The Center is one of the largest dive centers in the Gili Islands and offers world class facilities including a purpose built Instructor Development classroom, two training pools and a dedicated Instructor training boat. Trawangan Dive is situated directly next to the beach and the Instructor training sites are only a stone’s throw away allowing minimal time to reach the dive sites, thus maximizing time spent on training whether in the classroom, the swimming pool or in Open Water. Other facilities at the dive center include a beachside restaurant, poolside bar & chill out area, changing facilities and direct swimming access to the beach.
