GILI MIMPANG & GILI TEPEKONG

Specially designed for Advance Open Water certified divers, these two dive sites are probably the most challenging dive sites in Bali. World known as deep dives and famous for seeing the Mola Molas, it is attracting divers from all around the world for that reason specifically. Often however White Tip Reef sharks as well as Bamboo sharks and Nurse sharks are spotted.

The Mola Mola usually live very deep (and therefore not easy to see) but during the months of September, October and November they come up to shallow waters to be cleaned of their parasites. Every year some divers get lucky and see Mola Mola outside the normal season.

Gili Mimpang & Gili Tepekong dive sites

For this dive site the Mola Mola cleaning station is located at approximately 30 meters deep which makes it already necessary to have an AOW certificate an 25+ logged dives. Often there is current and almost every time the White Tip Reef Sharks can be seen swimming around. When there is no current however, the White Tip Reef Sharks like to stay on the sandy bottom at 27 meters deep.

Tepekong is a dive site with at least 100 different types of very healthy corals where there is a shark cave. Although entrance is not permitted in the cave, staying at the entrance of it can allow to see White Tip Reef baby sharks.

In this dive site as there is no Mola Mola cleaning station, the sun fish can be observed as they are moving around. Often schools of Sweet Lips fish can be observed as well as schools of Yellow  Snapper.
