The water temperature averages at 28 degrees and the visibility varies throughout the year but can be as clear as 30m+. The Gilis are protected by Lombok, but there are often strong currents, which means the majority of our dives are drift dives. If you haven’t been for drift dives before: we can assure you, it’s so much fun!
If you’ll participate as a shark warrior for our research team, you will receive your next level of diving certification from our affiliated dive centre, Oceans5 Dive Resort. They give you the possibility to prepare theory from home via PADI eLearning. You can do all your theory for the dive course online,before your arrival in Indonesia, so you don’t need to spend any time in the classroom. You can dive straight into the practical part of your course.
After your training you will join the rest of the research team doing survey dives, BRUV drops, photographic identification on sharks and turtles and data analysis.
