Mantanani Island

Diriwan Island

Pulau Tiga comes to fame for the rest of the world, because it is the island that feature in the reality show, called The Survival series. Pulau Tiga is an volcanic island, and there is mud pool where one can bath in volcanic mud. One can also explore the snake island next door.

My experience as a diver… diving is like a work day, everything must be so on time, 9am first dive, 11 am second dive, and 2 am 3rd dive… one can opt for 4th dive in the evening dive… Here a quote I saw at Sipadan Island “A bad day at diving is better than a good day at work.”
