This week in the North Gilis, Lombok the wind and waves have picked up over the last two days but the diving has continued. The visibility is ranging from 8-15 meters.
The north gilis are known for their island life from a nice relaxed holiday to a party time on gili Trawangan, but the diversity of sea life is also something to be famous for. We have been bumping into a lot of moray eels this week, especially the giant morays. We often find them peaking out of rocks and corals and when we are truly lucky we can find them in action on their hunt for food. The Giant morays here come in all shapes and sizes partnered with relatives from the snowflake morays, white eyed morays, garden and ribbon eels, and the fibrillated morays.
Other life we meet underwater ranges from our schools of trevallys, tuna, barracuda, bat fish and humpheads rainbow runners to the macro of shrimps, crabs, nudibranchs, lobsters, flounders, scorpion fish and flatworms. Our tropical reef fish up here are morish idols, parrot fish, damsel fishes, rabbit fish, sweetlips, groupers and so much more. Turtles are 95% guaranteed on every dive and our white tip reef sharks at shark point. So the north gilis should be famous for not just the life on the islands but the jewels that live beneath the surface.
Our dive center is still progressing very fast and the exciting time for opening is creeping up ever so fast. We can’t wait for the end result!!
