Indonesia / Extra Divers Virgin Cocoa

Dive center and boats are equipped with all necessary gadgets (oxygen, first aid kit, radio), the next doctor is in Berau, and the closest decompression chamber is located in Balikpapan. All dive master and instructors are trained in first aid.
Just a few steps afar from the dive center, the house reef - stretching along for about 4 km- welcomes all divers the whole day long for spectacular diving experiences.

The island is closed between 11.01.-15.02. 2020

Diving/Dive spots

The huge house reef surrounding both islands Virgin Cocoa and Nunukan offers no less than 7 dive spots, stunning guests with incredibly diverse and healthy coral landscapes. While a resident school of big-eye jacks, turtles, barracudas, eagle rays and sharks are a regular sight at “Nunukan Express”, the shallows are no less impressive with moray eels, pigmy sea horses, nudibranches, orang utan crabs and sea snakes all being present.
The legendary spots like Mantapoint Sangalaki, the jellyfish lake in Kakaban or the shark channel in Big Fish Country are part of our diving portfolio. Starting from a great variety of macro creatures up to the encountering of big fish: everything is possible here!

Highlight: Muaras Atoll (exclusively reached from Nunukan and Virgin Cocoa.)
This huge atoll South of the islands is largely undiscovered at this point with Extra Divers offering explorer trips on request. Exceptional reef walls covered in colorful soft corals, crevices inhabited by spiny lobsters, many stingrays and whip-tail stingrays, turtles as well as white-tip reef sharks and grey reef sharks make for impressive dives. Even a spot for frequent encounters with the rare and graceful thresher sharks was discovered not too long ago.
