This is a small island with a huge lake inside. After Palau it is the best place in the world to find non-stinging jellyfish. It is an unforgettable experience to swim without fear surrounded by jellies.

Sponges growing on the overhanging branches of the trees in the jellyfish lake of Kakaban island. I used a 10.5mm lens on a Nikon D200 camera with both my Inon strobes underwater on the side of the housing to get this shot.

Picture taken at Kakaban jelly fish lake in Indonesia. With a Sony 6500 camera, nautical housing and Inon 240 strobe. I made this round circle manually. The sky looks like the earth and the jelly fish looks like a space ship.

Two small white tip reef sharks live under the hard coral at Kakaban island, Indonesia. One of them has a hook in the mouth. If you have any chance diving there, please say hello.
