Dive against Debris Distinctive Specialty

PADI 5 star IDC Dive Resort Oceans 5 Gili Air is taking scuba diving to the next level! Have you ever joined a Reef Clean Up or did you ever collected plastic, ropes and fishing nets underwater while you were diving? Marine Debris is a major problem for our Ocean, for the world and for us!

Dive against Debris Distinctive Specialty at dive resort Oceans 5 Gili Islands Indonesia

Dive against Debris Distinctive Specialty at dive resort Oceans 5 Gili Islands Indonesia

Oceans 5 like to educate more people about how important it is to save our ocean, be aware of the debris problems and how WE can change it. Every little step is an improvement. That is why Oceans 5 starts teaching this course.

Dive against Debris Distinctive Specialty at dive resort Oceans 5 Gili Islands Indonesia

Dive against Debris Distinctive Specialty at dive resort Oceans 5 Gili Islands Indonesia

Oceans 5 will introduce a new PADI course: Dive against debris distinctive specialty.

Every year tens of thousands of marine animals and seabirds die from eating or getting tangled up
in marine debris – or trash in the ocean. Marine debris also damages habitats, makes coastal areas unattractive to visit and is expensive to remove. As much as seventy percent of the rubbish entering our ocean sinks to the seafloor; only divers have the skills to tackle underwater marine debris.

To make long-term improvements individuals, businesses and governments need to make changes that stop rubbish from entering the ocean. For the best results, these changes must be driven by an accurate picture of the extent of the marine debris problem. By completing Dive Against Debris surveys the participants help build that picture from an underwater perspective. The data you collect through Dive Against Debris helps drive changes that protect marine life and marine environments.

Dive against Debris Distinctive Specialty 2

The course aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills to complete Dive Against Debris surveys including the removal of marine debris underwater, and reporting the data online. Dive Against Debris surveys and the data submitted are essential to help drive change and inform policy. Completing regular Dive Against Debris surveys at the same location over time is the best way to build a comprehensive database and identify hotspot areas where waste management needs to be prioritized. Oceans 5 likes to build a team of surveyors who regularly complete Dive Against Debris surveys.

The Gili Islands are famous. They are part of North Lombok, Indonesia. And they are well known for their turquoise water a waving palm trees. The Gili Islands are 3 little islands, Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air. All islands are different and have their own characteristics.

Diving is amazing around the Gili Islands. There are other publications about the Gilis about bombing, damaged coral, no marine life… But most of the publications are made by persons who didn’t stay that long on the Gili Islands and were disappointed in the lack of color of the coral.

The Gili Islands are mostly surrounded by hard corals, and hard corals are mostly night feeder. Their colorful polyps will be showed at night when they come out the hard base. This doesn’t mean that ther Gili Islands doesn’t have beautiful coral. The Gili Islands have a enormous variety of coral. And this is all ready proven by a lot of academic studies.

Another point about the marine life: Around the Gili islands you can find everything you like. Sure you can find turtles. The Gili Islands are famous for them. The Hawksbill and Green Sea Turtles are frequently spotted during some dives. Another attraction will be the Bumphead pariot fish during the days around full moon. These will visit the shallow parts of the reefs sometimes in schools of 50 pieces.

And don’t forget the White and Black tip reef sharks around the Gili Islands. These are friendly sharks, nothing to be afraid of.

If you love Macro there are sites where you can find the Frogfish, Mandarin Fish, Seahorses, Leaf Scorpion, Ribbon Eels, Snake Eels and Nudies. Oceans 5 is specialized in spotting all these little creatures.

Manadrin fish around the Gili Islands

After a dive there are a lot of opportunities on the Gili Islands to have lunch, dinner or a drink. On most islands you can choose from all different cuisines.
