Local Excursions

We are on sunny island of Pulau Aur, 2-3 hours boat ride away from Mersing jetty. Since we are a private resort / island boat transport has to be pre-arranged with us.

Things to note

Please note that in order to provide an exclusivity to our guest, we only arrange trips to our island based on 3 days 2 night package with departures. The place is open Friday to Sunday only due to its far proximity from mainland. But if you have a group of ten or more, we can host you during weekdays.

Facilities


A Private Paradise

Forget the crowds and the bustle – Gilligan’s Dive Resort is situated on its own private beach, a long stretch of powder-white sand perfect for sunbathing and lazing in the sun. Take a dip in our house reef, rich with coral life, including resident baby Black Tip Reef Sharks. Schools of bumphead parrotfish often venture close to shore at evening time.
The calm waters and clear visibility make the our House Reef perfect for snorkellers.
