Our dive sites around the Secret Gili Islands suits for everyone, no matter if or what certification level you have. Make your holiday memorable and enjoy one of the richest marine life diversities in the Indo-Pacific. We have selected the best of the 12 dives site for you and will do 3 dives per day, on request also a night dive.
We will start from Gili Air at 6 a.m. on Day 1, pick up guests from Gili Trawangan and head straight south to Gili Gede to start the first dive at 9 a.m. Three dives per day are planned plus one night dive. Discover various kind of shrimps like cleaner shrimp, peacock mantis shrimp or crabs and lobster while drifting along the wall in the north of Gili Gede. In the shallower part it is not uncommon to run into turtles.
During the 1st night we anchor in the north west bay of Gili Gede and propose a spectacular sunset village walk.
At Shark House you dive along a sunken Island, Gili Anyaran, a sandy slope with rocks
covered with soft and hard corals. Currently three baby white tip sharks and the mother shark are housing at the shark house, so the chances seeing them chilling under their rock are very good. Besides the sharks this dive side is the best site to find blue spotted sting rays, mantis shrimp, thornback boxfish, scorpion fish and much more.
2nd night we anchor at Banko Banko bay (this is where the more challenging dive sites are)
3rd night at Gili Golong (our truly preferred secret island) here for beach BBQ and party. All these dive sites are close by and can be done in any order.
Outside of the diving time we offer a wide range of water sport activities as we have on board 3 kayaks, 4 paddle boats and one sub-wing. So fun is guaranteed. Not to forget the stunning sunsets and sunrises and our BBQ on the beach on the last night. Even 2 monkeys can be visited on one of the island or a village with cute children. Or we simply take you to hidden beaches on islands without any house to relax and forget the world around you on a white sandy beach, sunshine, crystal clear water and nothing else.
End of the trip.
On the last day, we will do 2 dives and then take the people back to Gili Air/ Trawangan (trip Aug 6-9) or to a harbor where a free private taxi takes you back to Bangsal harbor and Gili Air/Trawangan (trip Aug 12-15). For those that wish to go directly to Bali, we can take you to the Gili Gede harbor (direct connection to Serangan).
