Wat is er NIET inbegrepen?
Visum, vluchten, reisverzekering en vaccinaties zijn NIET inbegrepen in de programmakosten. Afhaling van de luchthaven is ook niet inbegrepen in de programmakosten.
Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is Lombok International Airport (LOP) in Praya. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar Indonesië.
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Indonesië biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Indonesië dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Indonesië.

Gegevens over jouw aankomst

Our Projects run throughout the year and Monday is our Arrival/Departure day.

Please bear in mind that if you are not already a qualified diver this will take a minimum of 4 days to complete before you can join in on any of the underwater activities.

Getting here:

Lombok International Airport (LOP) is the closest airport, we can organise Airport transfer through local trusted drivers who will pick you up from the Airport (approx. 1hr 30min trip) and bring you to where our boat can collect you and take you on the 10 min trip to our facility. This is an additional cost (approx. £25 or $30) that you can pay to your driver directly  through us.

If you are already in Indonesia and are travelling from Bali or elsewhere by boat we can also organise a driver to collect you from either Bangsal (Gilis port) or Lembar (main port) we can advise you of this cost if you decide to arrive by boat.
