The Walls and Deep DiveSite of Lombok and Gili Islands
The ocean around the Gili Islands drops off to over 1200 meters and is swept by tidal currents keeping water clear and clean. We have also enjoyed a protected status from fishing for many years and the less visited deeper areas are pristine, providing tremendous topography and a variety of fascinating marine life such as oceanic sun fish (mola mola), sharks, rays, turtles and a variety of other pelagics.
The diving is predominantly drift diving, although some sites have windows of several hours without current. Most sites are walls and reefs, and if you like wreck diving we have a WWII Japanese Submarine Chaser resting upright at 45 meters. Deep walls range from 40 meters to over 150 meters. A great number of these deeper walls and reefs give relatively easy access to shallow water for decompression, others drifting open water decompression is normal.
