    fisherman's boat

    by aalayaa Written Nov 26, 2007

    if you visit derawan, don't forget to visit the other islands nearby: sangalaki, kakaban and maratua. to get there, just rent a boat from fishermen. to get contact with the fisherman, just ask your hotel manager. he'll be more than happy to help you.
    it takes 2-3 hours to get to other islands.

    4 seaters speed boat

    The small boat w/ the driver

    From Berau airport, go by car 20 min to harbour, there find speed boat to take u to Derawan island.
    The trip takes 2,5 hrs if weather is good. 1,5 hr u go cruising thru Mahakam river then 1 hr thru the ocean.
    This is the hardest part of the journey since the water is very choppy and the bumpy boat makes literally 'pain in the ass'

    Small plane

    From Balikpapan u fly by this kinda plane to Tanjung Redeb/Berau. This plane is so small so they require u to scale your body weight and baggage. So don't bring too heavy things and perhaps u should go on diet before going to Derawan? :-P
    Fly by KalStar ot DAS, cost around Rp 550,000/pax/1 way.

    speed boat after Sangalaki

    To get to other islands around Derawan (Sangalaki, Kakaban, Maratua), u have to rent a speed boat. It cost a lot, so u better share with other guests. Boat rent cost Rp 500,000 - Rp 750,000 per day.
