    The 17 Islands Marine Park has wonderful snorkeling and beautiful beaches, and Anto is a great guide.
    I just went on a one day trip to the 17 Islands Marine Park in Riung. It was great. We went to three locations for snorkeling and saw the Flying Fox colony of bats. The corals and tropical fish were spectacular.. The white sand beaches were beautiful. I was really fortunate to use Anto (WhatsApp +62 81237550811) as my guide. He was excellent and a really nice person. I highly recommend him. He was also a great cook. We stopped on one of the islands for lunch. Anto prepared a great grilled fish, which he served with aubergines, squid, rice, vegetables, salad, and fruit. It was as good as any restaurant l've been in. The people on the other boats that stopped to have lunch were envious. I had a wonderful time. If you are visiting Flores, definitely go to the 17 Islands Marine Park and contact Anto.

    Lucky is the best captain in riung
    We did 2 day trips with lucky and his crew and were really happy! The 1st day we went to the most common islands but left earlier than other boats so managed to have all the places for ourselves. The 2nd day we went to some less known islands and went back to a very good snorkelling site we really enjoyed the day before. Every day lucky ensured the itinerary was tailored to our requests and kept us on track all the time to ensure we made the most of our trip! The food was delicious and plentfull, the crew friendly and professional. Lucky charges way less than other people in riung but the service offered still was top notch! 100% recommended - you can reach him on WhatsApp +6281233528125 - just say Alex shared his number with you

    Relaxed boat trip
    We took a boat trip with Lucky as mentioned in previous reviews and were very satisfied. At the end our captain was his brother which was fine as well. He took us to see several islands and spots for snorkeling. For lunch we met with Lucky's boat and few other tourists and the crew prepared a delicious lunch for us (grilled fish with rice, noodles, vegetable and more). Price was reasonable and we could rent snorkeling gear as well.

We really enjoyed our two day boat trip around the 17 Islands. We booked directly with Lucky (+6281233528125) who arranged for us to go out both days with his friend and captain, Leo. Leo and his son are the sweetest people and very nice to be around and they took us to 7 islands in total, all of which were amazing. The beaches are beautiful and the snorkelling is some of the best we have done in our 18 months of travelling. The coral is breathtaking, in very good condition, and we saw so much incredible marine life. Lunch on both days was super tasty - fresh bbq fish, noodles, rice, aubergine, sambal and crackers. Fruit was also provided as well as coconuts to drink on our second day. The 17 Islands are stunning - most of the time we had the beaches and snorkelling spots to ourselves as the national park is not busy, even in the peak season. Riung is slightly difficult to get to but it is certainly worth the effort - because of the 17 Islands. Contact Lucky to arrange your trip. He was kind enough to drive us to and from the pier on both days and gave us a discounted rate for booking two days. He is also much cheaper than what we were quoted by our hotel owner.

Our snorkeling trip to 17 islands including visit of the flying foxes was perfectly organized by Riung Boat Trip Organizer. Mat and Ardi took us to the best snorkeling places and BBQ on the beach was very delicious. The young coconut at the end of the trip was a nice surprise.

Very beautiful Islands. Not many people when we went. We were lucky because the weather was perfect.
We visited 4 islands and saw the giant fruit bats.

One of the best island - snorkeling- chilling out places you can visit. Great visibility, huge range of marine life, warm water, sunshine, and a great lunch and guide provided by cafe Del Mar.

SEE MY OTHER POST of the amazing trip of camping on the deserted islands!

As I get many questions regarding how to contact Rian (as his number is blocked due to privacy reasons). Lets try again.

Me and my boyfriend went back in October 2019 to do the trip again! It was still amazing!!
