    Diving near Jakarta

    Octopus at Night

    If you have some extra time in Jakarta, you may wish to go diving outside of Pulau Seribu (1000 Islands) for a weekend. This short dive trip involved taking a ~2 hour boat ride out of a marina in Jakarta early in the morning on Saturday and spending the night in a island resort (Matahari Resort), which in itself was the island, all of a 5 minute walking lap. After three dives on Saturday and two on Sunday, it was time to take the return boat back to Jakarta. The facilities were not extravagant, but were comfortable. Diving likewise was not the best of the world, but beats a good day at work any time. Waters were warm, visibility was ~30ft due to heavy plankton and currents, but that just made the soft corals and small reef fish that much more healthy. There were lots of smaller reef fish and schools, health soft corals, and active nocturnal critters during the night.

    Pulau Perak Beach

    There are 3 good spots where you can snorkel around Sepa.
    1. on the beach near Sepa, the left part of the beach where Guritas Cottages was located
    2. in Pulau Perak - 10 minutes by boat from Sepa
    3. Taman Karang - Near Pulau Sepa kecil

    It is best to snorkel in the morning where the wave isn't so strong. I was snorkeling at 3 pm in Pulau Perak and Taman Karang. It was pretty hard going back to the boat as I was swimming against the waves.

    I knew those spots from Pak Manaf, local villager. We rented his boat for snorkel trip. He even accompanied me snorkeling and show me where the good corals were. A very nice guy.

    Equipment: Better bring your own Mask, snorkel and fin.
    Ody Dive shop located in the back of the front office rent snorkeling set for 65,000 rupiah or mask and snorkel only for 47,000 rupiah
