Air Wall - All Levels

gili air dive siteWall Dive. Depth: 5-24 M, a 10-minute boat ride from the Dive Center. Beginner to Advanced.

A steep wall extending from 10 m down to 24 m running parallel to shore on the South West side of Gili Air. An excellent Macro dive site featuring colorful Gorgonian Sea Fans, Sea Whips, Soft Corals, and a variety of Sponges. This site never ceases to delight with amazing soft corals contrasting dramatically in the shadow of the wall.  It is always a dramatic dive to complete as part of your Open Water or Advanced Adventurer Courses as the wall provides beautiful topography.  

A variety of vibrantly colored Nudibranchs can be found here, as well as Pygmy Seahorses, juvenile Sweetlips, Orangutan Crabs, Octopus, Wire Coral Gobies and Wire Coral Shrimps.  The soft corals hang from the wall out into the current creating a beautiful profile and several overhangs provide perfect shelter for Painted Lobsters and Banded Pipefish.  

Along the shallow part of the site, divers can find soft coral gardens and coral bommies often frequented by Sea Turtles, and a variety of tropical fish including Anemone Fish, Triggerfish, Angelfish and Butterflyfish. A swift current can often be present at this dive site making it an ideal location for Drift Diving. Please contact us to book your place on Air Wall.
