Had a lovely dive this morning with my dive master Laura. It was just the 2 of us, so I was pretty lucky to have a one-on-one. Saw my first ever shark, 5 gorgeous langurous turtles and a couple of cool but timid octypus along with a zillion beautiful fish. Thanks so much Laura, lovely to have met you. Alison

We did the Discover Scuba Dive Course and had the best diving instructors, Laura and Angus (hope we spelled your name right!). After a short idiot-proof theory session, the both of us and our two private teachers went practicing our new skills in the pool. We had the most amazing time when we finally did the open ocean dive! We... More

My best friend Stacy and I traveled to Gili T end of February/beginning of March as our first stop in Indonesia to get our open water dive certification through Lutwala, which we selected after researching several dive shops beforehand. The shop itself is on the northern tip of the island, which is great because it's away from the craziness of... More

I had a excellent time diving with Lutwala Divers in late September/early October 2016. My lasting impressions are of a dive outfit that differs from others in the fact that they weren't churning out dive course candidates on packed out boats.....Diving with Lutwala provided un-crowded boats as well as a very friendly, attentive and professional service throughout the 10+ dives...

We recently had a family holiday on the island. There are a lot of dive centres but we were recommended to Lutwala and have to now pass this recommendation on. My 3 sons and 1 daughter all did their Open Water dive course with Lutwala Dive, my husband and I did our refresher, 2 dives and started our advanced. The... More

Located on the north west side of the island, perfect for any hotels that aren't on the main strip. They provided professional, knowledgable and engagingly fun instructors for all levels. Did my AOWC with them and although more expensive than the other schools, I had one on one lessons and was able to select which dives I joined. Fantastic experience... More

Lutwala Dive is on the opposite side of the island to the main strip. It is quiet and peaceful. The food was good, however service was a bit slow.

We saw few sharks and turtles. Luckily we encountered a whale shark and a manta on the surface getting to the boat!! Second time for a night dive with... More

Me and my boyfriend went to Gili T to take our PADI open water certificates and we're so glad we did! Laura was an amazing instructor and made us feel secure and calm even if we were nervous before. It felt very personal and it was only me and my boyfriend in a group. We've had some amazing and everyone... More

Lutwala is located at the end of the Island away from the main tourist strip where the other dive schools and bars are. Which gives it such a nice vibe especially as its situated right on the beach! Everyone that works there is lovely, fun and experienced in the area which means you have awesome dives! I wouldn't dive with... More
