A few days ago it was time for 17 Olive Ridley turtles to go into the big blue. After a stay of 6 months in the water basins of Oceans 5 dive resort, these turtles were big enough to stay a long time underwater and enjoy their natural enviroment of the sea.

Oceans 5 wants to thank all the people who were taking care of these turtles, Simone Sauren (marine biologist), Nun, Bahry, Madjid and Rizal. And ofcourse all the people who donate some so that the turtles become stong and healthy enough to return to the sea.

At this moment Oceans 5 dive resort has still 50 Olive Ridleys in the water basisins. They have to wait for an other release when the are bigger and stronger to see the blue.

For the released turtles enjoy your freedom, maybe we see you during a dive…..!

Reef Clean up with Oceans 5 dive resort the 8th of February

Oceans 5 dive resort, Gili Islands, organise every wednesday during the low season a Reef Clean Up. The Reef clean Up is totally free and everyone can join.

People who are certified divers can join the clean up underwater while the others can help to clean the beaches or the boat crew with collecting the rubbish from the divers.



Every raining season there comes a lot of rubbish from the ocean into the little harbor of Gili Air. The harbor of Gili Air is a fantastic place to muck dive. And it will a shame that this all will disapear if we dont do anything. To be sure that we can still enjoy the beauty of the Ornate Gostpipe fish, Frog fish, Mandarine fish, Mimic octopus, and much much more we organise these clean ups.

Last wednesday Oceans 5 organised another Clean Up and it was a huge success. Students, fundivers, locals, staff and instructors were helping to get rid of all the rubbish.

If you are interested in joining the Reef Clean Up or if you want more information about the Clean Ups send us an email to info@oceans5dive.com
