PACKAGE PRICE?

Our Comfort Diving package price is a price per person, however the price is based on a minimum of two people. This because, a package for one person is more expensive as you do not get to share the cost of most of our travel services with a travel buddy. If you want to book for more then 2 people, indicate this in the booking form on the left and the price per person will automatically decrease. If you want to book with more than 10 people, please also contact our agency so that we can offer you a custom price.

However, it is possible to book the trip by yourself and to go out on the water alone. An alternative is that we try to match you with another traveler who likes to go diving or that you bring someone on the water who likes to go snorkeling while you are exploring the deep waters. Many spots are perfect for both snorkeling and diving and the captain of the boat can accompany your friend while the guide follows you to the deeper waters. Please contact us if you would like to travel alone or do a snorkel-dive combo trip and want more information about that.

WHAT IS A DIVING TRIP?

A diving trip in Karimunjawa is perfect for those who want to dive deep and find the tranquility of the Java sea. Karimunjawa is perfect for snorkeling as a lot of the reef is relatively shallow, however, to spot the shyer fish and other sea creatures, a deeper dive into the water is the way to do it. Besides the deep reefs and the beautiful sea life, Karimunjawa has a rich history hidden on the bottom of the surrounding sea. Multiple shipwrecks, both in shallow and deep water, make Karimunjawa the perfect dive destination for both beginners and more experienced divers.

A comfort diving trip exists out of two dives, location depending on your experience, a visit to one of the islands to escape from the midday heat and enjoy a beautiful fish barbecue, and a second stop to another island, beach, or a mesmerizing place like a sandbank. This type of tour requires you to have a PADI registered diving license which will be checked before departure. If you want to add an extra dive this is also possible, one dive from around 45 minutes (depending on your oxygen usages).

Would you like to upgrade your package to a three dive diving package, please inform us and we will give you a costume price.

WHAT IS FOR LUNCH?

The snorkeling trip includes a barbecue on the beach during which the crew will prepare and serve fresh fish, vegetables, rice, egg/tempe/tofu, traditional crackers (Krupuk), water and fruit.

The lunch on arrival will be a delicious Pindang Serani (famous fish dish in Karimunjawa), served with vegetables, rice, egg/tempe/tofu, traditional crackers (Krupuk), refreshing drink and fruit.

If you are vegetarian please inform us, so we can offer you a different menu.

BOAT CHANGE OR UPGRADE?

If you would like to upgrade your boat ticket to a VIP ticket for the Bahari Express fast boat, or perhaps prefer to travel with the Siginjai Fery. Please contact us for a custom price.
