Diving at Derawan is very diverse, ranging from spectacular wall dives to wreck and shore dives.
Our small and cozy Derawan Dive Lodge is located on the island of Derawan, which is the main island of the same-named archipelago just off the coast of East Kalimantan in Indonesia. Built on a private white sandy beach, the lodge with its just 10 rooms is a perfect place for everyone who likes the personal touch in his holiday. It is this very personal touch that makes the difference. Its size creates its own uniqueness and the feel of a boutique resort. However whilst maintaining our ‘lodge’ tag, we strive to emulate a resort standard given the limited resources on the island.
There is an incredible diversity of small marine life in the shallows, as well as an ever dominant presence of turtles cruising the reef edge in deeper water. Add to this one of only two stingless Jellyfish lakes in the world and you’re up for a perfect diving holiday!
With two 14m purpose built dive boats and a fully self-contained dive centre including NITROX, along with professional friendly service, the Derawan Dive Lodge caters for guests who want to experience diving at its best. Our highly trained and experienced Tasik Divers team lives for the diving, so each one is the ideal buddy for your Tasik diving experience.

Got more time to spare?
Split your holiday between our Scuba & Culture Safaris in Bali and North Sulawesi’s Tasik Ria Resort Manado and/or our new Derawan Dive Lodge in East Kalimantan.
In Bali, discover the Liberty wreck at Tulamben, the serene sights of Menjangan, mantas in Nusa Penida and, depending on season, the famous sunfishes (Mola-Mola). Then see North Sulawesi’s fabulous muck diving places and the colourful walls of the Bunaken National Park. Or visit Derawan for a chance to see mantas, schooling barracudas, pygmy seahorses, blue-ring octopus, frogfish and a lot more. Plus a lake with non-stinging jellyfish, one of only two in the world!
