Lombok Dive Safari Itinerary
1st Day: 2 dives diving Gili Islands, relaxed cruise to South Lombok, late afternoon BBQ
2nd Day: 3 dives diving South Gilis
3rd Day: 2 dives diving South Gilis, relaxed cruise to Gili Islands
The itinerary on our Lombok dive safari aims to get you in the clear waters right away. Shortly after departure on our 3 day Lombok dive safari from Gili Air you’ll be diving Gili Islands for 2 dives. Then, heading 24Nm south you can chill on the upper deck. While we sail the lee shore of Lombok’s scenic west coast. Once arrived we will weigh anchor in the beautiful white sand wonderland. The “Secret Gilis” of Lombok. Located just inside the hook of Lombok’s southern west tip. Now you can dive South Lombok!
You’ll see, you might as well have left Bali 1000 mile behind. Now step back into the slow lane of Sasak fishing village life. We dive South Lombok for 3 dives on our second day. Then we lay a rope ashore to our beautiful home base island of Asahan. You will be overwhelmed by the cool chill of Asahan’s Eco Lodge lounges. Maybe you may want to squeeze in a sunset or sunrise hilltop climb while we’re here. Day 3 we dive Gili Islands in South Lombok for another 2 wonderful watery excursions. Then we set sail for the later afternoon run back to Gili Air. However, we want to warn you, that leaving the southern Gilis is no fun. No one wants to leave.
Diving Gili Islands and dive South Lombok with BIGKANU…
Diving Gili Islands and to dive South Lombok from BIGKANU. Our Lombok dive safari is in sharp contrast to the mass tourism of Bali. A setting where serenity sets in like a gentle wind chime. During our Lombok dive safari we are not running gensets, we are not compressing air on board. We go diving Gili Islands and we soak up the silence with some gentle chill-out sound. Our dive bottles are delivered fresh daily, and our electric power comes from the sun.
BIGKANU, a sailing boat with a traditional lateen rig. Juxtaposed against the greenest of solar tec. Leaving a tiny fossil foot print, and a water spider’s 12m wide grip on the ocean. This boat is seasickness’s nemesis! On our Lombok dive safari we carry 11 guests. But usually run with 5 to 8 guests. Each guest gets a choice of single or double curtain cabin. Which by day, opens to a big breezy clubhouse of food and music.
We can go diving Gili Islands clean off the stepped after deck of the BIGKANU. But more often than not, we will be diving Gili Islands with our fleet of DiveZone boats. Apart from this we can also dive Gilis and South Gilis with twin 6m trimaran tenders. Also available for our Lombok dive safari are 4 big SUP boards. So we are, in effect, a floating toy-craft carrier. We are unique, join our Lombok Dive Safari!
After diving Gilis Islands in South Lombok we urge you to just wade ashore. During our Lombok dive safari take in the lovely feel of traditional island life. Diving Southern Gilis you’ll have better corals, slightly less viz, and more critter action than diving Gili Islands up north. BIGKANU is a floating foodie haven. Big generous western breakfasts, and healthy, hearty, multi dish meals for lunch and dinner, all included. Why pay to sit in taxis, speedboats? Why pay for 3 meals and accommodation? When for slightly more than a 2 dives Bali, you get accommodation, meals and an amazing marine experience? …itinerary and prices you can find here
