Ferrys to Gillie T

I am currently in Legion and booked to go to Gillie from 6/8-9/8. O don't seem to be able to get a consistent answer about if ferrys will be running . Also concerned about being stuck on island and missing flights home .

Hi Jenny,

You won't get a 'consistent' answer because nobody can accurately predict what the seastate will be. Suffice to say the seastate has been very unusual (for the time of year) recently and the boat services can only go on a day-to-day basis. The Boat services need to get the ok from the Bali "coastguard" authorities before they can run.

You won't get stuck on the Gilis as if the boats are cancelled back to Bali simply get a local boat to the Lombok mainland, taxi to Airport and fly back.

Limited fast boats started today but had to turn back due to terrifying conditions, and now all are cancelled again until at least 5th but could be longer.

Irrespective of the current weather event causing this, flying is always the best and safest option. Precook because there is high demand due to the fast boat situation.
