Excursions to the surrounding islands with our team TINTIN TOURS
These excursions are generally ½ day trips.
These islands are about a 30 minute boat ride south of Padang. A picnic lunch is included in the price.
Leaving on one of our boats, you will be taken to discover superb beaches in turquoise blue seas. For those who like to fish, they are particularly abundant in these waters, although this may depend on prevailing winds, tides and other meteorological factors.
The islands are a sight for sore eyes. You will be astonished by the different varieties of fish (more than 300 different species) and the beauty of the crystal-clear water and the coral. Here in the Indian Ocean the temperature of the water is the same all year round (about 28°C) and you would be forgiven for thinking you were swimming in an aquarium.It is the perfect place for snorkeling ; equipped with a mask and tuba, you will be shown the best spots to observe the underwater marine life.
N.B. Boat excursions may be cancelled depending on the weather conditions.
