Maratua Atoll and Nunukan Island - diving in paradise 
30 sept - 10 oct 2020

Experience - Maratua Atoll and Nunukan Island is very remotely located between Borneo and Sulawesi and here in the richest waters in the world you will experience a tropical paradise far and remote from almost everything. To this remote place there is only flight a week with private charter or five hours boat ride to Borneo. Amazing coral reefs with a lot of fish and an abundance of invertebrates, add to this manta rays and sharks and for real it's quite common to see the beatiful thresher shark in one of the newly discovered dive sites. Join our ambassador Bent Christensen to paradise!!

Tips and ideas and socialising - Join us to the exotic pearl in the middle of nowhere in the Indonesian archipelague. Apart from diving you will have chance to meet orangutangs in Borneo . We will talk about diving, travel and Per will be at hand and tell more about different and distant destinations and give advise, tips and ideas for future travelling and what can be good to think about when you arrive in different countries and destinations. To this of course really relaxing and variated diving including small invertebrates, big fish, currents, reefs, walls and big fish and big schools of fish.

Lodging - Enroute to Nunukan Island we will stay at Samboja Lodge out in the djungle and here we have a full day with orangutangs and other wild animals before we head for the diving. ts on the way out and after we will have one night in hotel in Balikpapan on the way back. In Nunukan Island we will be accomodated at the resort in bungalows and here we have half board during the visit. Of course diving is included and we have a prebooked 10 dive package with possibility to upgrade to trips to surrounding islands. Sangalaki with its manta rays and Kakaban Island with Jelly fish lake we highly recommend.

Ambassador Bent Christensen - Bent has been diving since 1999 and has worked as a tour leader on diving trips since 2005. Through his great interest in biology, benefit has been able to combine with pleasure. Bent has dived in most of the world's warm waters, but currently focuses mostly on Indonesia and the Philippines. On trips with Bent, there will be the opportunity to get help and tips with their photography, to get help with figuring out what you saw during the dive, and in different ways, often shorter and informal lectures, to get more coherent information on different aspects of coral reef ecology.

Maratua Atoll and Nunukan Island

We start the trip with two nights in the djungle at  Samboja Lodge where we have a chance to adjust to the time difference and at the same time meet the "forrest man" the orangutang and several other enocunters in the djungle. After this we fly with Extra Divers chartered jet to Maratua and after this we have a short boat ride to Nunukan Island. Here on the island we will be accommodated for the next week and for you have an opportunity we highly recommend to extenct a week with for example Nabucco Island resort just a short boat ride away. Here you can experience schools with jacks and barracudas, reef sharks and good chances to to see mantas and thresher sharks and to this also an abundance of invertebrates. There is a reason why this is called big fish country.

Nunukan and the atoll here has deep surrounding waters and acts like a magnet to big fish and a lot of marine life. Apart from the diving we are accommodated nicely and breakfasts and dinners are included in the tour. On the island we will relax and talk about diving and travelling, sharing ideas, tips and experiences and other things.

Nunukan Island is for real a jewel in the ocean nestled between Borneo and Sulawesi and still there are relatively few who had the opportunity to come to this place far from mass tourism and it's for sure a true tiny paradise island in the middle of nowhere.
