The objectives of this research is to find out underwater information such as water depth and position of the underwater target using Multibeam and Side Scan Sonar instruments. These instruments are hydroacoustic instrument capable for detecting bathymetry and determine the condition of the sea bottom. In this survey, the data acquisitions are conducted by using a Multibeam Reson Hydrobat and Side Scan Sonar EdgeTech 4200. Bathymetric data were processed using PDS 2000 and a Caris HIPS & SIPS 6. 1 software. Side Scan Sonar Data were processed with SonarWeb and a Caris HIPS & SIPS 6. 1 software. The results of the research are bathymetry map with depths ranging from 4. 07 meters to 58. 15 meters and found the multiple objects such as target-shaped box or square, strap-shaped targets, target-shaped small bumps, and target objects strapped. The mosaics of acoustic wave reflection intensity were resulted from the sea bottom and have been obtained the estimation value of the highest amplitude from the target shape of frame bridge is 7200–7974 mV and the lowest of the bottom substrate is 258-454 mV.
