Anambas archipelago (Indonesian: Kepulauan Anambas) is a small archipelago of Indonesia, located 150 nautical miles north east of Batam Island in the South China Sea between the Malaysian mainland to the west and the island of Borneo to the east. Geographically part of the Tudjuh Archipelago, it is administratively a regency within the Riau Islands Province.
Anambas have a large reserve of natural gas that is exported to countries such as Singapore and Malaysia. The island of Matak is the main base for oil exploration. Other islands are Siantan (Terempa), Mubur, Jemaja and Kiabu (Airabu).
According to CNN, the Anambas Islands are one of Southeast Asia's most spectacular coastal spots, with good snorkelling and diving. The main island, Pulau Bawah, is an unhabitated naturally protected lagoon. The shipwrecked vessels Seven Skies and Igara attract a variety of indigenous marine life and offer diving opportunities.
The Fishermen Dive Team dives with the liveaboard vessel MV Andaman Tritan during the Anambas diving season, April to October, when it sails to our waters from Thailand. Don't miss out on this chance to experience the beautiful Anambas Islands, and the wrecks that behold in the South China Sea!
