Snorkeling package in Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, and Gili Air will provide you with a wonderful experience of exploring underwater beauty in Lombok
Snorkeling Trip in Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, and Gili Air
Lombok is increasingly popular as a tourist destination in Indonesia, thanks to the beautiful nature. Talking about tourism in Lombok, most travelers will likely refer to the wonderful 3 small islands (Gilis), namely Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, and Gili Air. Do not call yourself a real snorkeler or diving before trying the thrill of snorkeling trip in at least one of the islands. They are among the best snorkeling spots, not only in Lombok but also in Indonesia.
Of the three islands, Gili Trawangan is the most densely populated and most popular among tourists. Accordingly, the island has the most complete tourism-supporting facilities like hotels, homestay, cottages, bars, restaurants, cafes, shops, and watersport facility rentals. However, if you are looking for private atmosphere while enjoying the underwater beauty, Gili Meno and Gili Air are the options.
How to Enjoy Snorkeling in 3 Gilis
Before choosing your snorkeling trip package to Lombok, make sure to understand how the packages generally work. Basically, you have two options of snorkeling packages, namely:
This is the low-cost way to enjoy snorkeling in the 3 islands in a single package. You usually join other tourists (ranging from 20 to 50 tourists in a single boat) to visit the three islands using a motor boat. The advantage of this package includes much cheaper costs. However, the schedule is limited and you cannot tailor the schedule based on your personal preferences.
Sharing boat package is only available for travelers who stay in Gili Trawangan. It may not be a right choice if you stay in Lombok due to the limited schedule. It may be difficult for you to adjust the schedule to the trip from Lombok. The price of sharing-boat snorkeling package varies with travel agents, depending upon the additional services available. You may find sharing-boat package, which includes lunch and rental costs for snorkeling equipment.
As the name suggests, the package allows you to determine the route, since you use the boat privately. Of course, you need to pay more for this package. However, you can enjoy personalized snorkeling experience without the hassle of joining other snorkelers. To cut the costs, you can take the package in-group. Therefore, you can share the costs with other members in the group.
Duration of snorkeling in every island is adjusted to your preferences. If you still have time, you can even enjoy snorkeling in more than 3 spots. The main advantage of the package is flexibility to decide where to start snorkeling, either at Gili Trawangan or at Nara Bay in Lombok.
The former option is usually more expensive than the latter is. Of course, the costs depend upon the facilities you enjoy while snorkeling. Most boats used for private snorkeling packages in Gili Trawangan are equipped with glass bottom and the price includes rentals of equipment like vest, fins, and masks.
