We'd booked 9 tickets directly from this company from Bali to Gili Trawangan. They promised to arrange hotel transfer to harbor on our departure date. It's unbelievable that their driver was no show and even their emergency contact number was no body answer. I deeply regreted that why I didn't take most of the bad reviews from Tripadvisor and still... More

This is the only fast boat company that I have traveled with, but the trip was quick, comfortable and felt very safe. Bought tix from a little stall in Padangbai for 400,000Rp return, and could buy bintang while sitting on top of the boat for the trip for 25,00Rp. Would defiantly travel with them again.

Was booked on 11am boat Padangbai to Gili T. Boat was at Dock, then sailed to other part of Barbour, with crew laughing. Turns out the joke was on us. They cancelled the 11am boat and stuck everybody onto the already crowded 1pm boat to save gas and increase profits. Passengers who were kept waiting on the dock for two... More

From Lombok I went to Bali by boat. The agent I booked the ticket with told me the boat leaves at 10am. Their leaflet says free pickup from the hotel so I called Eka Jaya but this only applies Bali. The person on the phone said there won't be a boat at 10am but at 11am so I tell him... More

I would not be reporting this kind of episode, but in the month of May I was in Bali Eka Jaya and hired to go to Gili Islands and had my camera stolen by the driver who took us to the port of Padang Bay , which for those who do not know , is the place where boats depart... More

I had never been to Gili T before and the reviews of these fastboats was very off putting. We were a group of 6 travelling. My driver booked for us and assured us the company was safe. I had my doubts and to be honest was not looking forward to the trip. I must say that we were more than... More

I thought I would write a review after hearing all the bad reviews I was nervous to go on this boat but already had a ticket. My experience was great! We got to the harbour at 8.40 and the boat departed around 9.30. The guys on the boat were professional and it was a smooth journey over. They even have... More

The trip was surprisingly good. Maybe the company is under new management, because I had a great time in the boat (it wasn't late by the way), it wasn't crowded, I could watch a movie on their TV, and the air-con was so cold I was about to pick up my jumper (IN BALI!). Let's see how the trip back... More

Caught a ride with these guys from Gili T to Padang Bai for 300000k and it turned into a pretty crap experience. First off the boat arrived 1 hour late and after boarding it looked like it was overloaded with to many passengers standing or lying on the floor. The air conditioning was broken and the windows could not be... More

Padang bai to Gili: shuttle took forever, got to ferry terminal, bags loaded, waited an hour past departure time in the sun and ended up having to take another boat because this one was full! Should have arrived at 11.30 didn't get in until 1pm then had to wait for the other ferry which had gone to Lombok first (even... More
