PACKAGE PRICE?

Our Comfort Island Expedition 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. Please contact us if you would like to travel alone and want more information about that. 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 for more than 10 people or are looking for a cheaper camping option without a private snorkeling tour, please also contact our agency so that we can offer you a custom price.

WHAT IS PRIVATE SNORKELING & CAMPING TRIP?

Are you looking for a unique experience? Then the Island Expedition trip is made for you. The trip is a combination between camping and exploring the Karimunjawa archipelago waters. Made for people who like to spend more time out on the water than on the main island. You will have some time to explore the main island and town, but the main focus of the trip is on the water and over the reefs. Some may say it is the experience of a lifetime.

Stay on an island in the middle of the sea, where you can only find white sand, palm trees, blue water, and beautiful stars. Combined with 1,5 days of private snorkeling. One spot on day one and a great variety of beautiful snorkeling spots (often two spots), visit to another small paradise islands with bounty white beaches and more memorable sights like a sandbank or a turtle sanctuary on day two. Either on the west side or the east side, depending on the weather conditions.

Great your own day and spend the time with a private group of family and friends. You decide where we go, when we move to the next location and when we are going home. Obviously, our team will give the necessary notes so that we can realize a safe and beautiful day for our guests. We provided basic camping gear and the necessary food supplies; however, we won’t stop you if you prefer to sleep under the stars. Discover Karimunjawa the adventures way.

Would you like to book a more affordable option without a private snorkeling trip or with camping on the main land, 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 at Bukit Love Karimunjawa. Depending on their availability your lunch will be an Indonesian dish like Nasi Goreng, Mie Goreng, Ayam Geprek or something else available.

Dinner and breakfast during the camping trip will be relatively easy as you have to prepare it yourself with the limited sources. However, if you like to add a breakfast service or barbecue to your package, this is of course possible.

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.
