Safe, punctual and comfortable transport to a variety of island destinations-good value and schedules, too.

We arranged a pick up from our hotel in Sanur. This took place probably an hour earlier than necessary resulting in a long wait prior to the boat arriving. Poor facilities prior to boarding included lack of seating, little information and not much available in the way of refreshments. The actual ride over was very uncomfortable due to rough seas,...

Travelled to Gili T on Gili Cat 1 which was an awful, tiny boat that stunk of petrol. The sea was rough and you really feel it in this boat, I and numerous others were seasick. Travel back to Bali was on Gili Cat 2 a bigger boat that felt better but was the day before the tragic accident. Given... More

Hoards of backpackers climb aboard at each stop. There does not appear to be any capacity level. I stood the whole way from Padang Bai to Gili Air. Luggage is thrown around by crew and things loaded on top of it. This latest accident is unsurprising. It will be forgotten in a month and it will be more of the... More

We chose the Gili Cat boat for our trip from Gili Trawangan to Padang Bai, though we had travelled in using a different operator. Gili Cat provided a faster service to Padang Bai (1.5 hours with no stops) compared to 3 hours by the other operator. I was quite satisfied with the service provided. The boat seemed to be in...

If you want to visit the beautiful Nusa Lembogan island just in front of Sanur, then take the fast boat in only 30 minutes it takes you across. The harbour is on the beach so you need to walk into the sea to get on the boat.

We were picked up in Nusa Dua around 7, although we were told to be ready at 6.30. We arrived in Padang Bai and were quickly checked in and our luggage tagged.

We took gili cat back from guilt t to padangbai. We selected it since the had the later return time which meant more time on the island, but may have meant rougher sees. The seemed to have everyone in the dock on time, but the boat was late and so many boats using one dock meant we had to wait... More
