A South African and a Brazilian national have died after their boat capsized in rough seas near Bali, the search-and-rescue agency said Monday.
The small tourist vessel flipped near the treacherous Devil's Tear cove on Nusa Lembongan, east of the Indonesian holiday island.
The boat's passengers, a 48-year-old Brazilian and a 43-year-old South African, were declared dead in hospital, the agency said.
The boat's 35-year-old captain survived with serious injuries, it added.
Maritime accidents are not uncommon in Indonesia, a Southeast Asian archipelago of some 17,000 islands where safety standards are often lax.
