Welcome! We are Mike and Kate, the founders of Freedive Gili. Our school (and this site) is devoted to sharing Freediving as a lifestyle, a passion and a sport. Dive in and enjoy!
As passionate Freedivers, Instructors and athletes, we wanted to create a place that offered the best of everything you need to develop as a Freediver and have a lot of fun while doing it. Freedive Gili was born from the heart and built on a foundation of enthusiasm and dedication to this way of life. We are deeply immersed in all aspects of the sport and so our Freediving courses, facilities and training methods are always evolving and improving. Take a look around or come on over. We would love for you to join us in our sanctuary in the sun for some Freediving, Yoga or just to chat over a fresh green juice! We are super excited about the opening of our new healthy high-vibe vegetarian restaurant. Come and nourish yourself in our Freediving paradise.
Freedive Gili is THE place to learn Freediving and Apnea! We are located on the beach front of Gili Trawangan, a tropical paradise nestled between Bali and Lombok, Indonesia. We are blessed with exotic island living, optimal freediving conditions and daily sunsets that will make you melt. The Gili Islands have evolved to become one of Indonesia’s top destinations for their relaxed and rustic charm, beautiful beaches, the fact that there are no motorized vehicles and there are infinite ways to play above and below the surface here!
