Riding fast boats to the fantastic coral-ringed Gili Islands is one of the mandatory experiences while in Bali. Boats leave from major ports around Bali, specifically on the east coast between Sanur and Amed to destinations in Gili Trawangan, Gili Air, Gili Meno, Nusa Lembongan and Lombok islands.

Padang Bai on the east coast is a common launch point for many fast boat companies. The trip usually takes 1.5 hours one way but depends on your departure port. When the water is rough it can take longer to safely cross the channel. Boats run mostly set schedules daily with return trips running generally:

  • Departure (Bali) 09:15 Arrival (Gili) 10:45
  • Departure (Gili) 11:20 Arrival (Bali) 13:00
