Owner description: Geko Dive first opened in June 1997. It is the longest operating dive centre in Padang Bai. Geko Dive has been a PADI Resort since 1998, and is now a PADI 5 Star Resort and TecRec facility. We are fortunate to have one of Bali's best dive staff. Together, the Geko Dive Team can guide and teach in Balinese, English, French, German, Spanish, Indonesian and Japanese. All of our dive guides are excellent divers, with years of working experience on Bali's dive sites. At the same time, SCUBA remains a passion first and foremost. Diving with Geko Dive has always been fun and serene. To make sure that it stays this way, we are not planning to get any bigger than we already are. Dive factories and diving in large herds are not things that the Geko Dive Team enjoys. Diving should be a personal experience! We therefore keep dive groups small (4 max and often less), with similarly experienced divers together. We believe all our guests deserve the ultimate diving adventure with utmost enjoyment and safety.

I spent seven days with Geko in Bali at Padang Bai and did 15 dives. On the dives due to the help of their local guides I saw a very large range of underwater life including manta rays, sharks, turtles and sea snakes - plus they provided a nice lunch and drink after the diving. The coral looks fantastic at the sites I visited and I was comparing it to Bonaire where I dived last year. This location has so much to offer, nice food, two beaches and a view of Mount Agung from Hotel Bloo's restaurant which is not to be missed. Geko were very focused on safe diving and the team there were fantastic. No more Bonaire I'm coming back to Indonesia!

We went diving with a group of friends all at different experience levels. The guys at geko dive took excellent care of us and made sure everyone enjoyed it to the max. One of our friends only snorkels, one did his advanced course + nitrox certification and one is quite an advanced underwater photographer, but they still managed to combine everything in a great fashion. The instructors and dive masters were supercool and chill, though well experienced. It always felt more than safe and comfortable around them and especially Made is a genious. He finds everything! The wreck dive in Tulamben and the mantas were definitely among the highlights. I will always come back to geko divers when on Bali!
