Here are some commonly asked questions answered to help you on your way here!
A scuba diving day consists of three dives. Some days, single trips are made to nearby dive sites, allowing for surface interval or lunch time to be spent at the resort.
On excursions to farther dive sites like Kakaban or Sangalaki, surface intervals will be spent onboard the speedboat (or at Kakaban jetty). Divers will be provided with towel, light refreshments and packed lunch.
Electricity is 220V and 2 pin sockets are used here.
Please bring a copy of your dive insurance and your dive certification card.
Your passport must be valid at least for another 6 months at the time you enter Indonesia and has to have at least one empty page for the visa. Contact your embassy for more details.
While we provide shampoo and shower gel, do make sure to bring toiletries and medication you need as we do not have a mini-mart at the resort for the moment.
Light clothing and sunglasses for the day and a thin sweater for cool evenings. Mosquito repellant is advised due to our proximity to the jungle.
Towels are provided at the dive centre and in the rooms.
The dive centre has a limited inventory of rental dive and snorkelling equipment, including mask, snorkel, regulator, BCD, fins, booties, dive torch, delayed surface marker buoy, and reef hook. Divers are advised to bring your own dive computer.
We have basic first aid kits at the restaurant, dive centre and dive boats that are sufficient for small cuts and common illnesses.
There is a small hospital on Maratua for small injuries. The next nearest hospital is in Berau, a 3-hour boat ride away.
In case of a dive emergency, your dive insurance provider will advise us on the appropriate course of action. We recommend DAN insurance as they cover emergency evacuation.
