommend you to come here and make the best out of your time on the gilis ๐Ÿ™‚ Happily Elisa and Zeno

Genuine 5 star experience. Perfect ๐Ÿ‘Œ

I done 5 dives over 3 days with these guys and also a refresher as I hadnโ€™t dived in over 4 years. My instructor inspired me with confidence and done everything she could to help which included helping find my GoPro which I lost on the first dive. Everything went faultlessly and was made to feel like one of the dive family. Couldnโ€™t recommend enough. Thanks guys for everything and all the best. Regards Nick. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

The right choice
Read More
Had heard about other dive shops in the island before as well, but was just about passing by and the connection was instant. The clear explanation and the organization was giving me the feeling that my steps were bringing me to the right place. The staff was really easy going and all as far as safety is concerned was simply perfect. Really important matter when we are talking about an activity as scuba diving is. All along my trip I've been diving with different shops of all kinds and I can tell that these guys know perfectly what they are doing! So I can just highly recommend it to anyone that consider safety, organization and good vibes as the best things to find in this kind of activities!

Amazing diving school! Great attention to safety, respects marine life and works in small groups!
Read More
Greg made us feel safe and we fully enjoyed our open water course during 3 days. Weโ€™ve learned a lot of his experience. Also, this diving school really cares and respects marine life. Greg is very passionate and serious about his job and made sure we had the best and safest experience we could have. Groups were always small, there was always room for questions and he helped us become confident divers. We would highly recommend diving here if you value these same things.

A must when visiting the island!

Next Level Scuba was exactly what I was looking for! Their instructors were professional and fun making learning to scuba dive the best part of my trip. Now diving with them is a must whenever I am visiting Gili Air! Also a great place to get a paddle board for a nice little ocean paddle.

Awesome open water dive course

Friendly and easy booking with Annie via email. The instructor was fantastic, enthusiast, and had lots of patience. She made us feel calm and safe when diving. Staying at Tipsea Turtle behind the dive shop made the experience even easier.
