My budget is really limited, and I need assurance that the minimum quota is met so that I don’t have to make additional payments!

We cannot guarantee that the minimum quota will be met, but we collaborate with other tour operators to maximize the number of participants.

When should I be in Labuan Jambu Village?

The trip starts at 03.30 in the morning, so it is highly recommended that you be in Labuan Jambu Village one day before.

Our guide is waiting at the meeting point location at 03.30 in the morning with the coordinates: We will inform the guide’s name and contact a maximum of one day before the program.

Do you have any suggestions on how to get to Sumbawa Island from Lombok?

You can use public transportation from Mataram City, Lombok, to Sumbawa Besar City, which is approximately a 6-7 hour journey. You can search for public transportation options by using the keyword “Panca Sari Travel” on Google.

Once you arrive in Sumbawa Besar City, you will need to find a way to reach Labuan Jambu Village. Here are a few alternatives:

  1. Charter a vehicle with a cost of IDR 1,000,000 and stay in Labuan Jambu Village. This price includes a return trip to Sumbawa Besar City after your trip.
  2. Stay overnight in Sumbawa Besar City, then head to Labuan Jambu Village at 01:00 AM in the early morning to reach the meeting point. For this option, you can use our service at a cost of IDR 250,000 per person and join other participants who also choose this option. (For this option, you do not need to book a hotel in Labuan Jambu).

What equipment do I need?

We provide all the equipment you need (snorkel, mask and fins), but feel free to bring your own.

We also suggest bringing ear plugs because of the loud sound of the boat’s engine that will be used to go to the Whale Shark location (tourism is not yet developed so that the facilities and infrastructure are still quite minimal).
