If anybody ,ll be please to tell me the actual schedule - public boat or ferry- between Derawan and Tarakan, Drerawan and Tanjung Batu....I am solo traveller, need to find most budget transfer to Derawan Island, planning trip in May 2015/
I can't find accomodation online for Pulau Derawan. Would you recommend to book ahead? We are going 25th of March.
Do you all have a contact of boat rental in Derawan? Also the nice cheap guest house if you have one..
I have planned my trip to Derawan on this coming 25-28th Sept, A local, En. Narton offer to provide this service to me for IRP2,150,000, the offer package including return transport from Berau to Derawan by car and speed boat for 2 pax, lodging for 3 nights in Derawan, would be appreciate if someone can advise if this offer is reasonable or perhaps there are better alternative option, I'll need to make my decision very soon, therefore your early inputs will be much appreciated.
I can get the ferry from Tawau to Tarakan. I guess I have to stay there overnight. Then the ferry to Tanjung Batu. But how to I get from there out to Pulau Derewan? And can I stay in one of the Losmen (maybe Losmen Danakan?) and find a Dive Centre to arrange my own diving? Thanks!
how much is scuba diving in Pulau Derawan?
Can anybody advise whether diving at Berau during late Dec period will be a good idea? Not sure when monsoon season is affecting that part of the country.
Many thanks in advance
