J’ai fait une plongée découverte ou débutant (à 12m) et vraiment pas déçue car les fonds marin sont magnifiques.
J’étais toute seule avec la mono qui était très sympa. Elle m.a expliqué les signes importants en plongée et on a fait des exercices dans la piscine.
J’ai vraiment apprécié car elle m’a laissé autonome et je pouvais aller où je voulais (tout en contrôlant bien sur).
Une monitrice parle un peu français.
Les prix sont très corrects 910kroupies pour 1h d’exercices et d’explications et 1h de plongée (inclus tout le matériel et le bateau)


Alles kwam professioneel over voordat we gingen boeken om te snorkelen, de snorkel benodigdheden zijn van goede kwaliteit en de mensen die er werkten aardig. Het was uiteindelijk toch een teleurstelling omdat het een grote groep was met veelal duikers waardoor er geen ene omkijken was naar degene die gingen snorkelen erg jammer! Erg veel gebeten door kleine kwallen die je niet kon vermijden dus een wetsuit zou erg fijn zijn geweest. Het was mooi maar het is niet mooier dan snorkelen meteen vanaf het strand. Voor degene die gingen duiken zag het er wel goed geregeld uit.


Dive center à recommander !
Nous avons fait 3 plongées avec eux et avons été ravis.Le dive center se trouve sur la plus belle plage de Gili air permettant d’en profiter avant, entre et après les plongées ou alors se détendre sur la belle terrasse en ayant accès au wifi. Autre avantage, vous n’avez qu’à faire quelques pas jusqu’au bateau sans rien porter alors que vous verrez beaucoup d’autres plongeurs porter tout leur équipement d’un dive center excentré jusqu’au bateau. Si vous plongez le matin et l’après-midi, le déjeuner n’est par contre pas inclus.Les coraux ne sont pas en très bon état aux Gilis mais vous verrez un nombre incroyable de tortues. Je vous recommande le sharkpoint où nous n’avons vu aucun requin mais bien d’autres choses (serpent, poisson scorpion, raies, tortues, pieuvre, murènes…).


Erg fijne duikschool. Het is een kleine duikschool tov andere duikscholen. Dat werkt erg fijn. Ik heb een aangepaste training open water diver gekregen, zodat het nog mogelijk was om het binnen mijn tijdsbestek te volgen. Alle instructeuren zijn vakmensen en ze hebben voor ieder type leerling een instructeur.

Het fijne van de duikschool is dat het heel persoonlijk, flexibel en nieuw is. In tegenstelling tot grote duikscholen waarbij je toch sneller een nummertje bent met vaste programma’s. Het valt te adviseren om de training in het Engels te volgen, omdat in andere landen vaak ook geen Nederlands gesproken wordt. Nederlandse training biedt deze school niet.


Friendly & very professional staff. Good communication with native english speaking manager & multilingual instructors staff (english, french, dutch). We felt really at ease. New equipment, nice boat, good, nice & well located infrastructure. We recommend. Florence & Christophe


Did my Open Water there and two Adventure Dives.
Really great Dive School, super friendly and competent staff, great Boat with oxygen, toilette, beverages etc. and funny boat crew.
Scallywags also take care to keep the dive class small. I had always 1-1 dives.
I really enjoyed the days at Scallywags Dive and special thx to Meghan and Alex for the great dives.
Very strong recommended


Scallywags Dive.Ben at Scallywags dive was very accommodating in giving us the type of diving we wanted to do each day. Diving with these guys is perfect as you can snooze on the loungers on the beach until your boat leaves, the school/boat launch is right next to scallywags restaurant making it so easy to just get up and go. The dive shop is a really nice place to be with a balcony looking over the beach and the mountain, its the nicest looking dive shop on the island. Their boat is really nice and they don’t cram too many people onto it which I have found with many other dive schools.They’re a really friendly couple from the moment you enter the shop to enquire, can’t recommend Scallywag dive enough, thanks guys. We’ll be back!xxx


My boyfriend and I did the DSD at scallywags. After a quick explanation of the basics and equipment we went in to the water to get confident with being underwater. Next thing you know we where on the boat heading of to the dive site. I was very nervous, but Rama our dive instructor stayed calm and helped me al the way trough. Thanks to him i had the greatest experience! Beautiful fish and lovely turtles! I would recommend SD to everyone thats looking for a nice dive. Special thanks to Linda and Rama for the wonderful day!


My girlfriend and i had a wondurfull time with scallywag dive(=specialy our instructor Rama was a hell of a guy and a great spotter aswell). The materials were Brand New and they helped where they could.
Wish them all the best!!!


During a quick visit to Gili Air, I decided to try a dive for the first time in many years. I was a bit nervy but once I was paired up with an instructor we talked about diving procedures, hand language, equip[ment etc and he put me through my paces. I felt pretty confident to get in the water.
