PACKAGE PRICE?

Our Standard Overland 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 with more than 10 people, please also contact our agency so that we can offer you a custom price.

WHAT IS A SHARED SNORKELING TRIP?

Unlike the private tour, during the shared island hopping and snorkeling tour you go out on the water with a larger group of travelers. This experience is made for travelers who like to get to know other guests and make unforgettable memories while cruising through beautiful Karimunjawa. There’s nothing like starting an unforgettable experience with strangers and ending it during the golden sunset with new friends.

At the beginning of the day, our team will prepare a program based on the weather conditions and the group. The program normally consists of visiting two snorkeling spots, lunch on one of the islands, and finally, an extra stop on a second island, or another unforgettable stop if the day allows it. Either on the west side or the east side, depending on the weather conditions.

The tour will depart from the harbor at 09:00 and return during sunset +/- 17:30. If we have enough guest we will set up a tour ourselves, if this is not the case, we will work together with other agents to combine one group on the water. The size of the group depends on the type of boat and its capacity.

Would you like to upgrade your package to a private snorkeling package, please inform us and we will give you a costume price.

WHAT ABOUT THE HIKING TRIP?

For the hiking trip in Karimunjawa we usually recommend one and the same spot due to the easy access but yet enjoyable track. Much of the Karimunjawa mountains aren’t accessible to guest or locals, just for park rangers. There are a couple of other tracks we could arrange for you, however they aren’t as nice as the one in this package.

It is possible to do the track in the afternoon, however do to the heat of the sun and the way it turns around during the day, we recommend hiking in the morning. Don’t worry, the track is very accessible for anybody with out excising physical problems and basic fitness.

Are you not in to hiking or is the hike alone not enough for you? It is possible to replace the hiking trip or add an extra trip, like for example with a kayaking adventure. Additional it is also possible to invite a guide along the way to driving around the island with you. For a custom package or other possibilities, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

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.
