A longhorn cowfish, the first time I spot this fish species
During the IDC
I did a few dives with Iggy, who completed his IDC in February on Gili Air
. Because there's immediately a house reef in front of PADI 5* IDC Center 'Oceans 5' where I conduct my IDC's it was easy to complete a few days straight after classes.
A ringed pipefish
One of the dives happened to be my 1900th dive
, a nice milestone and now I'm looking forward to my 2000th dive, which I don't expect before next year. Today we will have one more deep dive, later on during the early morning!
John was wearing DUP approved shorts during the dives!
The dive sites around the Gili islands cater to everybody, thee's lots of macro dive sites with small critters but white tip reef sharks, bumpheads, big mantas and the like can also be spotted. pending on what dive site you visit. It's really worthwhile visiting here and getting wet!
Blue spotted sting ray
It was great to be here again and I'm already looking forward to my next PADI IDC on Gili Air, scheduled to start 18th August.
