What can I see?

Turtles galore! But that’s not everything… There is such a wide range of sea life around the Gili’s, with plenty of fish and critters around the reefs. Our sandy House reef offers a range of nudibranchs, shrimps, crabs, pipe fish and ribbon eels with octopus and cuttlefish also coming for a visit. On our wrecks we often find scorpion fish, lionfish, schools of bat fish, turtles, leaf scorpion fish and file fish.

For those of you who would like to see the bigger fish we have plenty of dive sites to choose from to find these beauties. On dive sites like Shark Point, Manta Point, Deep Turbo and Gili Air wall we often see reef sharks, manta rays (in season January-March), turtles, eagle rays, moray garden and ribbon eels. The schooling fish we see are trevally, barracuda, bat fish and tuna. We also get a drop in from whale sharks on occasions, usually around January to March.

Latest from our Gilis Diving Blog:

WHY GILI AIR FOR YOUR OPEN WATER COURSE?

Gili Air is the ideal place to start your scuba diving adventures. The island is tropical with a relaxed atmosphere where you can find white-sand beaches as well as many topside activities after the diving. The diving around the Gili islands offers reef with hard and soft corals, drop offs, and walls. The blue, warm and clear water and calm surface offer perfect conditions to learn to dive.

Apart from many turtles the reefs are home to a multitude of underwater creatures. You may be lucky and encounter reef sharks, but for sure you will find surgeon fish, bat fish, moray eels, stingrays, trevally, as well as many small Critters such as Ornate Ghost Pipe fish, Nudibranch, Leaf Scorpion fish, Frogfish, Garden eels, a wide range of shrimps. A perfect place to learn to dive!

WHAT WILL MY EXPERIENCE BE LIKE ON GILI AIR?

Popular Dive sites for the Open Water course are Meno Slope, Bounty Wreck, Manta Point and our famous Turtle Heaven where we have the chance to dive with loads of turtles throughout the dive.

We have a well-lit classroom where you will watch the PADI Open Water Videos and go over the theory part of the course with your Instructor. For the confined sessions we use our purpose built 2.5m deep swimming pool to practice your first dive skills. We take as much time as needed to build confidence and good Buoyancy skills, and once ready for action we then have our 4 Open Water dives scattered around the 3 Gili Islands.

E-LEARNING / TOUCH SCHEDULE

With your theory already completed before you get here, the first two days will be spent in the pool and enjoying the first two open water dives, and then two more open water dives on the third and final day.
