Divesites and Pictures
At the moment we are diving on 23 dive-sites around the Gili Islands, all in distance of a 10-25 minutes boat-trip.
Some of our dive sites are convenient for more experienced divers (currents), but most of them are eminently suitable for all levels. Our experienced local Instructors and Guides do know the dive sites at highest level.

Find below some of our most popular dive-sites
Diving east of Gili Trawangan is a popular spot for a morning-dive. This dive site consists of different levels (24m, 20m, 18m). It starts with a slope out of hard and soft corals, the "native country" of green and hawksbill turtles. The different levels are sandy areas with small coral blocks - the variety is very big starting with schools of trevally, napoleon fish to white tip reef sharks and rays in the sandy areas ending up with ribbon eels, leaf fishes and even mantas.
in the West of Gili Meno goes down to 18m. It offers a lot of small coral fish like lionfish, soldier fish, gobies, crabs and a lot of wart slugs and nudibranches coming out of hiding. It is also called Turtle Heaven because of the many resident hawksbill and green turtles.
in the West of Gili Air is a very beautiful wall that, due to the soft coral cover, shines yellow-orange depending on the position of the sun. The highlight of this wall is a coral block at 22m in which leaf fishes (scorpion fish) found their "home", surrounded by shrimps, pipefish, white-banded cleaner shrimps and thousands of glass fishes... Look out into the deeper parts for white tip reef sharks.
Coral Fan Garden & Basket Coral Garden
Also popular for morning dives are the two dive spots in the North of Gili Trawangan, Coral Fan Garden and Basket Coral Garden. The first few meters you have the feeling of being in an aquarium - schools of colored fairy bass lets, fusiliers, banner fishesâ€¦ and deeper, around the big coral and stone blocks, groupers, batfish, trumpet fish, hiding octopus and bearded scorpion fish. Look out to the blue: sometimes eagle rays, mantas or reef sharks can be seen.
One of our favorite dive spot is Frog Fish Point in the East of Gili Air, famous for small things and rarities. A huge coral block from 5m - 18m welcomes you - there are a lot of sandy areas, where the garden eels let off steam and corals are overgrown with anemones and their clownfish. You can find for example ghost pipefish, frogfish and a lot of scorpion fish. Have a manicure there by one of the many cleaner shrimps.
In the rainy season, when the water is rich with plankton, this dive site in the South of Gili Trawangan gives you the best chance to see Manta rays. But even without mantas, you still have a good chance to see reef sharks and turtles.
Underwater canyons create the landscape here with a plateau starting at 10m and dropping down to 40m. Here you can see everything. Mantas, blue spotted stingrays, scorpion fish, lionfish, and white tips have been encountered here as well as spiny lobsters.
