I sent an email asking for quotes from a number of companies. Some companies claimed that we would need 2 boats for our party of 9 people, but we wanted to stay together in 1 boat. Thom from www.krakatauadventure.com provided the lowest quote and was very prompt in answering all of my concerns, such as assurance in using 1 boat,... More

I booked a day trip (950 000 Rp) from Hotel Beringin (Kalianda). I backpack through Asia, so if I pay now and then a lot of money for a tour, it has to be worth it... In my opinion this price is way too high for what you get: -2 lifejackets for 5 people -a small wooden kano with a... More

Hi guys, Me and my 5 friend who are working in Jakarta we had decided and after few months finally managed trip to Krakatau. As we are working we were able to go only for a weekend. Unfortunately for Krakatau you need to leave port in West coast of Java Saturday early at 8am-9am. Therefore we left (with usual delay)... More

If you like to see this living legend, I recommend you to go any other time than July. Is Ramadhan for Indonesian muslims and there's no many tourists around. A trip to the volcano usually includes: Boat ride, permit from government to go to the area, meals (lunch, snacks & water), equipment for snorkeling. The tour price was Rp 4,500,000... More

Used Krakatoa Tur based in Carita and a man called Thom as manager as recommended by a previous review below. 2 days 1 night trip. Absolutely brilliant - everything was organised perfectly everything was safe, guides with good English. Everything was thought through properly - food on late arrival, water and even got to meet Thoms English students afterwards and... More

At quite short (ie, one day's) notice I was able to do an excellent day trip from Jakarta to Krakatau, organised by Ibu Tuti of the Jakarta City Government Tourism and Culture Office (on the ground floor of the Djakarta Theatre Building, across the street from Plaza Sarinah). I was collected right on time (5am) by my driver, Pak Ibnu... More

This place is historic and has a magical aurra about it. Anak Krakatau sits grandly next to the imposing neighbour Rataka. You land on black sand beach and take short stroll through the shrub and then make the easy climb. The higher you go the rockier it becomes so wearing trainers is best (but can manage with sandals). You can... More

Remember, this is Indonesia. There is a scale for people/cost per person, a single traveler being around 4 million. Funny enough, there were 5 of us at the morning meeting place of Thom's, Krakatau Adventures. A couple, 2 women and myself. Between the 5 of us we could have paid at least half of what we did as the 5... More

First, the website that is linked to this attraction is not the only tour operator and I used Krakatau Adventure and Thom, so this review is unrelated to the link above. Do a Google search and you will find my guide. I'm going to spend a lot of time on this review, providing as much detail of the trip as... More
