bali diving academy logoOur PADI professional management and full service facilities are located in five premier’s diving locations: Sanur (main office), Tulamben, Pemuteran, Lembongan, and Gili Islands (Lombok), providing an unmatched range of diving experiences.

Importantly, knowledgeable international diving organisations also acknowledge our commitment to safety combined with enjoyment. 

Some examples are our “Outstanding Commitment to the PADI System of Education” award received in 2002, and the PADI “Outstanding Contribution to the Diving Industry,” for the whole Asia Pacific Region, in 2010.

Vila Ombak Diving Academy offers a relaxed diving environment that enables us to provide a flexible and personalised level of service, aimed at surpassing your highest expectations.

Our team of multilingual Instructors and Divemasters includes some of the most highly trained and experienced dive professionals from Indonesia and overseas.

Vila OmbakRenowned for almost guaranteed turtle interactions and reef sharks, Gili Trawangan ranks among Indonesia’s most popular dive locations. Easy boat access to at least 16 beautiful dive sites teeming with marine life ensures excitement for divers of all levels. Diving cannot get much easier than this!

Enjoy daily dive trips around the 3 Gili Islands. All descents are made in small groups (Divemaster/Diver ratio 1:4), carefully guided by full time, fully insured, certified Divemasters, who are in tune with Trawangan reefs and rhythms.
Well maintained “State of the Art” equipment, including computers for each diver, further ensures your safety and enjoyment. 


Bali Diving Academy Trawangan recognises its responsibility to protect the unique marine environment of the three Gili Islands.  Our team was integral in the facilitation of the 2006 Biorock® Workshop that resulted in reef regeneration structures or “Coral Arks” creating habitat in which coral thrives and juvenile fishes can survive to breeding age.

We also play an active role in vocational training programs, scientific studies, and environmental audits and maintain ongoing liaison to ensure protection and management of the region. Invest in the future by choosing to dive with a company committed to both community and environment.


Our partnership with Gili Trawangan’s first international and premier property, Hotel Vila Ombak as well as the “newborn” Ombak Sunset, allows us to offer excellent Dive and Stay packages.

Contact us for the latest offers and special tailor-made packages on these two properties where and accommodation to suit all budgets is available.


Snorkeling at Gili Trawangan can be a magical experience for young and old.

The most effective way to enjoy most of the snorkelling sites is to follow our dive boats which depart several times a day just from the beach, and reach the best spots in maximum 20 minutes.

Once on site, our snorkelling guides will brief you first about safety procedures and the marine life that you are going to encounter, and after a fascinating snorkelling experience, they will be happy to sit with you at the dive centre to answer any questions you may have about your underwater encounters.

Turtles are without doubt the highlight!
