Ocean Quest

Ocean Quest was founded by Anuar Abdullah in 2010. It is a Malaysian-based conservation organisation, but is rapidly expanding globally and partnered with Sea Shepherd.  Ocean Quest has created its own techniques for coral reef rehabilitation which have been broken down into a series of courses which are now available at Trawangan Dive!

PADI Green Star Award

The PADI Green Star Award ™ is about rewarding vision, excellence and the pursuit of conservation.  Trawangan Dive is very proud to be the first dive centre in the Lombok region to receive the PADI Green Star Award™.
For those of us who love diving, we know that the protection of the underwater world is paramount to the future of the sport and for the enjoyment of generations to come.  As scuba divers we should make a conscious choice to choose dive centres that demonstrate a commitment to environmental awareness.
PADI recently introduced the Green Star Award™ rewarding vision, excellence and the pursuit of conservation.  It is also an easy way to identify dive centres that are actively working towards the preservation of the environment both above and below the water.

Friday Beach Cleans

Every Friday, Trawangan Dive joins the Gili Eco Trust and other like-minded Dive Shops to jointly clean our the beautiful beach of our island. If you're here on a Friday, please come, join us, and help us preserve this magical place. 

 

Horse Clinics

Gili Trawangan is famous for having no cars or motorised vehicles.  The main modes of transport on the island are bicycle and horse cart (cidomo).  

For the last 8 years, Trawangan Dive has been actively involved in improving the welfare of the horses.  Clinics are hosted twice a year with volunteer vets coming to help with basic treatment and care. More recently, Trawangan Dive has helped to set up a farrier program to produce good quality horse shoes locally.

We have seen great improvements in the health and welfare of the horses in this time.
