In Gili Air this week … we found a Giant Frogfish at Gili Air again!! Well the last time it was a painted frogfish, and this time the colour was a faded purple/grey. Such a nice find as these odd shaped bottom dwellers tend to camouflage and hide a lot.
It was found on the dive site called Hans Reef where it was found chilling out on an artificial cage at 12 meters. This dive site is in the North Gilis, and this week the waves have frequently been big, limiting us to the North sites of all 3 Gili’s. This is not a bad thing as we have lovely sites up in the north with a variety of sea life, enough to make all divers of all levels happy!!!
Along the north sites this week we have also been seeing our resident Turtles on almost all the sites as well as blue spotted stingrays, moray eels, ribbon eels, garden eels, cuttle fish, peacock mantis shrimps, nudiebranchs, stone fish, blue spotfin lionfish and many more.
We have had mostly beginner courses this week from the majority of Discover scuba divers to a few Openwater divers.
As for the building here at our shop on Gili Air, the restaurant and bar are coming along nicely, it really can’t come along any faster for the divers after the dive.
