Wahana Gili Ocean fast boat started operating to Gili Trawangan in 2010. They started with one small boat but now have a fleet of 3 fast boat from Bali to Gili Trawangan, the latest being a 17 seater that operates the route from (Padang Bai) Bali to Gili Trawangan, Lombok and Gili Air. This Indonesian owned and managed company is based in Bali and has rapidly become known as one of the more reliable local fast boat companies.
The boats are similar in design, facilites and safety equipment, the main difference being the size and number of seats. Generally the management will choose which boats they are going to use depending on the number of passengers they need to transport on each trip each day. This means that you never really know which boat you will travel on until you are boarding.
Each day they have a morning and an early afternoon departure to and from Bali to Gili Trawangan. This is particularly useful for anyone arriving in Bali on a morning flight as you will be able to get to the Gilis if you are in Padang Bai at 12:30. This should be possible for all flights arriving before 10:00. Also the morning departure from Gili Trawangan (via Gili Air and Lombok Bangsal) to Bali is perfect for catching late afternoon flights out of Bali Denpasar. The 10:30 departure from Gili Trawangan should have you to the aiport by 16:00 - 17:00.
