Owner description: With the emphasis on small dive groups and long dives Uber Scuba is a welcome change from the ‘factory’ approach to diving so often found in Asia. Our beachfront location is the perfect place to chill out between dives, study for courses and of course… to hold our famous beach BBQ’s! Our custom built dive boat can reach even the furthest dive sites in around 10 minutes and with maximum four people per group and no time limits on dives you can dodge the crowds and have what every diver wants… more time underwater! Whether trying diving for the first time, continuing your diving education or just fun diving, Uber Scuba's international team of Instructors and resident Course Directors allow us to offer training from Open Water to Instructor in a variety of languages. Our Instructors and guides can draw on a wealth of local diving knowledge to show you everything the Gili’s have to offer: from turtles, stingrays and sharks to pygmy seahorses and if you’re lucky…a passing manta ray!

Unbeknownst to our travel crew, we had stumbled upon a home away from home. Supremely accommodating, friendly, helpful, professional (but laid back), informative staff (and owners) with safety and dive experience at the forefront of their mission (in my humble view). Look no further for dive shops in Gili T.

Dive sites have beautiful coral and all other sorts of amazing fauna. Halik was probably my favourite dive site, but all sites have their own unique characteristics that make them interesting. Gili T in general is a must see and must dive, but you must seek out the blue and yellow Uber Scuba sign with the large whale on Beach Road (close to where the boats drop you off) for a trip to remember.

Oh and don’t forget to buy a beer koozie to remember your trip (and hire Justin [@just_in_water] to get amazing photos of you to make your insta-friends marvel at the adventurer that is you).

Great experience and we highly recommend the company. Straight up prices so you know exactly what
you're paying. It was mine and my partners first dive and we absolutely loved it. Professional tuition out the back in the pool before heading off to the sea. Very trusting and we had a great 30 minute dive. It was that good we decided to go back for a second dive and we asked if we could see more turtles so they took us specifically to Turtle Heaven at the north of Gili meno and true to their word we saw many and this one was 38 minutes so definitely got good value for money.

I had a great experience at Uber, I had my personal instructor and as it was more than a year and a half I didn’t dive, we went through everything again, but when I went to the sea I freaked out. Wayan(my instructor) took me back to the pool and in the afternoon we went for a fun dive to make me feel comfortable before starting the course the day after. They didn’t charge me for that and I felt like we were a big family, never like they just cared for money! Also I hung out everyday with the other instructors and trainee and I had the best time of my life!

Hi Rosi,
Thank you for diving with Uber Scuba Gili, we are delighted it was a good choice for you. We are very happy to hear you appreciated that you had a private instructor for your training, as it had been quite some time since you had last dived. We are glad you felt our instructor Wayan went the extra mile by taking you back into the swimming pool to get comfortable again and took the training slowly to suit your needs. It is also nice to know you enjoyed to hang out here at the dive centre and found the team inclusive and friendly. We thank you kindly for the wonderful review Rosi, and wish you all the best in your future travels. Hope that includes a return visit to us here in Gili T!!
Happy bubbles ;-)
