KUKUP CHANNEL & KUKUP ISLAND NATIONAL PARK

Shelter can be found between Kukup Island and Kukup Town anywhere in the deep basin away from the hundreds of floating fish farms.

Approaching from the south, pass the Kukup Outer flashing Lateral Green and White special light on starboard to avoid the 1-metre mud bank. Anchor anywhere in the calmer areas north of the Lateral Red light off the Pulau Kukup National Park sign.

On the mainland is the bright yellow CIQ ferry terminal with immigration and daily connections to Indonesian Sekupang Batam and Karimun Rau islands. There are plenty of colourful stilted seafood restaurants on the mainland side with excellent local fare and a rustic local town. Across the channel, Kukup Island is a National Park with a long jetty and a 1-kilometre suspended boardwalk through the mangroves to an observation deck.
