Frequently Asked Questions...

 

How can I book?

 

It’s fairly easy to book a dive course, fundives a room or bungalow with Oceans 5 on Gili Air, Lombok, Indonesia. Email us directly on info@oceans5dive.com and we will get back to you with the required information and/or booking details that include the payment options.

To make a booking definite, a 50% deposit is required on accommodation and on dive courses.

The deposit can be transferred to our bank account or can be paid by paypal.

 

Is the deposit refundable?

 

No, deposits are not refundable unless the booking is cancelled at least 2 weeks before arrival. In that case we refund 80% of your deposit.

 

How is the weather like on the Gili islands, Lombok, Indonesia?

 

The temperature on the Gilis ranges between 26 and 34 degrees year round. The water temperature is around 28-30 degrees.

The rain season starts around December and ends around February. It can rain during the day but most of the time during the nights. Because of the rain, the visibility underwater can drop. Sometimes the wind keeps us from diving some of the dive sites but we rarely need to cancel dives.

 

When do the PADI diving courses start?

 

You can start all courses at Oceans 5 Resort starting from PADI Open Water diver level up to Divemaster level any day, at your own convenience. It's just the IDC's (Instructor Development Courses) that have set dates, which are listed in our schedule on our pro website: www.indonesia-idc.com .

 

What kind of accommodation and restaurants can I find on Gili Air?

 

The Gilis have accommodation ranging from cheap backpacker rooms (8€ per night)  up to luxury villas (250€ per night). Oceans 5 has low budget standard rooms and mid-class pool bungalows: www.gili-indonesia.com. There is a great variety of restaurants ranging from local warungs (1€ per meal) in the village up to international standard (12€ per meal) on the beach. The local restaurants serve beautiful fish and kebabs from the BBQ.

 

Do I need to book accommodation?

 

Yes! The Gilis have become a very popular holiday destination and although many new resorts have been build, still it is sometimes very difficult to find any available rooms.

Especially in July, August, September, December and January the island gets busy. Our own bungalows at Oceans 5 Dive resort are limited and a popular choice.

 

Do I need to book my dives?

 

We start diving courses every day so you can always walk in at Oceans 5 Dive resort. Only in the high season we advise to book your course upfront to guarantee that we have an instructor available. And of course if you prefer to have an instructor that speaks your own language, it is best to book your course before you arrive.

There is also a 10% discount on your diving with Oceans 5 dive resort if you book online, by email and make a deposit.

 

How long do the courses last?

 

Here's a time schedule for the various courses at Oceans 5 Resort on the Gili islands:

 

The PADI Discover Scuba Dive (Introduction) takes half a day.

The Open Water diver course is 3 to 4 days.

The Advanced Open Water diver course is 2 to 3 days.

The Rescue Diver and EFR course are 4-5 days.

The Divemaster course internship with Oceans 5 Dive resort is scheduled to last approximately 6 weeks to 2 months.

The IDC and PADI IE are exactly 15 days.

 

We are very flexible and length of your course can always be extended if you want to take it a bit slower.

  

Do I need to be healthy to dive?

 

If you have a general good health and you're reasonably fit, there should be no problem for you to take up diving. PADI has a general rule that you need a completely filled out Medical Statement before you begin a course (which is a really good policy!). In Indonesia this statement doesn't need to be verified by a physician, unless you answer one of these questions with a 'Yes" answer or in order to participate in a Divemaster and/or Instructor course (IDC).

In case you are not 100% sure if you are fit to dive, ask your physician for a Medical form that declares that you are fit to dive.

 

Do I need to bring my own equipment?

 

No, only if you want to. We have full sets of equipment in all sizes, even for children.

 

Do your tanks have INT or DIN valves?

 

All our scuba tanks have both INT valves and DIN inserts. You don’t need to bring an adapter.

 

What else can we do on the Gilis?

 

The Gili Islands are the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. The main tourist activities here are walking around the island, relaxing in traditional Berugaks or beds on the beach, reading a book and enjoy the fruit shakes and cocktails.

There is a yoga centre on the island that gives daily sessions in yoga and meditation; you can rent a bike to go around the island; there are snorkelling tours and glass bottom boats that visit nice shallow reefs and the island hopper brings you for daytrips to Gili Meno and Gili Trawangan.

It is also very easy to make a trip to Lombok to see the hot springs, visit a waterfall or even climb the Rinjani Volcano.

 

Is there malaria or Dengue on the island?

 

Yes, during the rain season there is a very small risk on Malaria and Dengue. We get many questions about taking anti-malaria medicine, but all we can answer is that we personally don’t use it and never had malaria here. The risk of getting Dengue is a little bit bigger.

Please make sure that when you come in the rain season that you protect yourself with mosquito repellent and make sure your hotel keeps your room mosquito free.

 

Is there a good hospital?

 

There is a small clinic on Gili Air with basic medicines.

There are some good hospitals in Lombok for more serious injuries.

The nearest hyperbaric chamber is in Bali.

 

 

Are there fastboats going to Gili Air?

 

Yes, there are several fastboat companies that take you from Padangbai harbour in Bali straight to Oceans 5 beach on Gili Air.
