Dive site: Gondol Reef - Bali West
Time to destination: 20min
Difficulty: non to little
Tips: good place for big fish
Gondol Reef; Another new and little explored location which is proving
good for big fish. The northern end is proving to be mainly very nice
wall the eastern end dropping into the blue. Local fishermen claim tiger
shark can be found in this location, but no dive master from David's
Dive Sport has yet to see one and all trips have returned unscathed J
This reef is good until 10mtrs then becomes patchy with large sand areas
interspersed with small clumps of coral.
Marine Life: usual, snapper, trevally, batfish, sweet lips, angelfish and fusiliers.
Unusual stuff: frogfish, pipefish, many interesting nude branches, scorpion fish and octopus.
Occasional stuff: Big rays, shark, (in rainy season a whale shark was
spotted, April 2004 saw a pair whale out in this direction chasing the
seasonal influx of small shoaling fish).
