Diving around Gili Air; Scallywags to Oceans 5 house reef
After the June 2011 PADI IDC on Gili Air with Oceans 5 was completed, what does a PADI Course Director do on a day off, right, he goes diving!
One of the dives I did was to jump in on the beach, in front of Gili Air‘s best restaurant, Scallywags and drift and dive to the Oceans 5 house reef.
It was a very nice and relaxing dive, it lasted 88 minutes! The scenery was lovely and changed a few times with some outstanding coral patches thrown in!
Once more a first; a Leafy robust pipe fish. it was well hidden between leaves that looked just like it!
A cute, tiny, yellow box fish
It was the last of my dives during this trip, a report of another dive site, Nudibranch City, is still in the pipeline. The diving in general was really good, with excellent visibility, ranging between 20 and 30 meters and during the last three days, on two days Manta Rays were spotted, along with Eagle rays and plenty of sharks!
Come and dive the Gili’s!
