The Full Moon Affect

We all know that the moon controls the tides, but maybe not many of us know that the moon can also affect the currents and underwater organisms. When the moon is full, and the tide is low, around the three Gilis the current is affected by increasing their strength. These currents can be quite tricky to deal with but can also make your dive more enjoyable as you can relax, knowing you wont have to kick! As well as this you can also see these beautiful fish!

These are Bumphead Parrotfish and are very majestic in the water. Usually in schools of between 13-16 they are amazing to witness when they come shallower for the full moon.
