It will cost us $538 and we need a group of 13 to make this trip happen. It includes the following 

1) Return ferry ticket from Singapore to Bintan, inclusive of Singapore and Bintan Departure Fees and fuel surcharge  
2) Return ferry ticket from Bintan to Anambas, inclusive of Indonesia Terminal Fees.  
3) 1 night stay in Bintan hotel and 4 nights stay in Anambas hotel. Hotels have no star, but is clean with private toilet and twin sharing. We have to catch the early ferry to Anambas so I will be choosing a hotel near the ferry terminal which may not be the best.  
4) All land transport within Anambas  
5) All sea transport within Anambas and return speed boat from Anambas to Palau Bawah  
6) 1 brand new snorkeling set for you to take home.  
7) Tips for guide

Not included 
1) All meals, budget $20 for all 3 meals every day 
2) Personal expenses

Note 
1) More than 6 months validity passport and valid visa to Indonesia 
2) This place is fairly remote and tourism not developed so we can't be expecting Maldives or Krabi standards. As such the reason we are preparing our own snorkeling set.
