When you travel on a Gili Getaway Fast Boat, you will also always receive onboard refreshments and chilled towels. In addition, upon check-in, you will find restaurant facilities, clean cars complete with air conditioning, knowledgeable drivers who are as friendly as they are smart, and a sunroof for enjoying the gorgeous archipelago sun.
The fact is that there are a number of fast boat services for transportation from Bali to the Gili Islands and Lombok, however Gili Getaway Fast Boat is the only Boat to Gili Trawangan from Bali and back. Our fast boat service leaves Serangan Harbor and goes direct and non-stop to Gili Trawangan. This entire trip takes approximately two hours to two hours and 15 minutes and is dependent upon the conditions at sea. Our Gili Getaway Fast Boat stops in Lombok or Gili Air once we have dropped off the guests from Trawangan, however it can be expected to always travel direct between Gili Trawangan and Bali.
Sometimes the Lombok Strait can prove treacherous for any fast boat service going from Bali to the islands. On some very rare occasions, our Gili Getaway Fast Boats are unable to run because of safety issues, but you can be sure that Gili Getaway will make every attempt at making this minor inconvenience less painful for our passengers either by a re-schedule of your departure or by arranging alternative transportation to Lombok, the Gili’s or Gili T. Making your Gili Getaway Fast Boat trip as stress-free and pleasant as possible is our main goal.
The Narooma is a high-powered speedboat that boasts three 250hp engines and has the capability of transporting passengers to their island getaways at a speed that gets them there one hour quicker than any of our competitors. This means that that we provide a reasonable pick-up time so that we can transfer you to Serangan Harbour on your holiday schedule.
New Gili Getaway Fast Boat Craft
At Gili Getaway, we have a brand new custom-built fiberglass speedboat that is truly deluxe and measures 15m/45 feet.

These luxurious seats are a full 1.3m/4’ wide, and there is stowage under the seats for small traveling bags.
