43 miles from Sorong

SOUTH PULAU BATANTA. 0°54.715S, 130°33.038E

Anchor on sand in 40-42 metres off the small indent bay with the creek at the western end of the beach. This is a day anchorage only due to the wide open southern exposure.

This is a good spot to wait for the tide to turn when making a journey back to Sorong along the bottom of Batanta. Water can be collected from the creek onshore, but keep an eye for crocodiles that have been occasionally spotted along this coast. Dive charter boats regularly stop and dive here on their way back to Sorong.
