It seems we have a few boat repairs ahead of us in this beautiful, tropical paradise.

Before the work and boat jobs, there was diving to be done, a jellyfish lake to visit and lobster to be eaten. The stunning Derawan islands were calling to us…

Here’s a rough guide to the chapters in our latest YouTube episode:

  • Local community comes to our aid
  • Derawan dive lodge
