Kapoposang is one of the largest of
the Spermonde Islands, around 70 km northwest of Makassar, South Sulawesi.
Kapoposang covers an area of around 50,000 hectares and is inhabited by around
100 families. Several other islands, both inhabited and uninhabited, lie near
Kapoposang. The larger ones include Papandangan, Kondongbali, Suranti and
Kapoposang and the nearby islands
were declared a Nature Tourism Park by the Department of Forestry in 1999.
Diving has been an important activity at Kapoposang. There were so few local
divers at the time, and because of the distance from other well-known diving
areas in Indonesia, Kapoposang has basically remained a secret.
The best time to visit Kapoposang
is between April and November, when the seas are calm, the weather favorable,
and the wind less fierce than in the other months. The trip takes two hours by
speedboat; the ocean breezes help to cool your skin in the hot morning sun.
As you approach Pulau Kapoposang, you see the deep blue water, which suddenly
meets an expanse of coral reefs between extensive shallows with white sands in
the seabed. Sea grass also grows lushly near the shore. The sea bed at
Kapoposang has a unique composition; near the island are some quite shallow
contours, and then suddenly steep underwater cliffs leading to seemingly
endless depths. The water is very clear; you can expect underwater visibility
of over 15 meters – ideal conditions for divers.
