The gorgeous new resort known as Legon Waru is the ideal complement to the Deluxe Snorkeling package. Perfect for a short stay on Karimunjawa island and for those who love snorkeling. It combines exploring the main island by car and driver with a full day on the water snorkeling and island hopping during a Private trip. Best of both worlds.
Currently, the package is available on Mondays and Fridays (following the fast boat schedule). If you prefer to book the package on another day. Please contact us for the option to come by slow boat.

If you want to book with more than 10 people, please also contact our agency so that we can offer you a custom price.

We encourage our guest to wear a shirt while snorkeling over the reef, not only to protect your own skin, but also to reduce the amount of sunscreen in the water as this is proven to be extremely harmful for the reef.
Yes this is no problem. However, to be considerate of the citizens of Karimunjawa, we urge you to wear clothes while leaving or returning from the tour or the beach. Please don’t walk through the village in only swimwear or in your bikini top.
