    Super crystal clear water with good snorkeling and 70 percent chance of seeing turtles. Amazing views to Lombok and mount rinjani Lots of eateries and the locals are so friendly.

    Snorkeled from the beach got there just after 630am and the first boat was arriving at the same time. Didn't spoil the experience. My 5yo (good swimmer) snorkeled out with hubby (it's not too far out) and took a float. Loved it and swam around further till saw a turtle.

    Wouldn't bother coming here unless you fancy a walk somewhere different and have time to spare. It was neither impressive or attractive.

    No complaints. My first dive and it was very good instruction on the intro course. I dived 3 times because it was so good. The equipment was great, and the water(plus animals and corals) were super cool.

    I took the 6-hour introductory course for apnea/free diving course with Micka. The experience exceeded expectations. Micka was a skilled and experienced teacher who communicated clearly and was very encouraging and supportive. The first two hours of the course were spent in a classroom learning the theory of free diving; the next hour in the pool practicing; and then 2+ hours out on the water diving down to 10m along a rope and then down to 9m at another spot with turtles. The experience was so positive that I was high from it for days (maybe it was the lack of oxygen---haha). In seriousness, I was really impressed with how well the course was run and how professional Micka was. He also took pictures of our dives and emailed them to us. If I had had more time on Gili Air, I would have continued with the certification course.

    Such a friendly and supportive team. I lucked out and got private lessons to get my PADI open water qualification. Great knowledge of the surrounding areas and the flora and fauna. Felt safe and up to standard! Thanks again!

    When we arrived in Gili Meno we walked the island and spoke to several of the dive shops to get a feel for each — I can save you that time, while many are likely great, I highly recommend Blue Marlin.

    We had never dived before and got paired with Tamar our guide, who was excellent. She was great at explaining the fundamentals in BM’s training pool before taking us out into the ocean. The dives were beautiful and we saw so many types of fish.

    We loved the experience so much, when we got back to land we asked her if we could dive again the next day!

    The operation is very smooth and professional and we felt safe and comfortable the entire time. Truly a memorable experience. (In case it matters our trip was July 2019… though we are hoping to go back soon!)

    We met Tina on Gili Meno and she told us about the day trips to Lombok. Since we wanted to go to Lombok anyways we met her at her office the next morning to look at what she could offer.

    We ended up booking a 4days/3nighs trip, including a speedboat back to Bali.
    Tina was super nice and helped with any questions we had. Everything she promised us, worked out perfectly. She also gave us her WhatsApp so that we could reach her in case we had questions, and she always responded very quickly. And as two girls traveling on our own, we felt very save on this tour!

    We were 100% satisfied with the trip and would definitely recommend booking this trip with her. Our driver on Lombok was amazing and told us so much about nature, people and culture. If we would have done the trip on our own, we wouldn't have seen so many amazing places and definitely not learn so much about the background etc.. We especially liked that we didn't just go to tourist spots but were also shown local spots. The accomodations that Tina booked for us on the trip were amazing.

    We loved it, thank you Tina and Nono (our driver) for this experience.

    We went on two snorkeling trips with blue ocean. We stopped at four different places to snorkel and they were all great. The first stop we saw and swam with quite a few turtles. The guides were great at pointing them out to us. The coral at the wall and also near the shipwreck was so beautiful with lots of amazing colour. We were pleasantly surprised. Also had a decent size reef shark swim by us..great to watch. The guides were really helpful at pointing us towards certain corals, fish etc. The currents are fairly strong on Gili Meno but with the boat dropping you off and just drifting back towards them you felt comfortable and safe the whole time.

    My boyfriend and I did a lovely sunrise tour. The horses were well taken care of and kind. The owner and tour guide was extremely passionate about his horses and shared information about them and the stable, which was fun.

    The tour is suitable for beginners and advanced people with the focus to see the island. I highly recommend it!

    Even though we were on Gili Meno - walking distance to many of the dive and snorkelling sights, we did pay locals on the spot to take us out. (It was $15 each! IDR 150,000) It is slightly different going in from the boat and I think better as the walk around Gili Meno to all the different spots in not possible in a day for us.... As it is a long walk, in sand around the island and was bloody hot!

    I would do again. Please note though, it is very difficult to get into the boats - very small and short, lose wooden ladder to get up. Just ask to see the ladder and the boat first to see if you have enough upper body strength and those with dodgy knees - think of other ways you can haul your butt out of the water! My armpits are still bruised!

    Well worth it and I feel more critical about myself then of the boat and ladder!

    We went on a sunset tour and we were all not very experienced. The horses are not too big, very well kept and have interesting personalities. The staff took very nice photos and videos of us and contributed to our experience in a very positive way with their fun chat. Just make sure you mention to them if you want to ride on the beach because otherwise you might end up only on the path.

    I had a scrub and massage. It was really great! The girls are very friendly, the massage was just perfect and the beachside setting is beautiful. Really recommend it!.
