A special experience: swimming with whale sharks on the neighboring island of Sumbawa, east of the island of Lombok.

Day 1: Lombok - Snorkeling on Gili Kenawa in West Sumbawa - Sumbawa Besar.
Departure from hotel in Senggigi or Kuta around 8am after breakfast. The journey goes northeast to Labuhan Lomboker Port, from where the ferry departs for West Sumbawa, approximately 2 hours. Arrive in Sumbawa. We take a boat to Gili Kenawa, a beautiful little remote island with white sand beaches near Pototano Harbour. Snorkeling, lounging and strolling around the small island. At 3pm the boat departs for the mainland for the onward journey approximately 1.5 to Sumbawa Besar, the capital of Sumbawa Besar. Overnight stay in a hotel** or *** included.

Day 2: Sumbawa Besar - Whale Shark Watching - Lombok.
Get up early. Departure at 3 o'clock in the morning to the port and continue with a traditional fishing boat to the observation platform in the sea about 1 hour drive from the mainland. From the platform you will watch the whale shark while our local guide feeds the whale shark with lots of small fish. When the whale sharks are there you are allowed to jump into the water with their snorkeling witnesses as the whale sharks are harmless. Around 8am we drive back to the mainland and then continue to the hotel for breakfast. At 11 am return to Lombok back to your pre-booked hotel. END of the journey.
