Manta Dive has a beautiful resort beach front near the harbour so our boats are 30m from the shop. With traditional bungalows, modern rooms and luxurious private villas, there is any accommodation you could ask for. The shop has a guest pool (photo right) and a separate diving pool so guests can relax without swimming into students. The cafe serves breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks with daily specials and in the evening you can relax and have a cold Bintang at Chappies bar.
I teach full time out of Manta Dive located on Gili Trawangan in Indonesia. Gili Trawangan is the third island in a small chain of Islands off the North West coast of Lombok, in the Lombok/Bali Straight. The area represents a large portion of the Indonesian Throughflow where a steady ocean current flows from the Pacific Ocean to the Indian Ocean. This brings at times strong currents and a great variety of marine life. There are over 25 dive sites for every level of diver. Specific to Tech we have a Japanese WWII wreck at 45m and several deep walls reaching 300+m. Most sites can be reached with our boats in less than 30 minutes.
We are happy to organize transport from the two closest hubs which are Bali (Denpassar airport( and Lombok (Praya Airport). From Bali there are daily fast boats to Gili Trawangan taking 2 hours to get to the Island and in Lombok its a 1.5 hour car ride and then a swift 10min speed boat ride to get to our beautiful Island. People love the Gili's because of the mix of great diving, accomodation and with no motorized vehicle allowed some well deserved escape from the busy traffic elsewhere.
