This week around the North Gilis, Lombok……. Peacock Mantis Shrimp seem to be the highlight of this week. They are all around the 3 North Gili Islands, we pretty much see at least one on every dive. This week however they seem to have taken over. With their beautiful multi-colours, playful characteristic and fast movements from one hole to another it has been a delight to keep bumping into these crazy shrimps.
We have also been spotting a lot of moray eels still, leaf scorpion fish, shrimps and schools of trevally, not to forget of course our resident Turtles which we see a tremendous amount of.
The visibility has been amazing this past week reaching 30+. What a difference clear blue warm water really makes to a dive, most of the time I am in absolute ore when diving up here in the north of Lombok.
The season is picking up now, still early but we have had the boat going out every day for the past week and a half with students, Discovery dives and fun dives.
We have also had our boat named Zoey move up to the North Gilis from the south. A lovely journey that only took just under 2 hours from Sekotong up to Gili Air.
It is all go go go here in Lombok at the moment with the start of our dive centre on Gili Air, our first guests from Gili Air and Belongas soon to be up and running again.
I’ll keep you posted on when the dive centre is finished and ready for ACTION!!!
