I took the Advanced Padi Course in this Dive Center and also the Nitrox course. The people there were really nice and professional. They made you feel very confortable and at home. It was a really good choice. In the end you just lnow everyone and talk to everyone, so eventhough i was traveling alone i didi not feel alone.

Completed our advanced water course and no regrets ! Laura was an amazing instructor, and the company were filled with enthusiastic and supportive people. Highly recommend to anyone! Also didn't think I was interested in night diving - too scared at the idea of it ! But went for it, and it was amazing! cured my fear of night water!

I've been diving with Blue Marlin in Gili T for two weeks and having an absolutely awesome time. I have to attribute my enjoyment of the island on this trip almost entirely to the dive centre. There are so many dive centres on the island but a recommendation brought me to Blue Marlin and I can see why. I have... More

For my very first diving adventure I did the open water and my Advanced-OW with Blue Marlin Dive. Right when you get there you sense the fun & warm atmosphere of the place created by dive experts from all over the globe. You'll find super cozy places to study for your course directly at the beach. Videos, Books and papers... More

I hadn't been diving for a few years so I contacted Blue Marlin before arriving at Gili T, where they advised me to complete a PADI refresher. When I arrived I met Mike who took me through the half-day refresher, which reintroduced me to diving and made me completely at ease. I even went on to do another dive the... More

At the end of October we did two dives at Blue Marlin with instructor Bruno. He showed us everything we wanted and helped us through our deep dive 👍. Saw turtles, sharks and rays. Recommandable place!

Me and my other half are both novice divers with only one previous dive experience. We went for the DSD (a dive that does not require any certification) and we felt really comfortable with the instructor and the level of professionalism throughout. We where taken in the pool to refresh us of our basic skills then taken out to dive.... More
