By fast boat from Bali

You can reach the island with a number of direct daily fast boat services leaving from:

All fast boat operators offer nearly the same service. The selection (vehicles, boats, schedule, place of departure) depends on the season and is subject to regular changes. The most fast boat services include free pickup and drop off to your hotel at Bali (only for limited coverage areas like south Bali and Ubud), so you don't need to arrange the transportation from your hotel to the harbor.

The internet offers of the fast boat companies or travel agencies are generally overpriced except Marina Srikandi and Wahana Ocean. The best price you may get in Bali at a travel agent. Please take care of unreliable agents. You are welcome to contact us if you need help or advise.

For more information (schedule, pick up time, child fare) please check the websites of the fast boat operators.

By boat from Lombok (Bangsal harbor)

 If you arrive directly via flight, slow ferry or fast boat at Lombok, you need a taxi or charter a car to Bangsal harbor for your trip to Gili Air by public boat. Unfortunately, the harbor is not really a place where you feel comfortable. Many people try to sell boat tickets, day trips and other things. To protect yourself against fraud, it is advisable to buy tickets at the official ticket office. This is located on the stairs before heading to the beach. There is no timetable for the public boat. It will depart when there are 30 passengers’ names on the list. Put your name on the list at the ticket office and await the announcement of departure. Try to get to Bangsal at around 09:30AM or 10:30AM as most boats go in the morning. Please note that the last public boat leaves approximately by 4 pm. If you don't want to wait, you can also charter a boot or buy the rest of the tickets. There are fixed prices for the public boat (15.000 IDR/person) and a boat charter (360.000 IDR/person) between 7am and 16.30pm. If you arrive outside this time, the price depends your bargaining skills. If you like or forced to charter a boat, a speed boat charter at the harbor Teluk Nara is preferable.

An alternative to public transport is private speed boat service from Teluk Nare/Teluk Kodek harbor (another 10 minutes drive from Bangsal).
