92 miles from Sorong
There are a couple of moorings regularly used by dive boats on the north side of Pulau Yilliet. If these are taken drop anchor nearby in 45-55 metres on a coral and sand bottom. Some of the finest diving and snorkelling in Indonesia is found in and around the adjacent islands.
The iconic Misool Eco Resort is only four miles southwest on Pulau Batbitiem. The resort supports an extensive ‘No Take Zone’ programme and expects all visitors to report prior to diving in the surrounding areas. They monitor VHF on Ch.16 and 20 and visits can be arranged with prior appointment.
While every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this book is accurate, the charts of anchorages are based on personal experience and satellite imagery and are intended as a guide only. They should not be used for navigation. Please refer to Official Hydrographic Charts of the respective countries.
