Transfer by Fast Boat

What is fast boat?

Fast boat in this area refers to a medium size, fiber made vessel with capacity of 30 – 90 seats, powered by 800 – 2000 HP engines. There is also upper deck where people can sit while enjoying the outdoor scenes and wind instead of sitting on the cushion at lower deck, and also a toilet.
Fast boat runs at about 30 knots, giving the transfer time between Bali and Gili/Lombok around 1 hr 15 minutes (fast run, normal condition, via Padangbai harbor) or 2 hours (fast run, normal condition, via Sanur or Serangan harbor).

↑ top

Which boats go to Gili Meno?

No fast boat goes directly to Gili Meno. All fast boats stop at Gili Trawangan, Gili Air, and Lombok. This is because the beach on Gili Meno is a bit shallow that fast boat cannot landed there, and due to lack of visitor amount to Gili Meno.
To reach Gili Meno by fast boat, passengers should be transferred by a small hopping boat (either public boat or charter boat) once the fast boat landed.
If you want to go to Gili Meno, please inform us so we can arrange the complete transfer for you (not applicable for hopping by public boat, as the only way to get the public boat is by purchasing ticket on location).

↑ top

Which are the most suitable boat and harbor for me?

It depends on where your hotel location in Bali is and what is your trip preference. If you are staying in South or West Bali then Serangan harbor (Bluewater Express) or Sanur harbor (Semaya One or Scoot) are the closest land distance, but longer sea trip (about 2 hours 30 minutes). If you are staying in Ubud or South East Bali then departing from Padangbai (Ocean Star, Wahana Gili Ocean, Gili Gili, Marina Srikandi) has closer overland distance and also shorter sea trip (about 1 hour 30 minutes). If you stay in Amed you the most suitable is departing from Amed beach (Kuda Hitam Express). If you only want to go to Nusa Lembongan then your chance is only departing from Sanur harbor (Semaya One or Scoot).
