Explore diving around the Derawan Dive Lodge

What to see

Turtles, massive reefs, bustling anemones and more await you in Borneo. The warm waters brings in troves of plankton, which in turn brings in macro marine life. You can see whale sharks, dolphins, and whales on a dive in these crystal clear waters. In the calm shallows you might come across yellow rays with vibrant blue spots as they glide across the sandy bottom.

Keep a keen eye on the coral reefs, where tiny creatures like nudibranchs and eels hide in crevices.
