This alternative snorkeling is the same as “public snorkeling” only the departure time only from 01:00 am – 05:00 pm and the price is more expensive Rp 150,000 / person and if less than 15 participants are canceled.
The advantage of alternative snorkeling is usually not too huddled on the Trip boat, can avoid the crowds of the public group snorkeling at snorkeling spots because the snorkeling spot is just a location.
Not all beaches are good snorkeling places and before snorkeling you can have lunch before the trip starts and there is time to find a lunch location according to your will. Why do I say alternatives? Well this is indeed an alternative schedule because there are several reasons and the reasons for this are because:
- Very often tourists come to Gili Trawangan by using fast boats from Bali directly to the port of Gili Trawangan but unfortunately they cannot follow the schedule of “Public Snorkeling” because the speed boat arrival schedule from Bali is the earliest around 10:30 am while at that time it is the scheduled Public departure Snorkeling was not a chance to snorkel on the day of arrival while the agenda was to stay at Gili Trawangan only overnight and tomorrow morning to check out the hotel at 11:00 am.
- Often tourists who stay in Senggigi, Mataram, Kuta Lombok or from other places arrive late to arrive on Gili Trawangan for various reasons, especially those who are most often due to wake up late so that the plan that should arrive on Gili Trawangan at 10:00 am actually arrives at 11:00 am and finally left behind to follow the Public Snorkeling schedule.
- Sometimes there are other causes, tourists who had already calculated the time to arrive on Gili Trawangan at 10:00 am turned out to be stuck in traffic due to many kinds of causes that were never expected and eventually lost time on the road, and most often if tourists came by using Public Boat crossing transportation because it is too long to queue to wait for a full boat.
- An alternative way to still be able to take part in the Public Snorkeling so that you don’t pay more is Rp 150,000 when you check out at a lodging or hotel where you stay, you should be able to make sure that the luggage is left in the hotel office if allowed or can leave luggage where you buy a Snorkeling trip ticket
For all use of snorkeling equipment must be accounted for if it occurs lost or released while snorkeling especially fin, mask and snorkel. If this happens, immediately report to the snorkel guide so that it can be taken, if it cannot be taken because it falls at a depth that is difficult to reach, then the participant must compensate for the falling instrument by 75% of the price in the shop.
