We run a few different budget trips aimed for backpackers who want to get off the beaten trail and explore Lombok and Sumbawa. Around the 3 Gili islands we also offer private day charters, we no longer run group party boats only private ones, perfect for groups of friends (max 30 people) who have something to celebrate. Our trip to Moyo and Satonda is our favourite and offers something for everyone! We spend 6 nights exploring waterfalls, a volcano and volcanic lake, snorkeling beautiful reefs and deserted beaches.If you wish to dive, Moyo, Satonda and Medang offer some great reefs, incredible visability, a small WW2 wreck and the odd passing palegic. Sekotong and Desert Point is much closer to home and run a 2 night island hopping trip to the beautiful islands around Sekotong, where you can relax, snorkel, dive or surf the world famous Desert Point, one of best breaks in the world.If diving is your thing the area also offers the chance to dive with the elusive hammerhead shark! Every year we run one Exploration trip, Indonesia is home to countless unexplored waters and we like nothing more than to stick a pin in a map and head off to explore each spring. For more information on our up coming Exploration trip please visit our website. In July 2015 we will also be running a one off trip to The Philippines from Gili T, the trip will run over 2 months and is broken up into legs so you can jump on and jump off along the way. For more information on this epic trip please visit our website!

We had a brilliant day on the boat diving off the top was huge fun for my children. Katie and Rich are great fun and very chilled. I would recommend the party boat to anyone wanting to experience a boat trip that they will always remember.

Not impressed with south sea nomads. We had booked the party boat a few months in advance. Very last minute they canceled on us, saying that a large group missed their boat to Gili and there were not enough people. However, they had also repeatedly contacted my friend weeks before asking him to switch boats/days..so who knows. We also tried... More

Great laid back people that make it comfortable for everyone to be social and fun on their boat. Unlimited beer to buy just tally as you grab one, lots of jumping in spots, snorkelling and great way to meet people. Was so much fun :-)

I'm not usually one for party boats... But I got invited to this one with a whole bunch of friends also going. We had a great time, I was totally wrong about party boats... Well this one in particular! Katie and Rich looked after us and took us to some great snorkel spots (with lots of turtles) and then to... More

The boat is such a great way to see the Gili Islands and Katie and the crew are super friendly. Drinks are really reasonably priced and it's a great way to meet other people - which is sometimes hard when you're in a couple. Sunsets are amazing in Gilis and seeing one over the still clear waters from the boat... More

Some of my best memories in Indonesia were spent with South Sea Nomads! I wen't out with South Sea Nomads for both their party boat and a longer live aboard dive trip. The party boat was one of the best days of the vacation! Everyone who joined was very friendly and just there to have a great time! We went... More

I have been on a few party boat sunset trips with these guys and they're excellent, you get on a boat with a bunch of cool strangers and by the end of a beautiful day snorkelling and swimming and eating noodles and drinking you're all best mates. Often the fun continues when you finally get back on land after watching... More
