If you haven't purchased your Blue Water ticket yet, take Sea Marlin from Padang Bai..

It stops at T and then at Meno.

Otherwise, you can 'rent' a boat from T to Meno for about 250,000 Rp or take the next island hopper boat for 50,000 Rp.

Go to the white house on T to get a boat, and NOT from someone on the beach.

Island hopper is only twice a day, so there may be a wait.

Do you have time to burn or money to spend???

Enjoy Meno, we will be there from 26 Apr-10 May.... LOVE IT!!!

Thanks Bill! Your advice is a god-sent!

Is sea marlin safe? I don't have money to burn but I will pay for safety! I was wondering if you had any dealings with Indra Jaya? I think they go same route but terrible reviews online...(sigh~~)

We have used hem in the past, and they were fine, but but prefer Marlin now.

The price is around 800,000 Rp for a round trip, so don't get scammed.

Get to Padang Bai the ay before, if possible, and walk around, checking out all the fast boat options.

We'll be at The REEF, if you are there the same time as us, Bungalow #2.

Safe travels~~~

On a side note, Bill, do I need Anti-Malaria pills for Meno?

There is no malaria on Gili Meno, so you will not need any anti malaria pills.

I also have some more recent info about the boats (I was there a few weeks ago), a charter boat from Gili T to Meno is 3-400.000 now and Sea Marlin has skipped Gili Meno a few times, so if you go with them you should make sure they are really going there. Indra Jaya has as far as I know not done that.

If you check Indra Jaya webpage it seems you can get a return ticket for 59 USD. http://www.indrajayafastboat.com/

Thank you Dennis H! Did you use Sea Marlin or Indra Jaya? Were they safe?
