East Kalimantan Trip | Day 2/4 : Exploring Islands


Good Morning from Derawan

Yeah!Second day!Couldn’t get more exciting than woke up early (+1 from Jakarta) when everybody was still sleeping back home. We were planning to snorkel and met Whale Shark! Yeap, Whale Shark! You can read about whale shark here


First time Snorkeling

This was my first time to do snorkeling. Some more, the first experience to snorkel was in the middle of the sea! With the Whale Shark too! *o* I was scared at first…but I wouldn’t sink because I was wearing the life vest. I can swim but not that good, so I didn’t trust myself to swim here.


I’m on the left (not the whale shark) :p

After that we went to Kakaban Island, but stop by Sangalaki Island before the low tide. The island coast consists of corals, so if we were late, our speed boat couldn’t come to the island.



Here we are at Sangalaki Island

Sangalaki Island is an island where turtle baby (Tukik in Indonesia) is taken care from egg till they are ready to go to the sea.
