This dive site in the Gili Islands has been likened to an aquarium because of the numbers and variety of marine life you will find diving here. It is drift dive where divers can see thousands of fish swimming against the current. It gets its name however, from the large Gorgonian fans that are here in abundance. Most of the fans here have bright red skeletons and white polyps, which adds to the variety of colour in the area.
The dive site is suitable for all level of divers from beginning to experienced and it is a great site for underwater photographers. The visibility is very good and currents tend not to be that strong but can become very strong. The coral starts at about 3 metres and goes down to about 25 metres. The coral fans are growing on large bommies where there are many other soft and corals also growing.
Every month a few days after the full moon, Humphead parrotfish congregate here but it is also common to spot octopus and turtles. Divers can spot small copper Sweepers, cuttlefish, clown triggerfish, titan triggerfish, sweet lips, tunas and snapper fish. There will be schools of basslets, fusiliers, and banner fish as well as trumpet fish, scorpion fish, batfish, groupers, eagle rays, and reef sharks. There are too many fish to name at this site and divers will struggle to count the many species they find such.
