Gili Tepekong – Bali is the biggest offshore island in Amuk Bay, its location is actually closer from Candidasa resort, with its jagged boulder make up the access is difficult from there, due to the reef barrier which runs along the beach which forms large waves rolling into the coastline. Therefore Padang Bai is the safest access point to get access to Gili Tepekong and its easiest by boat These vary from the simple wooden fishing boats to modern fiberglass boats with a variety of passengers capacity. There are two diving points of interest at this place: Blue Hole (northeast) and Canyon (southwest). This is a great location for spotting, White or Black Tip Reef Sharks, there is some very cool swim through, the currents can get a little hard at some points of the dive as well as the surge. so we ask that you are in good physical condition to take on this dive site as it can be a little challenging. This is an Advanced Dive Site and divers must have a minimum of 10 logged dives beyond PADI Open Water or PADI Advanced Diver Certification
