The spectacular scenery and abundance of marine life make Pulau Batee a favourite spot for divers.
On that island you can enjoy fishing and snorkelling, as well as jungle trekking or explore under water caves.
The flood sets E from about LW to about HW at rates of from 3.5 to 4 knots and the ebb W at rates of 4.5 to 5 knots. The ebb is usually of longer duration than the flood and there is but little slack water. At neap tides and also during the Northeast Monsoon there is little or no or flood or ebb current.
A dangerous eddy is off Lumpat; when combined with the tidal current between Pulau Bunta and Pulau Batee, it can cause a confused sea. Sometimes this assumes the character of a whirlpool.
