Air Slope

gili air sea turtlePatch Reef. Depth: 5-24 M, a 15-minute boat ride from the Dive Center. Beginner to Advanced.

Large and small coral outcroppings nestled along a sandy slope and a gentle current make this dive site ideal for a leisurely drift dive.  This site is located in the shadow of Gili Air and is almost always sheltered from any strong currents or waves.  It is an ideal site for beginner divers completing the Open Water course or Try Scuba Diving.  

Blue Spotted Stingrays can be found along the sandy areas in the deeper part of this dive site, while Magnificent Anemones, Sea Turtles, Nudibranchs and brightly colored Gorgonian Sea Fans gather around the bommies throughout the dive site.  Air Slope is also a great place to hunt for elusive juvenile fishes including Sweetlips, Boxfish, Rock Mover Wrasse, and Angelfish.  Of course, on the top of the reef in the shallows, there are often Hawksbill Turtles feeding on algae.  This reef provides the chilled out dive experience typical on a dive in the Gili Islands.
