Join George and Diane on the vacation of a life time.  From April 30 to May 11, 2018 in beautiful and exotic Derawan Islands, Indonesia

Derawan Islands is part of the Coral Triangle which contains one of the richest marine biodiversity environments on earth.  Derawan Islands feature 872 species of reef fishes, 507 species of coral, and invertebrates including protected species (5 giant clam species, 2 sea turtles, (green and hawksbill), coconut crab, etc.)  Some of the islands harbor the heavily exploited turtle eggs and yet is the largest green turtle nesting site in Indonesia.  Derawan Islands is a nesting beach for sea turtles.

The Derawan Islands have at least two lakes containing non-stinging jellyfish, one in Kakaban Island and the other in Maratua Island.  We will be able to snorkel in one of these.

Diving in Derawan Islands have the same diversity as the wild life.  Everything from macro to the big stuff.  Manta ray dives along beautiful reefs with schools of tropical fish and sharks.  The macro life offers all the small and rare shrimp, crabs, and strange aquatic life found only in the coral triangle.  You will find various types of octopi, as well as lion fish and other rarely seen creatures, if we're lucky.
