Dive conditions vary throughout the year depending on the season. The visibility is regularly 20m or more, however in rainy season this might drop to about 10m. The water temperatures vary between 27 to 30 degrees Celsius.
We have more than 20 dive sites around the gilis which cover levels from dive beginners to experienced divers. Around the Gilis are walls, slopes and drop offs. You will very likely see turtles, sharks and cuttle fish, with a bit of luck ghost pipe fish and definitely all kinds of angelfish and more.

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 cuttle fish 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 whalesharks on occasions, usually around January to March!
