    • How to get there?

      by RPMB Online Now Feb 20, 2012 at 1:35 AM

      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!

      Hi All,

      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.
